Conundra are intricate and difficult problems with an unexpected solution. One of the most famous Conundra is the Monty Hall problem, where a counterintuitive approach renders the best result.

ibm-partner-conundra.pngWe have been creating successful solutions for more than 10 years with IBM ILOG optimization software, a strong mathematical programming engine. During this time we have been working very closely with the IBM ILOG developers and creative minds on a global level. There is a very strong bond with the IBM ILOG ODME & CPLEX experts in France, where ILOG was founded.

It’s a perfect marriage: IBM has the strongest mathematical programming engines, and Conundra has the experienced and bright experts to deliver results in distribution optimization. Together, Conundra and IBM form a strong team: 1+1=3.
