The Analytica product line offers a full range of Editions to meet the needs of different users and applications.
- All Editions run on Windows computers, including Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, and Window Server 2012 and later. Each Edition needs at least 1 GB RAM. We recommend 3 or 4 GB RAM to run large models.
- Analytica also runs on Macintosh using Windows in VMWare, Parallels, or another virtual machine.
Compare Analytica Editions by feature
For Model Builders
These editions let you create and edit models, as well as run existing models. There are also editions to allow you to make your models available to others to run and review. See comparison table of these editions.
Analytica Free 101 gives you the full features of Analytica Professional. You can build models with up to 101 variables and other objects – and it costs nothing! You can also use it to run larger models with more than 101 objects. You can review these larger models in Browse mode (including those made from a higher edition), and can change inputs and generate results, but not edit formulas or add objects. Free download
Analytica Professional offers full Analytica functionality, including the capacity to create models with any number of variables and other user-defined objects, as well as edit and save models. Your model can read from and write to Excel spreadsheets and databases. Order here
Analytica Enterprise offers all the functionality of Analytica Professional, plus Enterprise can use Huge Arrays (up to 100 million elements per Index dimension), apply the Profiler to see computational effort by variable, create Browse-only models, and encrypt confidential model elements.

Analytica Optimizer finds optimal decision strategies subject to constraints and solves simultaneous equations. It provides powerful solvers to discover the decisions that maximize expected value, minimize cost, or optimize any quantified objective. It offers linear programming (LP), quadratic programs, mixed integer programs (MIP), and non-linear programming, with smooth or discontinuous functions. Analytica’s structured optimization makes it easy to formulate problems and it automatically chooses the best solver engine. End users can run models with the Power Player, ADE, or Analytica Cloud Player with the Optimizer option (see below). Order here
For Model End Users
These editions allow you to review models, change inputs and generate results, but not create or edit models. See comparison table of these editions.
The Analytica Free 101 edition allows you to browse and run a model of any size. You can view diagrams and variables, change inputs, compute results and save the model with your input values. You cannot evaluate functions that require the Enterprise or Optimizer editions, or use huge arrays in which the length of a dimension or same size exceeds 30,000. You cannot change the internals of a model containing more than 101 user objects.
Analytica Power Player, like Free 101, lets you browse models, view diagrams and variables, change inputs and generate results, but does not let you create or edit models. It also lets you save changes and use Enterprise features, including accessing databases, and Huge Arrays. You can add Optimizer to Analytica Power Player if you wish to view models created with Analytica Optimizer. Order here
Analytica Cloud Platform (ACP) lets users interact with models via a web browser. It provides a similar user interface to Analytica Power Platform with several enhancements. Users can view models, including influence diagrams, change inputs, and view result tables and graphs. Users can log in and save their own versions of models. To create an ACP application, you create the model with Analytica on the desktop, and then upload it to a server with a couple of clicks. ACP provides a way for users to share, review, and run models. It also lets you rapidly create analytic cloud applications harnessing the full power of Analytica. Order here
All Analytica users with active Analytica support can share their models on ACP at no cost for up to 25 sessions per month. You can also buy a Group Plan (Basic or Premium) that lets multiple users upload, review, and run models in shared project directories. ACP licenses can also be purchased to run on your organization’s servers.
Analytica Decision Engine (ADE) runs Analytica models on a server computer. ADE provides an API (Application Programming Interface) through which other applications can access and run models. ADE supports all models created in Analytica Enterprise, including ODBC database access. The ADE license lets you run ADE on one public server and one development server. Analytica Enterprise serves as the development tool, so developers must also purchase an Analytica Enterprise license. Optimizer can also be added to ADE. Order here
All Editions run on Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, and Window Server 2012 and later. Each Edition needs at least 1 GB RAM. We recommend 3 or 4 GB RAM to run large models.
