Analytic Solver for Excel: Upgrades from Analytic Solver Basic

Analytic Solver Optimization

Our Best Platform for Conventional Optimization

Easily the most popular Excel optimizer ever offered, Analytic Solver Optimization (formerly Premium Solver Platform) is designed to handle every type and size of conventional optimization problem (without uncertainty). Unlike much other optimization software, it maximally exploits the multiple cores in your modern PC. You can use it to solve nonlinear models 10 times larger than the Excel Solver, and linear models 40 times larger!

But that’s only the beginning – with optional Solver Engines that “plug in” to Analytic Solver Optimization, you can scale up your models to the largest sizes available with any software, anywhere – even millions of decision variables. There are 8 plug-in Solver Engines to choose from, and you pay for them only if and when you need them. Analytic Solver Optimization is 100% upward compatible from the Excel Solver and from Analytic Solver Upgrade, and it works with Analytic Solver Simulation to handle optimization models with uncertainty. No wonder it’s been the best-selling Excel optimizer for many years!

Analytic Solver Simulation

Ultimate Simulation/Risk Analysis and Simulation Optimization Power in Excel

Analytic Solver Simulation (expanded from Risk Solver Pro) is the ultimate tool for decision-making under uncertainty. With point-and-click decision trees, a Distribution Wizard, 50 probability distributions, automatic distribution fitting, compound distributions, rank-order correlation and three types of copulas, 50 statistics, risk measures and Six Sigma functions, easy multiple parameterized simulations, and simulation optimization with our Evolutionary Solver, it has all the power you need. It maximally exploits the multiple cores in your modern PC in Monte Carlo simulation and simulation optimization. And it works with Analytic Solver Optimization to help you scale up optimization models with uncertainty, and solve them using stochastic programming and robust optimization methods.

Analytic Solver Data Mining

Unlimited Capacity for Data Visualization, Data Mining and Forecasting in Excel

Analytic Solver Data Mining (formerly XLMiner Platform) gives you comprehensive forecasting, data mining, and text mining tools in Excel – with all the power, capacity, and accuracy of the best-known statistical software packages.  You can sample data from spreadsheets, SQL databases and Power Pivot, explore your data visually, clean and transform your data, and create, evaluate and apply a wide range of forecasting and data mining models -- from ARIMA and exponential smoothing, to multiple regression and logistic regression, discriminant analysis and naive Bayes, to classification and regression trees, neural networks, association rules, and ensembles of "weak learners".  What's more, you can apply any of these methods to results from text mining, including latent semantic analysis.  Its speed will amaze you!

Analytic Solver Comprehensive

Our "Super-Product" - Forecasting, Data Mining, Simulation, Conventional and Stochastic Optimization in Excel

Analytic Solver Comprehensive (formerly Analytic Solver Platform) does it all in Microsoft Excel, accessing data from PowerPivot and SQL databases.  Combining all of the power of Analytic Solver Optimization, Analytic Solver Simulation and Analytic Solver Data Mining at a lower license price than the sum of its three components, it offers easy to use, yet truly powerful and comprehensive data exploration and visualization, forecasting, data mining, simulation/risk analysis, decision trees, and conventional and stochastic optimization.  And it accepts the same plug-in, large-scale Solver Engines as Analytic Solver Optimization, enabling you to solve conventional and stochastic optimization problems of virtually any size in Excel.

Solver SDK Platform

Ultimate Simulation, Conventional and Stochastic Optimization Power Outside Excel

What if you want to build larger optimization or simulation models in a custom application? What if you want to deploy your (largest) Excel-based optimization and simulation models on remote desktops, an Intranet or Web server, or in the cloud? You can do all of these things with Solver SDK Platform.

Its rich object-oriented API closely matches the object-oriented APIs of our Excel-based products, and it’s 100% upward compatible from Solver SDK Pro, across all the supported languages (C/C++, C#, Java, R, Python, MATLAB, Visual Basic and VB.NET) – just re-link your application and go! It goes further to exploit multi-core processors and even compute clusters, without special programming effort on your part. It accepts all the same plug-in, large-scale Solver Engines as Analytic Solver Optimization and Analytic Solver Comprehensive. But most remarkable is its ability to load Excel workbooks containing optimization and simulation models, created in any Analytic Solver version, and run them without needing Excel, on desktops, servers or in the cloud.

Our Entry-Level Products: Proven Performance at a Low Cost

Analytic Solver Upgrade

100% Compatible Upgrade for the Excel Solver at Modest Cost

Analytic Solver Upgrade (formerly Premium Solver Pro) isn’t free, but it’s far less expensive than most alternatives for optimization, inside and outside Excel. It’s 100% upward compatible from the Solver in Excel, for both models and VBA macros – just open your Excel workbook and run. You can solve nonlinear models 2.5 times larger than the Excel Solver, and linear models 10 times larger.

Analytic Solver Upgrade gives you both Solver dialogs familiar from the Excel Solver, and a new Ribbon and Task Pane user interface, used in all of Frontline’s other Excel products. Using model analysis and Guided Mode, you won’t have to guess whether your model is linear or nonlinear, or which “solving method” to use – Analytic Solver Upgrade will tell you automatically!

Analytic Solver Basic

Learn Forecasting, Data Mining, Simulation, and Optimization in Excel

Analytic Solver Basic is what you experience in a 15-day free trial, and it is the basis for all Analytic Solver upgrade products.  You get access to every feature for Optimization, Simulation and Data Mining. Then you can keep access to every feature, for as long as you like, for a very low annual subscription price (just US $250!) At any time, you can do "Test Runs" that show how your model will run with an upgraded version -- and with a few mouse clicks, you can easily upgrade to Analytic Solver Optimization, Analytic Solver Simulation, Analytic Solver Data Mining, or (for extra savings) Analytic Solver Comprehensive, and pay for greater model and data size and speed, in only the areas you need.

Solver SDK Pro

Professional Optimization and Simulation for Developers

What if you want to build optimization or simulation into a custom application? Until now, your choices have been to write your own code or try using open source libraries with limited or no support, or spend up to ten thousand dollars for a powerful optimizer with its own specialized APIs (usually without any simulation capabilities). Solver SDK Pro offers a better alternative: A far less expensive way to get started with a supported, professional grade product, with unlimited expansion potential – all the way up to the largest Monte Carlo simulation models running on compute clusters, and LP/MIP optimization models with millions of decision variables.

Solver SDK Pro’s modern object-oriented API is fully compatible with its “big brother”, Solver SDK Platform, and with the VBA object models in our Excel products. And it has rich support, with scores of example programs, in C/C++, C#, Java, R, Python, MATLAB, Visual Basic and VB.NET.
