ThingWorx Analytics Installation > Overview > Descriptive Analytics Components
Descriptive Analytics Components
Descriptive Analytics provides on-demand services that perform common statistical calculations and facilitate statistical monitoring. It is packaged as a microservice that includes the following microservers and their corresponding services:
StatisticalCalculation Microserver
StatisticalMonitoring Microserver
Certain Descriptive Analytics components, such as Thing Shapes and Data Shapes, are already included with the ThingWorx installation, but cannot be used until the Descriptive Analytics microservice installation is complete. When the installer runs, a Java service generates a Virtual Thing for each Descriptive Analytics microserver. They contact the ThingWorx server and create corresponding Remote Things that help provide descriptive analytic services to your Things in ThingWorx.
