BEAVERTON, Ore. – January 9, 2023 – Gurobi Optimization, LLC, the leader in decision intelligence technology, recently announced the release of its popular mathematical optimization product, Gurobi Optimizer 10.0. Following the release, customers have reported that the new version is already helping them harness the power of mathematical optimization and prescriptive analytics in new ways.

In particular, customers are talking about the new gurobipy-pandas convenience wrapper for building optimization models from pandas data. This open-source project makes it easy and efficient for pandas users to build mathematical models from data stored in DataFrames and Series, and to read solutions back directly as pandas objects.

“The release of a pandas API and native MLflow API is a game changer,” said Yash Puranik, Principal Data Scientist at Aimpoint Digital, a Gurobi partner that helps clients solve complex business problems like production scheduling, employee rostering, inventory optimization, and demand allocation in logistics, manufacturing, supply chain, and related industries.

“Many of our clients require comprehensive models that combine the power of machine learning/forecasting methods with optimization for applications such as inventory management and supply chain optimization,” he explained. “Natively integrating Gurobi with the data processing power of Python/pandas and machine learning model-based predictions helps us develop more efficient and robust solutions for our clients.”

In addition to this new model-building feature, Gurobi 10.0 includes the ability to solve even more real-world business problems, even faster and easier than before.

  • Blazing-Fast Speed: The Gurobi R&D team has achieved a more than 75x speed-up on MIP models since version 1.1 and a more than 70x speed-up on non-convex MIQCP models since version 9.0.
  • Enterprise Development and Deployment Experience: To make Gurobi Optimizer even more accessible and easy to use, the team has integrated new tools for model development, monitoring, and advanced diagnosis, including significant enhancements to the matrix-friendly API in gurobipy, an expanded Web License Service (WLS), and new monitoring capabilities for both the Cluster Manager and WLS.
