Platform: Solaris
Category: Developer Tools > Programming

Programming environment


Improve efficiency, quickly implement strategies and increase profitability. ILOG CPLEX's mathematical optimization technology enables better decision-making for efficient resource utilization. With CPLEX, complex business problems can be represented as mathematical programming models. Advanced optimization algorithms allow you to rapidly find solutions to these models.

Today, over 1,000 corporations and government agencies use ILOG CPLEX, along with over 500 universities. CPLEX helps solve planning and scheduling problems in virtually every industry. More than 100 of the world's leading software companies are also CPLEX customers, including market leaders like SAP, Oracle and Sabre.

ILOG pioneered development of the algorithms needed to solve today's most demanding mathematical optimization problems. ILOG CPLEX has solved problems with millions of constraints and variables, and consistently sets new standards for mathematical programming software performance.


  • High performance
    ILOG CPLEX optimizers deliver the power needed to solve very large, real-world optimization problems, as well as the speed required by today's interactive applications. It's not just mathematical excellence that drives CPLEX performance. CPLEX combines multiple CPUs to divide the work at hand -- that's what we mean when we say Parallel CPLEX.
  • Fundamental algorithms
    ILOG CPLEX comes with the fastest, most reliable implementations of the fundamental algorithms for solving demanding mathematical optimization problems. CPLEX provides flexible, high-performance optimizers for solving linear programming, quadratic programming, quadratically constrained programming and mixed integer programming problems.
  • Robust and reliable
    A large installed base keeps making ILOG CPLEX even better. Every new feature is tested on the biggest, most diverse model library in the world.
  • Flexible interfaces
    ILOG CPLEX gives developers a variety of different ways to interact with it during the development and deployment of their applications.
    Only ILOG CPLEX provides the full range of functionality and flexibility that optimization applications require. CPLEX can be accessed from most programming environments and used on a wide variety of platforms, providing true portability.
