IBM CPLEX Optimization Studio

It is well suited for solving large-sized, mixed-integer, and integer programming problems. Now, the new version supports for Multi-Objective optimization along with some new algorithms such as Benders Decomposition. It is less appropriate for quadratic programming problems where the objective function is the product of multiple variables. However, it's very easy to code any problem.

SAP Predictive Analytics

It's a great tool to merge actual data analysis (which Lumira doesn't do that well) with visualization (which Lumira does well) - so it can be seen as Lumira for data analysts. However, a lot of the 'predictive' side is hidden/black box which can be frustrating for those analysts, so you could argue it is too complex for casual users, but too 'black box' for analysts.

SAP Predictive Analytics

  • It doesn't require you to have a Ph.D. to build models!
  • You can use it to address a very large and wide dataset without worrying about sampling.
  • Automation is in the product DNA. You can prepare your data, ingest it into the "Kernel", then get insights about what was found, decide to publish it and schedule scoring tasks or model refresh in the same product.

Cons

IBM CPLEX Optimization Studio

  • Data handling from different sources like Note Pad, etc.
  • Large size of MILP problems.
  • Various parameters to set.

SAP Predictive Analytics

  • Working with this software is very simple and enjoyable for me as [an] IT consultant and expert, but it is a bit complicated for novice users.
  • Some big data takes more time‌to load, which I think could be faster

Honestly, to say, I never contacted CPLEX but used its forum to know/clarify any issues I faced.

The documentation provides an explanation about what features are available but not necessarily what's happening behind the scenes. On the other side, the "community" has grown since the acquisition and most questions are properly addressed by SAP folks. Since the "product maintenance" mode announcement was made, there wasn't much new content published except on the Smart Predict side (which is built by the SAP Predictive Analytics team)

Alternatives Considered

IBM CPLEX Optimization Studio

Compared with MATLAB, CPLEX is a more user-friendly and simpler structure for writing models. This one also has a good return on investment.

SAP Predictive Analytics

We have typically used Spotfire for data analysis but decided to move to SAP Business Objects due to its innate connection with SAP. I found Lumira to be good for visualizations but it is not meant for data analysis. Therefore, we have introduced Predictive Analytics to see if it can fill that gap. So far, it's been far less intuitive than Spotfire to get started, and as far as I am aware so far, it does not bring many additional capabilities. I do, however, like that it utilizes the Lumira look/feel and integrates very well.

Return on Investment

IBM CPLEX Optimization Studio

  • Better for price.
  • Many model parameters/features.
  • No visualization.

SAP Predictive Analytics

  • Proper forecasting increases our credibility with partners and customers
  • Forecasting determines the amount of investment in each sector and reduces the cost of additional costs
