JMP is interactive, exploratory data analysis and modeling software for the desktop.
JMP makes data analysis—and the resulting discoveries—visual and helps communicate
those discoveries to others. JMP presents results both graphically and numerically. By
linking graphs to each other and to the data, JMP makes it easier to see the trends,
outliers, and other patterns that are hidden in your data.
Through interactive graphs that link statistics and data, JMP offers analyses from the
basic (univariate descriptive statistics, ANOVA, and regression) to the advanced
(generalized linear, mixed, and nonlinear models, data mining, and time series models).
A unified, visual approach makes these techniques available to all levels of users.
The JMP Scripting Language can be used to create interactive applications and to
communicate with SAS. JMP reads text files, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, SAS data
sets, and data from any ODBC data source.
JMP is included with SAS Visual BI, which can be ordered with SAS Enterprise BI
