DoD uses AIMMS-based models to boost cybersecurity efforts

AIMMS, a vendor of prescriptive analytics software, recently announced that the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has chosen AIMMS’ innovative modeling environment to perform sophisticated cybersecurity analyses. The DoD’s Cyber and Business Systems Division (C3CB) will leverage AIMMS to solve large-scale optimization problems.
C3CB has already developed a prototype optimization model and seeks to use AIMMS as a long-term modeling and analytics solution. As described in the DoD’s documentation, there was an extensive analysis done to obtain “the right software to meet the needs at the lowest cost and time to the government.”

The DoD has chosen AIMMS due to the flexibility of the software, its advanced modeling features and its ability to handle a wide range of problem types. The models C3CB will develop are very complex and require a high-end, powerful and comprehensive technology. AIMMS, which is equipped with the CPLEX Solver, will enable them to speed up development times while supporting stochastic and robust optimization, as well as advanced simulations. Other benefits that drove their decision included the ability to read Microsoft Excel and Access files, easily manipulating data without the need to re-import it, and seamlessly creating user interfaces and visualizations to interpret analytics results.

Said AIMMS North America V.P. Chris Gordon: “Anticipating and effectively responding to cyber threats is of utmost importance for the public and private sector today. We are pleased to assist the U.S. Department of Defense in their efforts to improve cybersecurity.”

Does negative political advertising actually work?

While many potential voters dread campaign season because of pervasive negative political advertising, a new study has found that negative political advertising actually works, but perhaps not in the way that many may assume. The study “A Border Strategy Analysis of Ad Source and Message Tone in Senatorial Campaigns,” which will be published in the June edition of INFORMS’ journal Marketing Science, is co-authored by Yanwen Wang of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Michael Lewis of Emory University in Atlanta and David A.

Meet Summit, world’s most powerful, smartest scientific supercomputer

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory on June 8 unveiled Summit as the world’s most powerful and smartest scientific supercomputer. With a peak performance of 200,000 trillion calculations per second – or 200 petaflops – Summit will be eight times more powerful than ORNL’s previous top-ranked system, Titan. For certain scientific applications, Summit will also be capable of more than three billion billion mixed precision calculations per second, or 3.3 exaops. Read more →

Employee engagement a top concern affecting customer experience

Employee engagement has surfaced as a major concern in delivering improvements in customer experience (CX), with 86 percent of CX executives in a Gartner, Inc. survey ranking it as having an equal or greater impact than other factors such as project management and data skills. “CX is a people issue,” says Olive Huang, research vice president at Gartner. “In some instances, the best technology investments have been derailed by employee factors, such as a lack of training or incentives, low morale or commitment, and poor communication of goals."
