Mars 3 - Basic versions & prices


incl. 19 % VAT


MARS is a great tool if you need to generate precise and accurate prediction models in a clean and easy way. MARS helps you to generate highly flexible regression-like models for predicion. No matter if you need to forecast the sales volumes for credit cards, insurance claims or customer orders - MARS will help you solve that problem!

Essential part of MARS are its automatic model building routines. MARS will detect the required interactions and transformations for your data to grant the best possible models. MARS data mining approach will detect the cruicial patterns in your business processes and detect the relevant relationships in you data.

MARS - Multivariate Adaptive Regression Splines

MARS – The time consuming, trial and error process of building accurate predictive models is history! Step into the next generation of regression modeling with MARS.

Introducing MARS™, a new high-speed predictive modeling solution that provides superior forecasting accuracy. An essential component of any comprehensive data mining solution, MARS automates the development and deployment of accurate and easy-to-understand regression models. Use MARS to build business intelligence solutions for problems such as predicting credit card holder balances, insurance claim losses, customer catalog orders, and cell phone usage.

MARS is an innovative and flexible modeling tool that automates the building of accurate predictive models for continuous and binary dependent variables. Multivariate Adaptive Regression Splines was developed in the early 1990s by Jerry Friedman, a world-renowed statistician and one of the co-developers of CART. Salford Systems’ MARS, based on the original code, has been substantially enhanced with new features and capabilities in exclusive collaboration with Friedman.

MARS excels at finding optimal variable transformations and interactions, the complex data structure that often hides in high-dimensional data. In doing so, this new-generation approach to data mining uncovers business-critical data patterns and relationships that are difficult, if not impossible, for other approaches to uncover.
