Average Rating
Average rating based on reviews
Views
Number of total page views
Comparisons
Number of times compared to another product
Reviews
Total number of reviews on IT Central Station
Followers
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 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»

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»

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.

We have high reporting needs and the data is stored in many different tools. We are moving to predictive analysis too. Still, we need an easy to deploy solution until the IT department finds a better solution to connect all data sources. • Room for Improvement The learning curve is long, and there is lack of e-learning; the tool is not user-friendly to a non-technical user. • Use of Solution One to three years. • Stability Issues No stability issues. • Scalability Issues No scalability issues, if it is accompanied with centralization or the organization has a strong top-down culture. • Customer Service and...

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...
