StatSoft has released version 12 of its high-performance predictive modelling and data analytics reporting platform, Statistica. The company says that it has responded to users’ feedback on the evolving business analytics landscape by enhancing or adding powerful new tools that will bring big data processing out of the tech room and into the boardroom. Among the new features is an enhanced visual user interface in the new Advanced Query Builder which means that novices and experienced users alike can write even complex SQL queries. In addition, the reinvented visual analytic workspace in Statistica Enterprise and Data Miner products provides a more intuitive user experience, with greater visual workflow and storage capabilities to help users understand and communicate their findings.
