Innovative Analytics Since 1984
Founded in 1984, Palisade’s first product was PRISM, which gave PC users the ability to quantify risk by running Monte Carlo simulations. In 1987 it was succeeded by @RISK for Lotus 1-2-3, the world’s first Monte Carlo simulation add-in for spreadsheets. Today, @RISK is an add-in to Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Project. It has become the world’s leading risk analysis tool and remains the company's best-known product.
Building on the success of @RISK, Palisade has
developed other programs to meet the growing
professional demand for technically refined
decision support software. These programs form
