SYSTAT is a versatile and comprehensive statistical software package. It employs a staggering range of powerful techniques to help conduct many types of research.
Novice statistical users can use SYSTAT’s menu-driven interface to conduct simple analyses and produce beautiful 2D and 3D graphics for presentations or reports.
Those in need of advanced analysis can use SYSTAT’s more sophisticated statistical routings, and create plots and charts that are instantly ready for publication. SYSTAT’s menu and command interfaces are interlinked, allowing users the option of whichever method works best for them.
SYSTAT 13 is quicker, sturdier and more robust than any of its predecessors. Newly improved data handling functionality allows the software to process larger data sets, at speeds faster than ever before. Also, with the introduction of SYSTAT 13 you now can have the Add-on SYSTAT Exact Tests for those working with small sample sizes.
What is SigmaPlot?
SigmaPlot is a software package to help researchers visualise their research data and create publication-ready graphs. Additionally, SigmaPlot can be used as an advisory statistics suite, which means advanced statistical analysis can be done without needing to learn complex syntax or programming. SigmaPlot guides users through every step of the analysis process, performing powerful statistical analysis without needing to be a statistical expert.
SigmaPlot has a user-friendly interface and is easy to learn
SigmaPlot includes over 100 2D and 3D graph types and templates, 50 statistical methods, and seamless integration with Microsoft Office. The user interface is familiar enough for experienced users but easy enough for novice users to understand, too. And with step-by-step wizards available as a resource for novice analysts, getting things done on SigmaPlot couldn’t be simpler.
Whether you’re looking to visualise your data quickly, create professional graphs, or advanced Statistical reports, SigmaPlot has you covered. Its step-by-step wizards make it easy for even non-technical users to create impressive results.
SigmaPlot helps you create publication-ready scientific graphs
With the new Graph Properties user interface, you can select the property category in the tree on the left and then change properties on the right. The change is immediately graphed, and if you move your cursor off the panel, then it becomes transparent, and you can see the effect of your changes without leaving the panel.
SigmaPlot offers the flexibility to customize every detail of your graph. You can add axis breaks, standard or asymmetric error bars and symbols, change colours, fonts, and line thickness. Double-click on any graph element to launch the Graph Properties dialogue box.
Modify your graph, chart or diagram further by pasting an equation, symbol, map, picture, illustration or another image into your presentation. And select anti-aliasing to display jaggy-free smooth lines that can be used in your PowerPoint® presentations.
Statistics and Data Analysis without the learning curve
SigmaPlot provides all the fundamental tools you need to analyze your data, from basic statistics to advanced mathematical calculations and statistical methods. Click the Statistics button to instantly generate summary statistics, including 95% and 99% confidence intervals. Run t-tests, linear regressions, non-linear regressions and ANOVA with ease. You can fit a curve or plot a function and get results reports in seconds. Use built-in transforms to massage your data and create a unique chart, diagram or figure. With SigmaPlot – it’s all so simple!
Use the Regression Wizard to fit data easily and accurately
Fitting your data is easy with the SigmaPlot Regression Wizard. The Regression Wizard automatically determines your initial parameters, writes a statistical report, saves your equation to your SigmaPlot Notebook, and adds your results to existing graphs or creates a new one!
The Regression Wizard accurately fits nearly any equation – piecewise continuous, multifunctional, weighted, Boolean functions and more – up to 10 variables and 25 parameters. You can even add your own curve fit equations and add them to the Regression Wizard.
Use the Dynamic Curve Fitter to analyse your data
The Dynamic Curve Fitter performs 200 or more curve fits using your equation and data starting from optimally different initial starting values. The results are ranked by the goodness of fit so that you can check the top-ranked results against the result you obtained from the Regression Wizard. There is always a concern that the correct solution has not been found. Dynamic fitting minimizes this concern. It is encouraged before publishing results, particularly if a complicated equation is used.

Heat Maps (New graph type macro)
Heat maps assist in visualizing variations in the density of values in the data table. Put another way, heat maps are used to identify clusters of data. The primary benefit of heat maps is that they make complicated data simpler to understand than the output of many other graphical or numerical techniques. One of the original applications of heat maps that is frequently used is to examine population density in a city or region.
Improved User Interface
The refreshed ribbons manager enhances the user experience providing the user with easy navigation across the various functions of SigmaPlot 15.
