Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The features that I have found most valuable are the Bayesian statistics and descriptive statistics.Since we are using the software as a statistical tool, I would say the best aspects of it are the regression and segmentation capabilities. That said, I've used it for all sorts of things.The solution is very comprehensive, especially compared to Minitabs, which is considered more for manufacturing. However, whatever data you want to analyze can be handled with SPSS.The solution has numerous valuable features. We particularly like custom tabs. It's very useful. We end up analyzing a lot of software data, so features related to custom tabs are really helpful.In terms of the features I've found most valuable, I'd say the duration, the correlation, and of course the nonparametric statistics. I use it for reliability and survival analysis, time series, regression models in different solutions, and different types of solutions.The most valuable feature is the user interface because you don't need to write code.It has the ability to easily change any variable in our research.They have many existing algorithms that we can use and use effectively to analyze and understand how to put our data to work to improve what we do.

It has a lot of data connectors, which is extremely helpful.IBM Watson Studio consistently automates across channels.The system's ability to take a look at data, segment it and then use that data very differently.The scalability of IBM Watson Studio is great.The most important thing is that it's a multi-faceted solution. It's a kind of specialist, not a generalist. It can produce very specific information for the customer. It's totally different from Google or any search engine that produces generic information. It's specialty is that it's all on video.The solution is very easy to use.

Cons
I know that SPSS is a statistical tool but it should also include a little bit of analytical behavior. You can call it augmented analysis or predictive analysis. The bottom line is it should have more graphical and analytical capabilities.It would be helpful if there was better documentation on how to properly use the solution. A beginner's guide on how to use the various programming functions within the product would be so useful to a lot of people. I found that everything was very confusing at first. Having clear documentation would help alleviate that.One of the areas that should be similar to Minitabs is the use of blogs. The Minitabs blog helps users understand the tools and gives lots of practical examples. Following the SPSS manual is cumbersome. It's a good, exhaustive manual, but it's not practical to use. With Minitabs, you can go to the blogs and find specific articles written about various components and it's very helpful. Without blogs, we find SPSS more complicated.The solution needs more planning tools and capabilities.Most of the package will give you the fixed value, or the p-value, without an explanation as to whether it it significant or not. Some beginners might need not just the results, but also some explanation for them.This solution is not suitable for use with Big Data.The design of the experience can be improved.The product should provide more ways to import data and export results that are user-friendly for high-level executives.

The initial setup was complex.Some of the solutions are really good solutions but they can be a little too costly for many.It's sometimes easy to get lost given the number of images the solution opens up when you click on the mouse and the amount of different tabs.The decision making in their decision making feature is less good than other options.So a better user interface could be very helpfulMore features in data virtualization would be helpful. The solution could use an interactive dashboard that could make exploration easier.

The price of this solution is a little bit high, which was a problem for my company.We think that IBM SPSS is expensive for this function.
