Helping You Explore Data Since 1986!
Data Description is a software and development company dedicated to twin enterprises: data analysis
exploration and statistics education.
Back in 1986, statistics packages were used to perform tests and fit models. But they didn't support
exploration. It was hard to make a small correction to your data or your model and see the
consequences. And hard to discover that errant case to correct.
Data Desk was designed as a data analysis companion that encourages exploration to help you discover
both patterns and the points that don't fit. The idea driving this, and what distinguishes Data
Desk, is that seeing is understanding. Anyone who needs to gain actionable insight from raw data
will do that faster, more accurately, and more effectively if he or she can see the patterns in
their data and explore the relationships among them. We are the leading developer of software tools
for interactive data visualization and exploration, and an application development environment for
customizing, extending and integrating these tools.
For 30 years we've been proud to say "Nobody Does It Like This!!"
