Data Mining is the differentiator. Some have labelled the current period, appropriately, as
“The Age of Analytics,” a period in which the information age has led us to the application of
analytics to derive insights from these incredible sources of data.
At StatSoft, we have the opportunity to collaborate with, consult, and train colleagues in the areas of data analysis and predictive modelling in a variety of industries: automotive manufacturing, financial services, medical device manufacturing, pharmaceutical R&D and manufacturing, semiconductors, etc. What our experience has taught us is that, in a competitive economy, companies can focus on opportunities for utilizing advantages and streamlining. One category of opportunity is to leverage the data that your company has already collected and manages.
The STATISTICA Data Analysis and Data Mining Platform, including the STATISTICA Data Miner software, offers the most comprehensive and effective system of user-friendly tools for the entire data mining process – from querying databases to generating final reports. StatSoft’s data mining and predictive modelling software is available in single workstation, multiple-user (concurrent user licensing), and Enterprise editions.
