Spotfire and Insightful to Join Applications for Business Data Analysis

NEW YORK, June 6 (GenomeWeb News) - Spotfire and Insightful will integrate parts of their respective statistical and visual analytics software to analyze business data, the companies said today.


Under the agreement, Spotfire has licensed Insightful's embeddable S-Plus OEM toolkit and plans to integrate certain S-Plus routines and libraries with its DecisionSite visual analytic application in order to create products to extract more information from customers' business data.


Both Insightful's S-Plus statistical analysis software and Spotfire's DecisionSite visual data analytics product also have applications in the life sciences.
