Description

Just as Gutenberg’s printing press triggered the era of mass communication by enabling the widespread, rapid circulation of information to the masses, Statistica is now putting advanced analytics in the hands of today’s business professionals in a way that is approachable, scalable, localized yet universal. Previously, data scientists and specially trained analysts were isolated purveyors of analytics technology. Now, professionals with even continuous analytic needs can create repeatable workflows and models themselves, quickly and intuitively, using GUIs that can incorporate multiple coding languages. Statistica allows for the most productive marriage of the data scientist and business professional skill sets.

In this demo webcast, Shawn Rogers and Dr. Scott Burk revisit the analytics trends that have shaped the evolution of Statistica’s unique analytics methodology. And, for you hands-on practitioners, we also demonstrate how easily Statistica can foster the creation of actionable results in three key areas.

Demonstrations will include:

  • Point-and-click data sourcing, assessment and preparation; rich technical support, examples, tutorials and other resources
  • Integration of open source (R/Python/H2O Sparkling Water) and other analytic tools, and the ability to create enterprise-specific libraries for greater results
  • ”Parameterized Workspaces” which allow data scientists or sophisticated users to create controlled workflows that can be added to libraries for use by business analysts (e.g., what Gartner calls “citizen data scientists”)
