Spotfire also said today that it would add to its DecisionSite software a chemical data managing application produced by the New Jersey software company DeltaSoft.


That application, called ChemCart, provides support for a range of chemcial data cartridges that can be used to search Oracle databases for molecular chemical structure data. This software adds chemical cartridge capability to Spotfire's data analysis capabilities.
