Latest Version of JMP® Hits Desktops Worldwide

JMP 8 Is Here!JMP 8 for Windows has started shipping, and users are finding lots to love in the new version. (Macintosh and Linux users can expect versions for their operating systems in April 2009.) Topping the list of popular new features in JMP 8 is the Graph Builder, which lets you explore and visualize data by dragging and dropping variables onto a graph. You get instantaneous results as you create and refine your graphs.

The Choice platform is another hot feature in JMP 8 because you can design and analyze choice studies to find out consumers' preferences in products and services. Reliability analysis is more powerful than ever, with new platforms for Life Distribution, Fit Life By X and Competing Causes. You can now export the popular Bubble Plot and Profiler as Flash animations to use in your presentations and Web pages. JMP can handle international character sets with ease and multiple currency types in a single data table. If you're a SAS user, you'll also like that JMP 8 can connect to SAS 9.1.3 and SAS 9.2 and has a new SAS toolbar for quick access to SAS features.

JMP 8 LaunchWe're planning a JMP 8 launch party, and you're invited! Join the celebration online this Thursday, Dec. 4, as we mark the launch with a live Webcast from the Georgia Institute of Technology. SAS co-founder and Executive Vice President John Sall, the creator of JMP software, and Dimitri Mavris, Director of Georgia Tech's Aerospace Systems Design Laboratory, will host the 11 a.m. Webcast from the lab. Listen in as Sall highlights some of the new and exciting capabilities of JMP 8, including drag-and-drop graph creation and data exploration; design and analysis of choice experiments; reliability analysis; and export of Bubble Plots and Profilers as Flash animations. Hear Mavris discuss the innovative ways his team uses interactive analysis and data visualization to create the next generation of sophisticated engineering designs at the Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering. JMP fans will be watching the Webcast at events in several US cities, and you can join the party by viewing this presentation live from your desktop. We'll send you a limited-edition launch T-shirt when you register!
