SAS Institute's NT-based Enterprise Miner software has been made available for Sun Solaris, with other Unix versions to follow - HP-UX July, AIX in August, and Digital Unix later in the fourth quarter.
New to the Unix version is a technique called DMINE that automates the selection of variables to be included in data-modelling processes.
Available since April on Windows NT, Enterprise Miner offers different algorithms in one package, including decision trees, clustering, neural networks, data-mining regression, and associations.
Its Process Flow Diagram feature is a drag-and-drop interface to automate data-mining processes, and the interface is designed to accommodate both business and quantitative analysts. Server-based pricing starts at $80,000 for a five-client licence.
