Pre-bundled with the data science packages you need

ActivePython comes bundled with most of the popular data science Python packages like SeaBorn, NumPy, Pandas, Matplotlib, Jupyter and Scikit-Learn.

Get started on your data science or machine learning project quicker than pip installing all the packages you need.

Speed Up Your Algorithms With The Intel® Math Kernel Library

We know that computation time is important so we’ve integrated the Intel Math Kernel Library (MKL) into ActivePython to speed up all your data science and machine learning processing tasks.

You get faster computations and better performance for all your data science projects running on Intel hardware.

The #1 Python Solution Used By Innovative Teams

Open source distributions of Python and third-party packages don’t always meet the support, security, or compliance requirements of large organizations. This is why organizations choose ActivePython for their big data processing and statistical analysis needs.

We also offer licensing options beyond development use. If you’re looking for commercial Python support, compare pricing options in detail.
