 ISSISSIPPI Offers Free Big Data Tool

Virtually any observed difference is significant

April 01, 2014 -

The International Six Sigma Institute and Secret Society for Imperious Professionals of Process Improvement (ISSISSIPPI) today announced a free online Big Data analytical tool. As CEO’s everywhere have become enamored with all things Big Data, ISSISSIPPI recognized the need to better enable lean six sigma practitioners of all levels to embrace Big Data. By partnering with the world class statisticians and developers at for technical support, ISSISSIPPI was able to respond to the market need and quickly develop insightful and simple-to-use web-based Big Data software that is now available to everyone. The ISSISSIPPI Big Data tool rounds out a comprehensive portfolio of software and services, all offered free to Lean Six Sigma professionals.

Zoltan Minsky, President of ISSISSIPPI, recently weighed in on the subject: “Big Data is important, but what about those with small data? Who fights for the little guy? The law of large numbers was not intended to restrict access to an exclusive club, but that’s what’s happened, and those without large numbers have been unable to find a spot on the bandwagon. We’re changing that. From now on, anyone can have Big Data, and I mean really large numbers.”

ISSISSIPPI's Big Data tool also stays true to Lean Enterprise principles. “This new approach to making sense out of data is consistent with sound lean management fundamentals. Big Data is now available on demand, with a lot size of 1, and the results are much easier to interpret because they are so much easier to see. That’s what I call visual management,” commented Peg Pennington, noted lean expert, and Director of the Center for Operational Excellence at Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business.

Zoltan Minsky also commented on the importance of visual interpretation: “Larger numbers are certainly easier to see, so they provide a substantial benefit to the practice of statistical analysis. With data this big, virtually any observed difference is significant, and what better way to communicate that significance senior management than through really large numbers?”

You can find ISSISSIPPI’s free big data tool on the website.
