Switching to Gurobi from another solver

Have your optimization needs outgrown your optimization tools? Is your solver struggling to solve complex models? We’d like to invite you to an hour-long webinar in which you will learn about available commercial and open source solver options, how to recognize when time has come to switch to a leading solver like Gurobi, and how to best migrate your existing work into the new environment.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Common situations that tell you it is time to consider switching solvers
  • Factors to keep in mind when choosing a solver
  • How to start a new optimization project on a limited budget
  • Features and improved performance that comes with using Gurobi

Presenting this webinar is Dr. Sonja Mars, Support Team Manager at Gurobi Optimization.

Dr. Mars earned her PhD in Discrete Optimization from the Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and is focused on providing technical support, including assisting with the benchmarking and performance tuning of user models. Dr. Mars has helped hundreds of companies switch from open-source and commercial solvers to Gurobi. In addition, she contributes to the creation of additional online resources to help users get the most from Gurobi.
