by STATISTICA on Wednesday, October 19, 2011 5:05 PM



Rexer AnalyticsAt the 2011 Predictive Analytics World conference in New York City (October 19), Rexer Analytics announced the highlights of their fifth annual survey of data miners (the largest survey of this kind in the industry).  1,319 data miners from 60 countries responded to questions about analytic techniques and tools used in data mining practice, types of data analyzed, and challenges encountered. Several questions focused on which products available on the market are used by respondents as their “primary tool,” and what the level of satisfaction is with the software they use. 

  • STATISTICA is the primary data mining tool used by the people who responded to the survey, ranking highest overall, as well as in subgroups of "Corporate" data miners, "Consultant" data miners, and “Government/NGO” data miners (all the subgroups except “Academic” data miners).

  • STATISTICA was also mentioned as a popular interface to the R software package.

A full report will be released by Rexer Analytics.
