History & Success of Statsoft and Statistica
Statsoft SA (Pty) Ltd. was founded in 2002, after a management buyout from Inala Technology Investments, where Statistica products were represented from 1993 and a local franchise for Statsoft registered in 1997. Statistica has been commercially available since 1984 and is now one of the largest advanced analytics software platforms available worldwide, being classed as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for advanced analytics. Statistica is represented worldwide by subsidiaries in all major markets with 33 full-service offices, on all continents, and its software is available in Chinese, Czech, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Russian, and other languages. The Statistica product line and its cutting edge, enterprise-wide, scalable, fully Web-enabled, distributed processing systems are utilised across a wide variety of industries and applications by leading global corporations in such areas as manufacturing, semiconductors, pharmaceutical, chemical, petrochemical, food processing, automotive, heavy equipment, banking, insurance, telecommunications, R&D, and others. Statistica is widely used as an integral, crucial component of corporate computer infrastructures to boost productivity, and the bottom line, and to increase safety. It is used in mission critical manufacturing applications, in regulated FDA controlled industries (also to help achieve compliance with CFR Part 11 and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) regulations) and as a foundation of corporate wide Six Sigma initiatives. Statistica has achieved an unprecedented record of recognition from both users and expert reviewers, since its first Windows release in 1993, being ranked the highest in every review by an independent third party.
