Dell Statistica version 13.1 unveiled


Dell announced new version of its Statistica advanced analytics platform, Dell Statistica version 13.1.

This latest version delivers a host of capabilities designed to empower citizen data scientists, help organizations better address growing IoT analytics requirements, and better leverage increasingly heterogeneous data environments.

New features include functionality to help citizen data scientists prepare structured and unstructured data, the ability to deploy analytics on devices and gateways anywhere in the world for edge scoring.

It also includes extension of in-database analytics capabilities to platforms such as Apache Hive, MySQL, Oracle, and Teradata.

Dell noted that advanced analytics is gaining traction. According to Gartner, “by 2018, more than half of large organizations globally will compete using advanced analytics and proprietary algorithms, causing the disruption of entire industries’.

Gartner also predicts that by 2020, “predictive and prescriptive analytics will attract 40 percent of enterprises’ net new investment in business intelligence and analyticsi.”

With the latest enhancements to Dell Statistica 13.1, companies can better cope with the worldwide shortage of traditional data scientists, manage the complexities of modern IoT environments, and address the proliferation of new data sources and data types.

John K. Thompson, general manager, Dell Statistica noted that the two greatest challenges organizations face with respect to analytics are the explosive growth of IoT infrastructures and the dangerous worldwide shortage of data scientists.

“With the latest release of Dell Statistica, we’ve moved aggressively to help customers address both of those challenges. We’ve rapidly evolved Statistica from a solution that meets the needs of traditional data scientists into one that now also meets the needs of everyday citizen data scientists.”
