A helpful user interface, but not suitable for use with Big Data

What is our primary use case?

My primary use for this solution was to interpret the results of a survey. I made use of correlation methods and other features to perform this analysis.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the user interface because you don't need to write code. You can drag and drop selections and the menu is very helpful. You can adjust your parameters and other things, all through the interface.

What needs improvement?

The licensing model is not popular and should be changed to SaaS.

This solution is not suitable for use with Big Data.

For how long have I used the solution?

I had been using IBM SPSS Statistics for two or three years. I have changed roles and am not currently working with this solution.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of this solution is good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of this solution is not good because we cannot use it with Big Data. Instead, we used IBM SPSS Modeler.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price of this solution is a little bit high, which was a problem for my company.

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that I recommend for people who do not need to work with Big Data.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
