BOSTON, MA, Oct. 16, 2012 /CNW/ - QSR International today announced that its flagship research software NVivo will be released for OS X in the last quarter of 2013. The decision to develop the software for Mac was driven by the increasing popularity of the platform amongst NVivo users and researchers around the world.
NVivo 10 is the leading software for analyzing unstructured data and is the only software that enables researchers to easily work with all types of data side-by-side. Using NVivo 10 researchers can analyze information including interviews, social media, video, web pages, images and data from commonly used applications like SurveyMonkey, OneNote and IBM SPSS Statistics.
QSR International CEO John Owen said, "We are delighted to be developing NVivo 10 to operate on OS X. It is a move that will not only provide platform flexibility and choice to researchers but will also give Mac users native access to the world's most popular qualitative data analysis software for the first time."
"Researchers who are Mac users will benefit from NVivo's efficiency, helping them to get to research outcomes faster while ensuring quality analysis. It will also provide them with the ability to quickly store and retrieve data, work systematically through their information, easily uncover connections and back-up their findings with evidence."
He continued, "In organizations like universities and research institutes globally, adoption of Mac technology is rapidly gaining traction and this surge in growth is only expected to continue. It is our priority at QSR to deliver tools to our customers that continually meet and outperform their needs so the development of NVivo for Mac was a logical progression for us."
NVivo 10 for Mac has been in development for over 12 months and will look, feel and behave like Mac software, but will still be easy to use and familiar to those who currently use NVivo on a Windows PC.
Beta testing for NVivo 10 for Mac will commence in mid-2013. More information and an early preview of NVivo 10 for Mac is available at www.nvivoformac.com
