We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Very good data aggregation."
"It is a great product for running statistical analysis."
"Automation is great and this product is very organized."
"You take two quarters and compare them and this tool is ideal because it gives you a lot of visibility on the before and after."
"The supervised models are valuable. It is also very organized and easy to use."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to handle large data sets."
"The technical support is okay."
"It's very easy to use once you learn it."
"Requires more development."
"It would be good if IBM added help resources to the interface."
"Dimension reduction should be classified separately."
"When you are not using the product, such as during the pandemic where we had worldwide lockdowns, you still have to pay for the licensing."
"Time Series or forecasting needs to be easier. It is a very important feature, and it should be made easier and more automated to use. For instance, for logistic regression, binary or multinomial is used automatically based on the type of the target variable. I wish they can make Time Series easier to use in a similar way."
"This solution should be made more user-friendly."
"One of the things that can be simplified is self-service analytics, especially for a citizen developer or a citizen data scientist."
"The installation could also be easier, and the price could be better."
"This tool, being an IBM product, is pretty expensive."
"Its price is okay for a company, but for personal use, it is considered somewhat expensive."
"I think that the cost-benefit ratio is okay."
"SAS is very expensive."
