Scientific Computing, the leading information technology publication for the sciences, has just published a review of SYSTAT 13. The full review can be seen here:
The author, Dr. John Wass, writes in part:
Despite the power and depth in this version, the most impressive feature is the inherent simplicity. In the early versions the novice could easily get frustrated in deciphering what the dialog box was really asking for and feeding it the proper data types. This is to say nothing about approaching the level of sophistication required to fully understand the depth of the statistical results presented. Now everything seems so intuitive that as with many programs, the learning curve is tilted in favor of the novice (though it still requires some statistical understanding on the part of the analyst!).
While many programs containing the newer simulation and data mining software (SYSTAT 13 contains a highly efficient Classification & Regression Tree algorithm) come with astronomical price tags, this software is still quite reasonable. Interested readers are encouraged to download the 30-day trial, and the many intuitive operations should delight the novice.
Commenting on behalf of Systat Software, Marketing Manager Scott Fenstermaker said, “We would like to thank Scientific Computing for deciding to review SYSTAT 13. We would also like to thank Dr. John Wass for the time and effort that went into this very thorough review.”
Mr. Fenstermaker added, “We believe that SYSTAT 13 offers tremendous benefit to the readers of Scientific Computing. The Systat team is committed to offering scientists and researchers a cost-effective, reliable and hassle-free statistical software package.”
