The CCA Challenge

We've been puzzled by something about our CCA System for Convergent Cluster Analysis. CCA users have told us that they think CCA is our best product, and yet its sales have been disappointing.

One of CCA's advantages is that it provides built-in assurance that its solutions will be reproducible, a feature we believe is unique. Another is that, because it computes several solutions and reports only the best one, its solutions tend to be of high quality. We keep hoping we can find some way to get the word out about how well it works.

So, we offer the CCA challenge. We're confident that if you compare CCA with another clustering procedure, you'll prefer CCA's cluster solution. Send us a data set that you've clustered by your usual method, and we'll send you back the CCA solution free of charge. Your only obligation is to compare the two solutions and tell us which you prefer. Call us at (360) 681-2300.
