Embed analytics in SQL 2005

by Nikola Strahija on June 12th, 2005 SPSS, a provider of software for predictive analytics, has announced a version of its statistical analysis toolset that can be embedded into the next version of Microsoft SQL Server 2005.

SPSS's software, Statistical Services for Microsoft SQL Server 2005, will integrate into SQLs DSV (Data Source View), the analytical services component of SQL Server 2005.

Bob Blumstein, a research director at IDC, had many good words about the integration effort, saying that when analytics can be done without pulling the data out of the database, there is a gain in productivity and there are fewer chances for errors.

Jon Otterstatter, CTO of SPSS, said putting statistical analysis inside the database is going to make it easier for the administrators to access data for business analysts.

The integration also means that the results of analysis can be dropped directly into a Microsoft Sharepoint portal or into an Excel spreadsheet.
The SPSS Statistical Services is also accessible in Microsoft's BI and Visual Studio development environments, giving developers the ability to put predictive analytics into non-BI applications.

SPSS Statistical Services for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 will be available when Microsoft SQL Server 2005 ships at the end of the year.
