Salford Predictive Modeler

Machine Learning and Predictive Analysis

New in SPM 8.3

Minitab's Integrated Suite of Machine Learning Software is called Salford Predictive Modeler®  (SPM).
The Salford Predictive Modeler®  (SPM) software suite is a highly accurate and ultra-fast platform for developing predictive, descriptive, and analytical models for machine learning, predictive analysis and predictive maintenance. SPM includes the CART®, MARS®, TreeNet®, Random Forests® engines, as well as powerful new automation and modeling capabilities not found elsewhere.

SPM have accumulated numerous data mining awards since August 2000 and continue to garner new honors and awards each year.

With Data Mining and Automation to Faster Results

SPM's data mining technologies span classification, regression, survival analysis, missing value analysis, data binning and clustering/segmentation. SPM algorithms are considered to be essential in sophisticated data science circles.

SPM's automation accelerates the process of model building by conducting substantial portions of the model exploration and refinement process for the analyst. While the analyst is always in full control we optionally anticipate the analysts' next best steps and package a complete set of results from alternative modeling strategies for easy review.

SPM Key Features

  • Sophisticated Algorithms for masssive datasets: Regression, Classification, and Logistic Regression exclusively designed to support massive datasets.
