Spotfire Inc. has overhauled its DecisionSite analytics software to aid manufacturers in dissecting their product development process.

DecisionSite 7.0, released last month, connects a broad range of data sources across research and development, production, distribution, marketing, and sales units through a single GUI.

Analysts can continuously interact with the data, online or offline, to perform what Spotfire calls "nonstop what-iffing." In support of Version 7.0, Spotfire, of Somerville, Mass., also shipped an upgrade to its Statistics application, which provides a library of dynamic statistics and data mining tools that can integrate with tools from other analytics software developers.

DecisionSite 7.0 is sold on a subscription basis, with pilot projects costing $25,000 to $50,000.
