STATISTICA Enterprise Small Business combines all the products from the STATISTICA family with the latest technologies for enterprise computing. STATISTICA Enterprise is an integrated multi-user software system that merges industry-standard database technologies with all the statistical and data mining analyses in STATISTICA. Reports can be configured in standard formats (HTML, PDF, Word).
This makes STATISTICA Enterprise Small Business a powerful tool for general purpose data analysis and business intelligence applications, as well as applications in manufacturing, research, marketing, and finance.
In business environments, STATISTICA Enterprise can be easily integrated into existing systems. And it can complement other software systems, such as ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software.
STATISTICA Enterprise Small Business Offers:
- Knowledge-sharing functionality that encourages collaboration among users
- State-of-the-art database connectivity options to access existing database management systems
- Analytic reporting tool
- Optionally process data from remote data servers "in place" (that is, without having to import data to a local storage device)
- Data filtering, automatic data monitoring and analysis, error detection and alarming
- Easy-to-use administration tools
Upgrade to STATISTICA Enterprise Server/QC if statistical process control/quality control are needed. It is designed for local and global enterprise quality control/improvement and Six Sigma applications. It includes a high performance database (or optimized interface to existing databases), real-time and remote monitoring and alarm notification for the production floor, a comprehensive set of analytical tools for engineers (all the functionality of STATISTICA QC Charts, Process Analysis, Design of Experiments, and much more) and reporting features for management, Six Sigma reporting options, and much more.
Upgrade to STATISTICA Enterprise Server for advanced analytics or big data solutions.
Knowledge-sharing functionality that encourages collaboration among users
Standard network versions of application programs typically have no (or very limited) support for the collaborative work of groups of users, and (with the exception of designated multi-user database management applications) usually have no support for central, multi-user repositories of data. The main advantages of standard network versions of application programs are:
- lower cost "per seat" compared to stand alone programs
- saving disk space (since only one copy of the application files resides on the network)
- ease of patching or upgrading to new versions (only one copy needs to be reinstalled or patched)
However, no file sharing or any other groupware/multi-user features are supported in such applications, and, for example, two users cannot work on the same file.
STATISTICA Enterprise users can share queries of any degree of complexity, allowing them to retrieve specific subsets of data from central repositories and share scripts of analyses that can be centrally updated. For example, predefined reports that can be centrally modified by supervisors analysts. The results of their work can be shared either in the local environments (by making them available to other users who enjoy the respective access privileges), or the global network (by publishing HTML reports on the Internet/Intranet).
Moreover, with the addition of the optional STATISTICA Enterprise Server functionality, users can benefit from the power of STATISTICA using virtually any computer in the world that is connected to the Internet.
State-of-the-art database connectivity options to access existing database management systems
Fully integrated with a suite of system administration tools, STATISTICA Enterprise provides an efficient general interface to enterprise-wide repositories of data. Data can be accessed via industry-standard database protocols such as OLE DB and ODBC. Or data historian repositories such as the PI Data Historian from OSI Soft, Inc, can be used.
STATISTICA Enterprise is organized around a central STATISTICA Enterprise configuration database that can be installed on any industry standard database management system. This includes all major scalable systems such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, etc. The installation of the STATISTICA Enterprise warehouse can be set up using a pre-defined database template (schema), so the deployment of the system is relatively simple.
This enterprise data interface function makes data easily accessible, and provides one of the important advantages of STATISTICA Enterprise. In addition, the comprehensive STATISTICA Enterprise security management system allows the administrators to assign specific access privileges to particular categories of users.
Analytic Report Generation
Report generation is an important component of the STATISTICA Enterprise architecture. You can use report configurations and report generation in STATISTICA Enterprise to create formatted documents (PDF, HTML, MS Word) and analysis summaries of any of the tabular and graphical results produced by STATISTICA.
STATISTICA Enterprise provides a graphical user interface for defining the layout of formatted documents, including the placement of graphs and tables, the contents and formatting of headers/footer, static and dynamic text elements, and any additional formatting elements specific to the document type. The results of the report template definition are saved as a STATISTICA Report template document. Importantly, these Report Templates are stored centrally, wrapped with user access control and security, in the STATISTICA Configurations Database, deployed on an industry-standard relational database management system (RDBMS). Reports may either be run on-demand or as batch, scheduled tasks.
Optionally process data from remote data servers "in place" (without having to import data to a local storage device)
STATISTICA Enterprise offers options to process data from remote databases "in place" without the need to import the data to the local storage device. This technology produces significant performance gains (compared to importing the data subsets before they can be processed). It also allows you to process datasets that are larger than the local storage device's capacity (e.g., terabytes of data).
Automatic data monitoring/analysis; analytic auto-responding; enterprise data broadcasting
In today's rapidly changing business world, success depends more than ever on a business' ability to quickly respond to the changing conditions. The reliance on comprehensive insight into the available data and the ability to quickly respond either directly or by performing appropriate, predefined analyses are no longer a luxury but a real necessity. The proactive data broadcasting and automated analysis functions available in STATISTICA Enterprise are the ideal complement to procedures found in ERP software.
STATISTICA Enterprise features powerful facilities to automatically react to user-defined conditions in data. These custom-defined conditions can be of practically any complexity and they can even represent results of on-line analyses performed by STATISTICA Enterprise in real-time on the incoming data stream or on sampled data.
These flexible facilities are built using StatSoft's real-time data monitoring technologies and they can be used in countless business or research applications. Facilities are provided to setup any STATISTICA Enterprise workstation as an automatic data monitor and/or processor, that will fetch or sample the appropriate data subsets from the STATISTICA Enterprise or other enterprise data warehouse, perform the predefined analyses and then respond appropriately. For example, when certain conditions are met (e.g., the price of a particular commodity reaches a certain threshold, certain inventory falls below a particular level, the number of complaints or registered defects compared to the moving average exceeds a preset tolerance level), then STATISTICA Enterprise will automatically execute a predefined action (e.g., send e-mail, send a fax, call a pager, or simply broadcast the relevant information or the result of analyses to selected members of the organization or nodes of the STATISTICA Enterprise installation).
Easy-to-use administration tools
Easy-to-use administration tools in STATISTICA Enterprise provide the power to define the specific permissions of users, the queries to external data sources, and the reports to be generated. Flexible tools allow you to customize the view that a user sees, organized by department, report type, etc. STATISTICA Enterprise is also centrally managed so that changes made to the system through the administration tools are immediately available on all workstations. The administration tools in STATISTICA Enterprise are similar to those available in STATISTICA Enterprise Server/QC.
