Optilogic and Gurobi:

The Next Generation of Cloud Optimization Development



At Optilogic, we’re revolutionizing the optimization industry by breaking down the barriers to accessibility. To do that, we’ve partnered with Gurobi, the fastest mathematical optimization solver on the market, to offer an end-to-end solution for high-fidelity modeling, optimization, and deployment.

Tune into our on-demand webinar: Optilogic and Gurobi: The Next Generation of Cloud Optimization Development to learn more about how modelers can leverage Gurobi and optimize from anywhere in the world with Optilogic. 

We're joined by Edward Rothberg, CEO and Co-Founder of Gurobi, Don Hicks, CEO of Optilogic. We also show a demo of Optilogic with Matt Bates, Product Manager at Optilogic, and Dan Jeffrey, Senior Technical Account Manager at Gurobi.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How individual users can maximize the power of Gurobi with Optilogic
  • To build, deploy, and hyperscale models (in minutes!) using Optilogic
  • How to use Gurobi results to power applications
