Python-Based Data Analysis Platform




Picalo is a collaborative, open-source effort to produce a data analysis application suitable for auditors, fraud examiners, data miners, and other data analysts!

Example uses of Picalo:

 * Analyzing financial data, employee records, and purchasing systems for errors and fraud
 * Importing Excel, XML, EBCDIC, CSV, and TSV files into databases
 * Interactively analyzing network events, web server logs, and system login records
 * Importing email into relational or text-based databases
 * Embedding controls and fraud testing routines into production systems

Who Is Picalo For?

1. Auditors and data analysts who have a bent towards information technology. These people want a powerful application they have explicit control over, and they are willing to brave the learning curve that warrants such power and control.
2. Less technical, "regular" data analysts who want to efficiently use the skills of #1.
3. Python-based analysts who want a GUI to run their routines within. For example, Picalo would make an excellent front end to the Numeric/Numarray Python libraries.
