Compare Analytica Editions

The Analytica product line offers a full range of Editions to meet the needs of different users and applications. Scroll down for more information on each version.

  • All Editions run on Windows computers, including Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, and Window Server 2012 and later. Each Edition needs at least 1 GB RAM. We recommend 3 or 4 GB RAM to run large models.
  • Analytica also runs on Macintosh using Windows in VMWare, Parallels, or another virtual machine.

Huge Arrays up to 100 million elements​

Array dimensions, including Run index for Monte Carlo sampling, limited only by available memory

Hide and encrypt sensitive data and algorithms.​

Save models and encrypt definitions that contain sensitive or proprietary data or algorithms.

Find optimal decision strategies with linear and nonlinear solvers.

Easily formulate problems with decision variables, objectives, and constraints, and apply linear or nonlinear solvers to find optimal solutions. You can also plug-in some of the most powerful solvers available, such as Optquest, Gurobi, and Knitro.

Access via web browser

You can write your own web UI to work with ADE

Application Programming Interface (API)

A COM API that lets other applications run Analytica models, compute results, and even modify the model. This lets other applications use Analytica as a powerful analytics engine, or provide a custom user interface.

Analytica Free Edition

Analytica Free Edition gives you the full features of Analytica Professional. You can build models with up to 101 variables and other objects – and it costs nothing! You can also use it to run larger models with more than 101 objects. You can review these larger models in Browse mode (including those made from a higher edition), and can change inputs and generate results, but not edit formulas or add objects. Free download

Analytica Professional

Analytica Professional offers full Analytica functionality, including the capacity to create models with any number of variables and other user-defined objects, as well as edit and save models. Your model can read from and write to Excel spreadsheets and databases. Order here

Analytica Enterprise

Analytica Enterprise offers all the functionality of Analytica Professional, plus Enterprise can use Huge Arrays (up to 100 million elements per Index dimension), apply the Profiler to see computational effort by variable, create Browse-only models, and encrypt confidential model elements. Order here

Analytica Optimizer

Analytica Optimizer finds optimal decision strategies subject to constraints and solves simultaneous equations. It provides powerful solvers to discover the decisions that maximize expected value, minimize cost, or optimize any quantified objective. It offers linear programming (LP), quadratic programs, mixed integer programs (MIP), and non-linear programming, with smooth or discontinuous functions. Analytica’s structured optimization makes it easy to formulate problems and it automatically chooses the best solver engine. End users can run models with the Power Player, ADE, or Analytica Cloud Platform with the Optimizer option (see below). Order here

Analytica Cloud Platform (ACP)

Analytica Cloud Platform (ACP) lets users interact with models via a web browser. It provides a similar user interface to Analytica Power Player with several enhancements. Users can view models, including influence diagrams, change inputs, and view result tables and graphs. Users can log in and save their own versions of models. To create an ACP application, you create the model with Analytica on the desktop, and then upload it to a server with a couple of clicks. ACP provides a way for users to share, review, and run models. It also lets you rapidly create analytic cloud applications harnessing the full power of Analytica. Order here

All Analytica users with active Analytica support can share their models on ACP at no cost for up to 25 sessions per month. You can also buy a Group Plan (Basic or Premium) that lets multiple users upload, review, and run models in shared project directories. ACP licenses can also be purchased to run on your organization’s servers.
