Total number of reviews on IT Central Station

Number of followers on IT Central Station
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. For Views, Comparisons, Reviews, and Followers the score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score of 17.5 points. Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 17.5% (weighting factor) * 80% = 14. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 30 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What needs improvement?

I mentioned about the distributed architecture in my previous answer, but they did with version 3.5. This time maybe I could add the integration with graph databases like Neo4j.

What is most valuable?

Well, actually, in terms of the technique that we use, and also the implementation, I prefer to use SPSS Clementine right now. It can cover a big amount of data, instead of just basic SPSS where you have limitations, how many observations you... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Similar to other tools, we can identify the pattern of the customers and we can differentiate between which customers we should target, which customer we should not target, and do some basic analysis. I think that's the thing that helps our... more»

What needs improvement?

Perhaps in terms of visualization. It's not really easy to do some data visualization, just simple, descriptive analysis in SPSS. I think that could be an area for improvement. Also, right now we're handling more and more data. Maybe, in the... more»

What is most valuable?

It enables statistical modeling of data using Base SAS (another product from the same vendor) as the backbone. One can create visual models to see the steps involved in modelling of data.

How has it helped my organization?

Using Base SAS, one can do statistical analysis of data. However, Base SAS is completely code driven (doesn't have any GUI). This is a big limitation as statisticians, often, are not so good at programming. SAS Enterprise Miner extends GUI... more»

What needs improvement?

The product is still not as intuitive as one would like it to be. For example, a competing product, IBM SPSS Modeler is nearly completely GUI driven, while SAS Enterprise Miner lacks some features. Plus it is prohibitively expensive and is... more»

What is most valuable?

What I like is that when you are trying to use a particular algorithm, it actually has the algorithm name. For example, there is actually a node for a C5 decision tree, whereas with other software you get a generic decision tree and you don't... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It is just a lot faster. So you do not have to write a bunch of code, you can throw that stuff on there pretty quickly and do prototyping quickly.

What needs improvement?

I am really happy with it right now, which is why I still use it. I think it is just fine the way that it is, but again, I'm not really using it to deploy real solutions. It is just for prototyping and academic kind of stuff.

What is most valuable?

I think it is the point and drag features that are the most valuable. You can simply click at the windows, and then pull up the functions. What you need is then directly over there, and then you can select the parameters over the windows. Then just click and the results show up.

What needs improvement?

If IBM could add some of the popular models into the SPSS for further analysis, like popular regression models, I think that would be a helpful improvement. I would also like have more options to manipulate the interface of the report, as well as to be able to customize it and make it more personalized. Right now, SPSS doesn't give me that ability to do that.

What do you think of IBM SPSS Statistics?

Improvements to My Organization It has helped our analyst unit deliver work with more transparency and confidence, given that we can always view the dataset in totality, after each step of data transformation. • Valuable Features Merge, Aggregation, and Crosstabs functions are most valuable when I'm performing data preparation. Statistical modelling functions within this product, such as Regression and PCA function, are also useful.  The point-and-click interface is user-friendly. • Room for Improvement Needs more statistical modelling functions. • Use of Solution More than five years. • Stability Issues Not applicable. • Scalability Issues Not applicable. • Customer Service and Technical Support Good. • Initial Setup Setup was straightforward. My...

What do you think of IBM SPSS Modeler?

Primary Use Case I use it for research. It is able to do the basics but does not offer much variation. There are not a lot of options. • Valuable Features It is easy to use and robust. • Room for Improvement When I do clustering, I want to try a different stream, but currently the only thing that I can really pick is averaging. There are no other options. I would like to see more options added and some modeling things. • Stability Issues The stability is good. • Scalability Issues The scalability is good. • Other Solutions Considered JMP, because my team is moving toward SAS. I don't quite like SAS because of the user interface, but now they have JMP which is graphical and I like it. • Other Advice I would recommend SPSS to someone who has just started...

What do you think of KNIME?

Valuable Features Usability, and organising workflows in very neat manner. Controlling workflow through variables is something amazing. • Improvements to My Organization Lot of manual work has been automated through this and single solution created on this can be used by others, too. We have implemented the same thing in our organization as CAE. • Room for Improvement Data handling capacity. Currently it handless 25M rows of data, after which you will face lagging issue. System resource usage. Knime will occupy total system RAM size and other applications will hang. • Use of Solution I have been using it for 18 months. • Stability Issues Nope. • Scalability Issues When the data limit exceeds, it will get lag. • Customer Service and Technical Support A...

What do you think of IBM SPSS Statistics?

Valuable Features Custom tables and macros: They allow us to create useful reports quickly for a broad audience. • Improvements to My Organization We can provide internal benchmarks that allow specific units to compare themselves to others and the whole organization. • Room for Improvement Scripts are clunky to work with. Better documentation on how to use macros. More affordable training for new staff members. • Use of Solution I have used it for 17 years. • Stability Issues Some of the versions have issues. It is not always made public that a “fix” is available. Many hours can be wasted thinking you have something wrong in your code when it really is an issue with the newest version. • Scalability Issues I have used SPSS with 100,000 records. At that point,...

What do you think of IBM SPSS Modeler?

Primary Use Case I used SPSS for statistical hypothesis analysis and it performed well.  It helped me in that I didn't need to write them by hand, and I could get a result in one or two minutes. That helped me a lot.  • Room for Improvement I would like see more programming languages added, like MATLAB. That would be better. • Deployment Issues The instillation was easy. • Stability Issues The stability was good. • Scalability Issues It was scalable. • Previous Solutions  I also use SAS, but SPSS is easier than SAS, and I enjoy it. • Other Advice I would advise my colleagues to use SPSS, depending on the work that they want to do. Though for complex issues I might advise them to use better software.

What do you think of IBM SPSS Statistics?

Valuable Features None are particularly valuable to me, because all its features are available in better condition elsewhere.  • Improvements to My Organization Once I joined an organization, I stopped using SPSS entirely. Who needs to spend thousands on a license for halfway decent software when R and Python work for free? • Room for Improvement Cost Everything else about the software • Use of Solution I have used SPSS for about 10 years.  • Stability Issues It breaks under the weight of a moderate amount of data. • Scalability Issues It breaks under the weight of a moderate amount of data.
