The Analytica Enterprise edition offers all the functionality of Analytica Professional, plus
- your model can read from and write to external data sources (e.g., databases, text or binary data files, web pages and internet data sources)
- Run and communicate with other applications
- use Huge Arrays (up to 100 million elements per Index dimension)
- apply the Performance Profiler to see computational effort by variable
- create Browse-only models
- encrypt (obfuscate) confidential model elements.
You need either Analytica Enterprise or Analytica Optimizer to create very large models or to integrate Analytica with external data sources and databases. You can use the Analytica Power Player or the AnalyticaDecision Engine to run models created with Analytica Enterprise or Optimizer with these features, and can change them using Analytica Decision Engine. You can use any edition of Analytica to run a model that uses buttons, or was saved as browse-only with hidden definitions.
You can order Analytica Enterprise here.
Analytica Enterprise, Optimizer, Power Player, and ADE (Analytica Decision Engine) can manage indexes and arrays of up to two billion elements in any dimension. The only practical limit on model sizes is the amount of memory. Huge Arrays means they can also handle sample size for probabilistic simulation up to this size. (You can set this in the Uncertainty Setup dialog from the Result menu.) This also lets you read in large datasets from databases, using the ODBC functions.
The Typescript window offers an old-fashioned command-line user interface, like the Windows CMD program or a Unix shell, showing a prompt — the title of the model or module — at the start of each line. You can type in a script command. It prints any results as text, and show another prompt. This window is occasionally useful for advanced users who wish to inspect internal details of a model. You can also use it to test out commands that you want to use in a button script.
To open the Typescript window, press the F12 key.
