Share Your JMP Stories (or Videos) as JMP Turns 20
Oct 2, 2009 10:20 AM
The curious vintage junkie in me borrowed the 20-year-old JMP box that John Sall holds up in his 20th anniversary video.
The description of JMP on the back cover was a surprise. Why? That description still applies today, 20 years later:
• Classical statistics combined with today’s most interactive graphics.
• Data analysis with a visual difference for viewing among groups.
• One powerful platform.
• Multidimensional data views that make it easy to identify outliers.
• Designed for immediate productivity – no programs to write.
• Yours from SAS – the respected name in data analysis software.
True, the number of platforms, plots and analyses offered in JMP has grown to include Tabulate, Bubble Plots, a drag-and-drop Graph Builder, new reliability tools and more. And for nigh on 10 years, JMP has offered cutting-edge design of experiments approaches, both custom and textbook. JMP now runs on Windows and Linux in addition to Mac, and with every release JMP integrates better and more seamlessly with SAS.
Like anything vintage, JMP has touched and been touched by a host of people with stories to tell.
I invite you to share some of your stories about JMP. How has it helped you in your job? What ideas have you shared with us that are now built into JMP? What has held up over the years? What has made you smile or say, “aha”?
