I’m pleased to announce the following new features in DOcloud:
- DOcloud Python Client: Quickly and easily add the power of optimization to your Python applications. You focus on modeling your problem, and our Python client takes care of every step needed to solve your problem using the DOcloud service.
- DOcloud GitHub Catalog: Discover the new GitHub catalog where we will make available different prewritten samples to help you quickly develop your model or application. In particular, enjoy the DOcloud GreenTruck sample, a complete web application to optimize transportation shipments using a hub and spoke system.
- Excel support for OPL models: You can now use Excel workbooks to submit data to and retrieve results from DOcloud. For more details, visit our developer community.
- Warm start for CPLEX MIP problems: DOcloud users can now benefit from CPLEX warm start to solve their MIP problems more efficiently. To automatically enable warm start for your CPLEX MIP problem, simply drop a MIP start file (SOL or MST file) along with your other model files in DropSolve, or add it to your list of job attachments when using the DOcloud API.
For more details on each of these new features, follow our blog over the next few days!
