Technology Tutorial: How to deploy your ML and optimization models to empower non-technical business users
Presented by: Jim Williams
Date: Monday April 16, 1:50-2:40pm


You have a team with a great analytics background. They have developed advanced analytical tools using Python, R, or with your current optimization solver. They have derived crucial insights from your data, and they’ve figured out how your decisions shape your customers’ behaviors. Now it’s time to put these
critical analytical insights into the hands of your non-technical business users.

In this tutorial, we will cover how
FICO Xpress Optimization (including Xpress Mosel, Xpress Workbench,
and Xpress Insight) make it possible to embed your analytic models into business user-friendly applications. Learn how you can supercharge your analytic models with simulation, optimization, reporting, what-if analysis, and agile extensibility.

FICO is also a proud sponsor of the Honors Reception on Monday April 16th at 6pm as well as the 2018 Edelman Award Ceremony & Banquet at 7pm the same day. Make sure you stop by our booth #36 and #37 where you can win a mini-drone, Amazon gift cards and other prizes!
