Meet Civis: Some of our Favorite Features of the Data Science Platform

August 6, 2015 Civis Analytics

Earlier this summer, [we announced]({% post_url 2015-06-30-Bigger-Cheaper-Faster-Data-in-the-Cloud %}) Civis — the data science platform. Our end-to-end, ready-to-use data science platform in the cloud enables organizations to make data-driven decisions. It’s what we use for our work, and we’re excited for it to be available for all organizations to use the platform with their data.

Many of you have been working with our team of data scientists, solving data science problems on your own and using Civis Console to view reports, share findings with your team, and put the power of your data to work. Civis is our next generation platform, that gives all users the ability to do the entire data science process from end-to-end in the cloud. You can unify your data into one one place, use matching algorithms to make use of all your data, make predictions with machine learning that lead to data-driven decisions.

While many of you are familiar with the power of our platform, we wanted to share some of our favorite features in Civis that weren’t available in Console.

  • New design: an intuitive interface opens the platform to users of more skill levels.
  • Visual reporting: this new feature enables data scientists to create quick visualizations during analysis — from bar graphs, to scatter plots, to maps. Because they’re built in D3, you can modify any visualization infinitely and make your own beautiful creations.
  • Step-by-step machine learning: the modeling workflow surfaces the controls data analysts need to apply excellent algorithms to their data, making predictive modeling more accessible and faster than ever.

For our current clients, we’re starting to upgrade you to the new platform — don’t worry; it’s a quick and easy process — and you’ll be hearing from our support team in the coming weeks. You can also reach us at support@civisanalytics.com if you have any questions.

If you are interested in learning more about Civis to help your organization make smarter, data-driven decisions, you can take it for a spin here.
