STATISTICA is a comprehensive, integrated data analysis, graphics, database management, and custom application development system featuring a wide selection of basic and advanced analytic procedures for business, data mining, science, and engineering applications. It includes not only general purpose statistical, graphical, and analytic data management procedures, but also comprehensive implementations of specialized methods for data analysis. All analytic tools offered in the software line are available as part of an integrated package. These tools can be controlled through a selection of alternative user interfaces and a comprehensive, industry standard (Visual Basic-based) programming language. Interactive user interfaces can be easily customized and the language (STATISTICA Visual Basic) can be used to automate tasks of any complexity, from simple macros recorded to automate a routine operation, to advanced, large scale development projects (e.g., custom analytic extensions that integrate STATISTICA with other applications or with large, enterprise-wide, Internet or Intranet-wide computing environments).
