Want to Learn How to Master the Optimization Tool in Alteryx?
Join this 1-hour webinar with John Emery to learn how to best use the Optimization Tool in Alteryx to uncover powerful predictive analytics via optimal solution calculations.
About the Webinar:
Have you ever wanted to find the most efficient driving or shipping route with a time constraint? Or perhaps how to best utilize your storage space? Maybe you want to figure out the ideal way to fill a package without going over a costly weight limit? Better yet, do you want to maximize the value of your fantasy football team?
Optimization is an essential practice across many industries, especially for supply chain, transportation, financial services, retail, telecommunications, energy, and sports.
That is why we’re devoting a 1-hour intensive webinar to outlining the powerful capabilities of the Optimization Tool in Alteryx, which enables users to garner incredible predictive insights.
Regarded as one of the most powerful predictive tools in Alteryx, the Optimization Tool solves linear programming (LP), mixed-integer linear programming (MILP), and quadratic programming (QP) optimization problems using matrix, manual, and file input modes.
During this comprehensive Alteryx power hour, you will learn precisely how to:
- Structure your data for use with Alteryx's Optimization tool
- Understand the differences between linear, mixed integer, and quadratic programming optimization problems
- Parse the output for use in further data analysis
- Find optimal solutions to allocation, portfolio, staffing, network, and logistics problems
