Software architecture, design and integration of an optimization tool
— Technical decisions related to the development, architecture, and integration of software have a strong and lasting impact on its the costs, quality, and performance. Quantitative decision support modules have specific computing features that require heavy machine resources (RAM and CPU) and complex data management. As a result, their architects require specific skills.


• Introduce fundamental principles and good practices of HPC computation on distributed architecture.
Understand the inherent stakes and difficulties involved in the design and integration of a decision support software through practical examples.
Understand technologies used as well as their vocabulary.


Architects, project managers, or technical experts aiming to grasp the specificities of quantitative computational function-based solutions (optimization, simulation, statistical learning).
Decision support engineers aiming to expand their skills in computer science and software integration.
Any developers involved in working on complex IT development projects.


Artelys engineers specialized in the implementation of operational solutions for quantitative decision support and experts in IT and software design.
