Analytica Cloud Platform or ACP lets you share and run Analytica models via a web browser, running on a web server. Analytica Cloud Platform release 3.0, or ACP3, is a complete rewrite of ACP, using modern technologies including html5., React JS, and websockets to replace Adobe Flash and other technologies used in previous versions.

Lumina released ACP3 beta on December 14, 2020. Like the previous version, ACP1, it contains almost all features of desktop Analytica (DTA) for viewing and running a model in Browse mode, including changing user inputs, viewing influence diagrams, tables, and graphs.

ACP3 even supports some features of DTA that were not supported by ACP1, for example, MultiChoice() that lets a user select multiple options from a pulldown menu.

If showDialog=False it looks for the file in the same ACP directory as the model. If showDialog=True, it prompts the user for a file on their desktop to computer to read into the model. It also supports ReadFromURL(), ReadImageFile(), ReadBinaryFile() and ((ReadExportFile]](). However, it does not yet support any other functions that write to a file, including
