Syncfusion Adds Predictive Model Deployment

Syncfusion Essential Studio 2014 volume 3 arrives this month, and includes a new product for deploying predictive models developed using environments such as R, SAS, and SPSS with .NET applications.

Daniel Jebaraj, vice president of Syncfusion, says that users can deploy predictive models without paying any deployment fees or royalties, and they can model using the environment of their choice.

Essential Predictive Analytics is a deployment solution for predictive analytical models that uses the industry standard Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML). Modeling can be performed using environments such as R, SAS, and SPSS, and models can then be consumed directly within .NET applications with only a few lines of code — there is no dependency on backend services or SDKs.

According to Jebaraj, volume 3 contains many additional updates, including more than 15 new control extensions for the LightSwitch HTML client.

"Designed for creating data-driven line-of-business applications in the LightSwitch environment, the extensions include a charting component that can produce commonly used chart types and specialized financial charts, a report viewer for rendering Microsoft SRSS, RDL, and RDLC files on webpages, and a powerful data grid control that supports data binding, filtering, grouping, paging, and more."

Also new in volume 3, Essential Studio for Xamarin provides six controls for use in cross-platform mobile projects built with Xamarin.Forms. The controls include a chart that supports 14 different chart types, a gauge with extensive customization options, and file-format libraries for working with Excel, Word, and PDF files without any external dependencies. All Syncfusion Xamarin.Forms user interface controls can be configured using C# or XAML, and can be deployed to Windows Phone, iOS, and Android without additional coding.
