Analyse 5.5.2 – Jewels in the Crown (pt 2)

Analyse 5.5.2 – Jewels in the Crown (pt 2)

This is part 2 of a series of articles on automating tasks in Analyse. According to the new Askia tagline, you can now automate insights. The claim is bold and possibly premature. But for years now, we have been thinking of ways we could decrease the lapse between questionnaire design and the analysis. Of course producing insights is hard on a new topic but it shouldn’t be that difficult on a more targeted environment. If your survey is generic enough (say an ad test or package testing), you…

Analyse 5.5.2 – Jewels in the Crown (pt 1)

Analyse Extensions R Packages

As technology has evolved, data science techniques have become more mainstream and this, in turn, has contributed to the increased value of data in industries like yours and mine. Some say it’s the new oil! Whilst pitching their oil rigs in a sea of numbers, companies need to seek out the modern-day alchemists who can turn the regular data we all know into this black gold enthusiastically allegorised by economists and business leaders alike. Well, you don’t need to be Paulo Coelho to know which field you will…

Pragmatic machine learning – from Analyse to iOS

Machine learning is coming

I joined Askia in January as a techie and some might say that writing a data science post when surrounded by a bunch of confirmed data science nerds is stupid. I would say it’s suicidal. So to make everyone comfortable I’d like to add that this is not a data science article but a pragmatic approach of how anyone could use data from our analyse software to create some pretty cool predictive models. I am going to walk through a very basic example of how we used data…

Pirates’ favourite language? ARRRRR!

Pirates' favourite language?

The first time I heard about modelling and advanced statistics was when I read Isaac Asimov’s Foundation. The second time – a good 10 years later – was when I was taught about Factor Analysis by Herve de Milleville at university, and then later met Jean-Paul Benzecri, Ludovic Lebart and André Salem. My thought then was that Hari Seldon’s dream had come true. Unfortunately years of practice have put a damper on my hopes – post rationalisation made me blame Chaos Theory and as the famous adage goes:…

AskiaAnalyse: team me up, Scotty!

Askia Analyse team me up Scotty header

The software in the Askia range have been designed to work alongside each other.  If you know how your survey tree looks in Design, you will not be surprised by how it looks in Analyse. That’s the whole point of an integrated suite. Analyse has mainly been designed to work with a single user, creating their weightings, calculated variables and filters in their QES file. When we realised that a lot of our users were working on continuous surveys, we introduced Surf files: the analysis definitions were stored…
