Dell Software Group Announces the Next Major Release of its Advanced Analytics Platform, Dell Statistica 13.2

Dell Software Group announced the next major release of its advanced analytics platform, Dell Statistica 13.2. The latest release of Statistica helps companies transform their businesses and achieve new levels of success by embedding analytics everywhere and empowering a wider community of users and use cases. Key features include new collective intelligence capabilities to enable native integration with open source and application marketplaces, a new user interface designed to mask complexity and simplify workflows for citizen data scientists, and the ability to distribute data preparation and analytic workflows to any edge device or gateway. As advanced analytics gain increased traction as the primary vehicle through which organizations drive innovation, predict customer behavior, and optimize business and manufacturing processes, Statistica continues to build momentum. The latest release of Statistica leverages the power of the global analytics community through new collective intelligence capabilities that enable users to connect directly with analytics marketplaces, public datasets, and non-proprietary, standard scripting languages. To help address the global shortage of data scientists capable of building analytical models, a growing number of analytics experts are now sharing their models via online marketplaces and platforms. With Statistica 13.2, technical and non-technical users alike can now access via inbuilt nodes many of these pre-built models and integrate these into their existing Statistica workflow. This enables them to leverage a wider range of models without having to code and built them manually, while doing so within the validated and controlled framework Statistica provides. Online marketplaces accessible to Statistica 13.2 users include Apervita; Algorithmia, and H20 Sparkling Water for Spark on Hadoop, an open source math and machine learning platform that enables users to access public datasets such as Amazon Public Data Sets. This compliments the Azure ML node released in version 13.1, which enables users to push analytics to the cloud, and adds significant machine learning, deep learning, and big data capabilities to the platform. With the majority of analytics initiatives now driven by the citizen data scientist, Statistica 13.2 delivers a series of new features specifically designed to simplify analytics for the non-technical user, including a new citizen data scientist UI. This purpose-built, designer-view interface completely masks the complexity behind data preparation requirements and the analytic workflows within which users work, enabling non-technical business users to drive analytics initiatives without requiring them to code or program. The new release also features the ability to export Statistica objects so that non-technical users can edit them in Excel before importing them back into Statistica. This new complexity-masking functionality builds on the streamlined data preparation tools and reusable workspace templates introduced in version 13.1, and continues Statistica’s rapid evolution from a solution ideal for statisticians and mathematicians, to one accessible for all users across the organization, including both traditional and citizen data scientists. Dell Statistica 13.2 is available now worldwide.
