This Statistica data function is used for clustering task which is together with various additional outputs also a great foundation for anomaly detection. You can control through the Spotfire application the number of clusters or let the software choose optimal number of clusters. More info about Statistica data functions here.

For construction of the data function the no-code environment of Statistica visual workflows is used (if you are not familiar with Statistica workspaces, please visit this wiki page).

What this example is showing:

  • Example of single functionality computation brought back to Spotfire
  • Example of one input and multiple output data function together with data function parameterization involved
  • Example of triggering data function on demand after pressing action button 
  • Example of universal data function (can be used without changes on new data)

Here is the recording of TIBCO Analytics meetup dedicated to this example. 

If you are intersted in building the Statistica data functions, please find additional examples here

You can use this data function in your dxps also without need of installing the TIBCO Data Science - Workbench product.


Initial Release (version 1.0.0)

Published: December 2019

This release includes TIBCO Data Science - Workbench (Statistica) Workspace used for building the data function as well as two dxps where this data function is applied on different data sets.
