Dell today announced the Dell Statistica Free Academic Program, a free version of its award-winning Statistica advanced analytics software now available to all U.S. college students and professors, to help boost interest in and preparedness for data analytics careers.
Recognizing the nationwide shortage of data scientists and other professionals with data analytics skills, and the increasing importance of employees with analytical skills in our data-driven economy, Dell has made its advanced analytics software free for all U.S. college students and professors through the Dell Statistica Free Academic Program.
The solution does not require coding and integrates seamlessly with open source R. Dell Statistica delivers a full range of advanced and predictive analytics tools that help organizations predict future trends, identify new customers and sales opportunities, forecast industry shifts, explore “what-if” scenarios, and reduce the occurrence of fraud and other business risks.
The Dell Statistica Free Academic Program provides college students with free access to advanced analytics technology as a well as a host of support materials, including a free online statistics textbook, how-to-videos, and access to a growing base of collegiate and professional users in the broader STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) community. The free offering also applies to all college and university professors, enabling them to make hands-on practicum a more relevant part of their curriculum, and to aid in their own research endeavors.
