OTTAWA, Ontario — November 25, 2015 — Kivuto Solutions, the global leader in complex digital distribution solutions, is excited to provide Dell’s award-winning Statistica advanced analytics software for free to college students and professors in the United States.
Announced at the higher education summit EDUCAUSE 2015, the Dell Statistica Free Academic Program is built to nurture college students’ passion for data analytics. Learning how to analyze data will prepare students as the next generation of employees for predicting trends, testing hypotheses, and limiting business risks in a variety of industries.
Workplace preparedness was a major point of discussion at the education technology conference SimplifiED Summit 2015, presented by Kivuto. Dr. Michelle R. Weise, Executive Director of The Innovation Lab at Southern New Hampshire University, observed that the number of skills required for career success increased from approximately 150 to 950 between 2009 and 2014.
