Anderson, CEO of OdinText. “We are honored to be recognized by CASRO, an organization that has such a long history of championing innovative and sound research techniques.”
In addition to exploring patterns in the data and allowing users to confirm hypothesis, OdinText suggests key relationships in the data that may be overlooked by the user. The software also allows for one-step simulation and predictive analytics.
