Visual Modeler interface for CPLEX in DSX

In our current DSX offering we enable programmatic access with Python API for CPLEX engine to solve optimization problems. Leveraging this capability requires a user to have deep technical and programming skills. Iterating across scenarios with modified constraints or objectives requires modifying code. To open up this capability to extended user base with less technical skills we need to offer guided interfaces to visually build optimization models. Very similar to the support we have for ML models. The current Dumbledore Beta intends to enable only a subset of the optimization problems with its natural language interface. And the dashboard visualization requires editing/coding in Javascript for the dashboards. To enable business users the end-to-end tasks for  Optimization models should be supported with visual, guided interfaces. This will extend reach of DSX to address optimization scenarios as well.
