SEATTLE -- Insightful Corporation (NASDAQ: IFUL), a leading provider of predictive analytics and reporting solutions, announced on Tuesday the immediate availability of S-PLUS® 8 Enterprise Server, the latest release of Insightful’s software platform for statistical data analysis and predictive analytics.

S-PLUS 8 Enterprise Server provides organizations with the ability to deploy predictive analytics across the enterprise for improved communication and decision-making. Insightful delivers the knowledge to act immediately and decisively, assisting customers in improving operations and enhancing their competitive advantage.


  • Greater Scalability: The server architecture allows for robust and efficient processing of analytic jobs including load balancing across server clusters.  Synchronous and asynchronous access, queuing and scheduling of jobs provides greater flexibility for better performance during peak processing times.  Support for 64 bit platforms and out-of-memory processing allow for greater volumes of data to be analyzed faster than with previous versions.
  • Improved Security: Single sign-on or pass through authentication through either LDAP or Microsoft® Active Directory® is supported.  Encryption is supported through HTTPS or SSL protocols.
  • Compliance with IT Standards: Integration and extension of the server is supported through a Services Oriented Architecture including documented C#, .Net, Java, JavaScript, HTTP/URL API’s and rich client examples.


S-PLUS 8 Enterprise Server is specifically designed to support the enterprise wide deployment and integration of analytic applications and reporting.  The key benefits provided to customers are:

  • Improved communication: Results and measurements can be presented in easy-to-understand graphic displays.  Decision makers get all of the information they need in an easy-to-understand format for full comprehension of the data being analyzed.
  • Timely, fact-based decisions: Rapid response to queries and desktop delivery of results through a web-based portal or custom rich client integration provides decision makers fast and statistically rigorous results upon which to make vital choices for the health of their business.
  • Low total cost of ownership: Perpetual licensing coupled with support for popular IT deployment standards make maintenance of the S-PLUS 8 Enterprise Server a much more cost effective alternative to competitive systems.


S-PLUS 8 Enterprise Server is available today for the following server environments:

  • 32 Bit: Windows, Solaris 8/9/10
  • 32 Bit & 64 Bit: Red Hat Linux 3,4, SUSE Linux 10
  • In addition, 64 Bit: HP-UX 11i. IBM AIX 5.x will be available later this year.

“We are very pleased to announce the release of S-PLUS 8 Enterprise Server,” said Jeff Coombs, CEO of Insightful.  “We are committed to a process of continuous improvement in performance and reliability of our production platform in support of our customers’ enterprise deployment of predictive analytics and reporting applications.”
