Minitab 20.4

Predict. Visualize, analyze and harness the power of your data to solve your toughest challenges and eliminate mistakes before they happen. Data is everywhere these days, but are you truly taking advantage of yours?

Minitab Statistical Software can look at current and past data to find trends and predict patterns, uncover hidden relationships between variables, visualize data interactions and identify important factors to answer even the most challenging of questions. Visualizations are good, but pair them with analytics to make them great. With the power of statistics and data analysis on your side, the possibilities are endless.Discover
Regardless of statistical background, Minitab can empower all parts of an organization to predict better outcomes, design better products and improve processes to generate higher revenues and reduce costs. Only Minitab offers a unique, integrated approach by providing software and services that drive business excellence now from anywhere thanks to the cloud. Key statistical tests include t tests, one and two proportions, normality test, chi-square and equivalence tests.

Access modern data analysis and explore your data even further with our advanced analytics and open source integration. Skillfully predict, compare alternatives and forecast your business with ease using our revolutionary predictive analytics techniques. Use classical methods in Minitab Statistical Software, integrate with open-source languages R or Python, or boost your capabilities further with machine learning algorithms like Classification and Regression Trees (CART®) or TreeNet® and Random Forests®, now available in Minitab’s Predictive Analytics Module.

Seeing is believing. Visualizations can help communicate your findings and achievements through correlograms, binned scatterplots, bubble plots, boxplots, dotplots, histograms, heatmaps, parallel plots, time series plots and more. Graphs seamlessly update as data changes and our cloud-enabled web app allows for secure analysis sharing with lightning speed.
