AIMMS works with a global ecosystem of consulting companies and resellers to deliver powerful optimization solutions to customers. For the next installment in our Partner Spotlight series, we spoke to Jacob Jan Paulus, Senior Consultant at CQM. CQM is a data science consulting firm based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. They offer optimization, statistics and AI applications with focus ranging from industry, retail, and service.CQM has been a partner almost since the beginning of AIMMS – about 30 years. How has the relationship developed over the years?We’ve currently got about 15 specialists who use AIMMS regularly. In the last few years we’ve had some bigger projects, which brought us in closer contact with the AIMMS support team, and resulted in a growing relationship with R&D. In working together, we have shared insights about users’ needs and provided a lot of input for the development of new features.How has AIMMS been a part of your career with CQM?I used AIMMS while I was tea
It’s been more than two years since we launched the [url=https://www.aimms.com/english/software-solutions/software/aimmsprescriptiveanalytics/aimms-cloud/]AIMMS Cloud Platform[/url]. During this time, we’ve seen the AIMMS Cloud grow in both its use and robustness. In this article, I’ll share some highlights of the technology behind it and why we’re pleased to see that almost 90% of new customers choose to deploy their Apps using the Cloud. [h3]AIMMS Cloud Platform: the early days [/h3]We officially released the AIMMS Cloud Platform at the AIMMS Summit in 2017, but we had been working with three launching customers for almost a year ahead of that time. Enterprise IT adoption of cloud was accelerating. We noticed that most of our customers were experiencing IT-related friction when adopting AIMMS PRO. They were dependent on the prioritization, capacity and skills of their company's IT departments. They also had a hard time answering questions from their IT colleagues, such as the sizi

AIMMS emerged 30 years ago to bring the benefits of optimization to society. The internet was in its infancy back then. As many of you know, our original UI was made for Windows, which meant that end users would need to use the Windows operating system in their computers to run AIMMS Apps. As time passed and the internet came of age, we realized that to truly democratize the power of optimization, AIMMS needed to be in the browser. That’s why we decided to develop the [url=https://aimms.com/english/developers/product-info/aimms-web-ui]AIMMS WebUI[/url], a tool that helps you build optimization apps in a browser, on any device, and create a web-based user interface for end users. Our decision to build the WebUI coincided with the launch of [url=https://aimms.com/english/developers/product-info/aimms-pro/]AIMMS PRO[/url], which also made the deployment of AIMMS Apps more seamless. Besides making AIMMS software more accessible, the WebUI had a powerful side-effect. Suddenly, we co
The WebUI is one of the main focus areas within our product development. For 2019 we have set ourselves the goal that we want AIMMS developers to be ‘happy’ when they use the WebUI. So far, we asked a selected group of users to tell us if we are making progress. Every 2 months we ask them the same question. [b][i]How likely are you to recommend WebUI to another AIMMS app developer?[/i][/b] Feel invited to help and join our ‘road to happiness’- team by answering this one question: [url=https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Y9KT6SM]https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Y9KT6SM[/url] Thanks [i]And, of course, you can also share your thoughts by replying to this post.[/i]

[b]Want to build your internal capability, reduce costs and make better decisions? It's easier than you think.[/b] We’ve all been there. You have tough decisions to make about your network design. You may have recently had M&A activity, about to roll out a new product line or need to cut costs. You need answers to urgent network questions, but weeks go by. When you finally have the analysis, everything has changed, and it is no longer relevant. How can you build this capability in-house and get the answers you need in a timely way? This webinar will share research findings from Supply Chain Insights, including the top 5 obstacles that bog you down when trying to improve your network design efforts: [list] [*]Poor data quality [*]Lack of skilled resources [*]Don’t have the right tools/tools are too complex or expensive [*]Lengthy time to plan/execute [*]Lack of upper management support [/list] Paul and Brian will discuss how to tackle these obstacles, outline steps you ca

In January we announced that AIMMS releases will be compiled and offered using [u]Visual Studio 2017 only[/u] per [u]May 1, 2019[/u]. This means that, to keep benefiting from the latest releases of AIMMS, our customers [b][u]need to upgrade[/u][/b] their [i]on premise[/i] AIMMS PRO version if they have not done so yet ([b][u]version 2.28 or higher[/u][/b]!).
[h3]Why we started the AIMMS Online Community[/h3] It’s been three decades since AIMMS was founded. Throughout the years, we’ve had a very close relationship with our users. Many of them have contributed to build and improve our product. From creating schedules for their children’s school to optimizing country-wide power grids and designing flights routes for those in need. We’re reminded of all the impactful things our users achieve with AIMMS every day and we’ve discovered that they can be quite passionate about our software. Our Online Community was the logical next step to bring AIMMS enthusiasts together. [h3]A place that supports you in your optimization journey[/h3] Applying optimization is a journey. From time to time, there will be moments where you could use help or inspiration. We find that our users are increasingly asking for documentation, use cases and best practices. They also want to hear what other customers are doing and want to share their know-how wit
