Cut Complexity: Leverage Skills You Already Have

Start in Excel, then blow past supposed "Excel Limits" and deploy to Servers and Cloud

Does "Analytics Success" have to mean Big Projects, with Big Data and Big Budgets? Not for our customers! Thousands of large and small companies have learned to leverage the skills they already have to get results faster, with less cost and risk.

Start by building sophisticated analytics models in Excel, that can scale up to millions of decisions. Deploy your models to run in Tableau, Power BI, or your own application. Prepare to be surprised by how much you can do - with your own team.

  • Access SQL databases and Apache Spark Big Data clusters - easily build data mining and machine learning models in Excel
  • Model and mitigate uncertainty with easy-to-use Monte Carlo simulation, decision trees and simulation optimization
  • Find optimal ways to allocate resources with full-spectrum Optimization: from linear programming to genetic algorithms
  • Easily move from Excel to Tableau and Power BI dashboards, or your own web and mobile apps with RASON® models and REST API

 

Bypass Barriers between Analysts and Developers

Analysts and Developers have a common language for model-building and deployment

Do your Analysts speak Excel, but your Developers speak C# and JavaScript? That's common, but it can raise costs and complexity when you deploy analytic models for use by many people in day-to-day operations.

Our solution: RASON® is a common language for models that includes the entire Excel formula language as a subset -- easy for analysts, yet is embedded in JSON -- easy for developers working on servers or web/mobile clients.

  • Build models and test in Excel with sample data, then easily turn them into RASON® web applications without programming
  • Easily run RASON models on a desktop PC, a company server, a web or mobile app using a REST API service
  • Use leading-edge machine learning algorithms, optimization solvers, and simulation methods from anywhere
  • Write your model once, write application code once: Analysts and developers can both make changes and improvements

 

Realize ROI: Big Savings on Small Investments

We've helped thousands of companies Realize ROI with an Optimization Model

Insights from analytics are nice. Saving serious money is better. That's what our customers achieve -- often saving millions on an investment of thousands.

How? They find ways to allocate resources -- money, staff time, inventory, vehicles -- more efficiently, with the aid of an optimization model.

This isn't some possible future benefit, way down the "road of analytics maturity." This is what we do every day -- helping companies like yours realize ROI quickly.

  • Leverage your business knowledge and Excel skills to allocate scarce resources optimally, maximizing profit or minimizing cost while meeting resource constraints.
  • Use every method: linear/integer programming, nonlinear and global optimization, genetic algorithms and more, solving the largest models with state-of-the-art solvers, all in Excel.
  • Go beyond standard optimization to incorporate uncertainty and solve using simulation optimization, stochastic programming, and robust optimization methods.
  • Use automated model diagnosis and infeasibility analysis, our Constraint Wizard, and Guided Mode plus expert tech support to build the right kind of model and get it working

 

Build Expertise with Analytics in Your Current Team

Use our Learning Resources to Build Analytics Expertise - While Getting Results

Does "Analytics Success" have to mean months spent finding and hiring expensive data science "unicorns," who need a year or more to learn your business -- before you see real business outcomes? Not at all.

Get better results by building analytics expertise in your current team of business analysts and developers. Use all the learning resources available for our software, while building real models and realizing ROI.

  • Start on "day one" with our 100+ example models, online Help, video tutorials, and live chat with support, right inside Excel
  • Leverage Excel skills, data you already have in Excel, and scores of data source connectors supported in Excel
  • Use the many MBA textbooks that use our software throughout to learn data mining, simulation and optimization methods.
  • Learn, take quizzes and earn certificates with our self-service courses in data mining, simulation and optimization at Solver.Academy
