CARY, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

JMP statistical discovery software from SAS is now certified by the Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI), the core enterprise network for Navy and Marine Corps forces in the continental US and Hawaii. Because NMCI maintains extremely high security for both classified and unclassified environments, certification involves rigorous testing to ensure that software meets strict operating and interoperability guidelines.

The certification means the Navy and Marine Corps can license JMP 9 with full, secure access for all end users. With the software's data visualization features, sailors and Marines can:

  • Display sophisticated analytic results via interactive graphics.
  • Optimize and simulate using Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.
  • Use maps to find patterns in geographic data.
  • Mine and model data with accuracy and flexibility.

“NMCI certification is a crucial step in our mission to provide quality analytics to the armed forces,” says Hope Walker, JMP Federal Government Program Manager at SAS, the leader in business analytics. “This stamp of approval will put data visualization into the hands of those who serve our country every day, helping them make data-driven decisions at sea and in the field.”

About NMCI

The Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) is the Department of the Navy's (DON) shore-based enterprise network in the continental United States and Hawaii, providing a single integrated, secure information technology (IT) environment for reliable, stable information transfer. NMCI represents about 70 percent of all DON IT operations and is second only to the Internet in size. NMCI revolutionized the way the DON does business in both classified and unclassified environments. It brought standardization to network operations, data security, technical support and real-time communications across every level of the Navy and Marine Corps by establishing common hardware, software and operating systems. As a result, the DON achieved increased productivity, greater interoperability and enhanced Information Assurance (IA) security.
