JMP Marks a Milestone

JMP Celebrates 20 YearsThis October, JMP is celebrating its 20th anniversary. JMP software has been busy since its first release in 1989. It maintains an active presence in a variety of industries, helping customers succeed. JMP users have improved aerospace engineering designs, produced quality pharmaceuticals, protected coral reefs off the Florida coast, enhanced open-wheel racing, manufactured high-end guitar strings and bottled fine wine. That's a lot of action to pack into two decades. John Sall, Executive Vice President of SAS, and members of the JMP team worldwide say thank you to customers for making JMP a success.

Research Team Fights MS with JMP®

White PaperMultiple sclerosis (MS) is a complex autoimmune disease of the nervous system that can be difficult to diagnose. Although there is no known cure, treatment may return functions after an MS attack, prevent new attacks and prevent disability. Because current diagnostic procedures for MS are cumbersome, invasive and expensive, a non-invasive serum diagnostic test is desirable. Using JMP for design of experiments and data analysis, researchers at Bayhill Therapeutics and Applied Microarrays Inc. have taken a major step toward that goal. This white paper describes the project.

Students Find Common Ground with JMP®

For Arif Ansari, Assistant Professor at the USC Marshall School of Business, the interactive visualization capabilities of JMP make it the ideal platform for a meeting of minds - a stage on which scholars from distinctly different disciplines get an interdisciplinary perspective on data mining and analysis. Dr. Ansari uses JMP to teach applied statistics and data mining to MBA and computer science students, as well as to those with a strong statistical background. Additionally, he and the students use JMP in research projects for businesses.
