Allow a user to re-open reports which took a long time to run, or reports created with random components (like bootstrapping or k fold validation), without re-running those analyses. This way:
If a user doesn't export every possible column formula from that platform, they have an option to go back to the original analysis and create them later without having to replace all previously exported columns
It is possible to save the current 'session' in JMP without having started within a project.
Identical analyses can be viewed by multiple users without having specified a random seed prior to running the analysis, or when using platforms that utilize multi-threading
Users do not need to wait for long-running reports to re-rerun, and they can view reports that ran on much larger computers and cannot be recreated on their machine.
