The advanced data mining software programs SAS Enterprise Miner for Desktop and SAS Text Miner for Desktop are now available to faculty, students, and staff using imaged PC devices. The software is also available for download.

Version 11 of NVivo, a qualitative data analysis computer software tool, is now available. NVivo 11 has been updated in the ITS image for all university-owned imaged machines, in AppCloud, in Remote Apps, and in software downloads for faculty, staff, and students.
