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

Pros
You can find a complete algorithm in the solution and use it. You don't need to write your own algorithms for predictive analytics. That's the most valuable feature and the main one we use.The best part is that they have an algorithm handbook, so you can open it up and understand how it works, and if it is useful, this is very important.Some of the most valuable features that we are using with some business models are machine learning algorithms, statistical models given to us by the business, and getting data from the database or text files.Most of the product features are good but I particularly like the linear regression analysis.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.The learning curve to using this product is not steep. The program is appropriate for those who do not have a lot of background in programming, yet have to perform basic statistical analysis.

This product has the ability to take a huge amount of data and make even very complex transformations and analysis very quickly.Personally for me, because I do a lot of development, I like that it is easy to test mathematical algorithms with several matrix calculations. It's perfect for that.

Cons
Each algorithm could be more adaptable to some industry-specific areas, or, in some cases, adapted for maintenance.The statistics should be more self-explanatory with detailed automated reports.Technical support needs some improvement, as they do not respond as quickly as we would like.I think the visualization and charting should be changed and made easier and more effective.Needs more statistical modelling functions.

License types could be more flexible to promote broader use.To make use of the GPU, you have to have an Nvidia card. What I would want it to do is to run in Next Generation with Intel or AMD, and not just with Nvidia.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We think that IBM SPSS is expensive for this function.Our licence is on a yearly renewal basis. While pricing is not the primary concern in our evaluation, as products are assessed by whether they can meet our user needs and expertise, the cost can be a limiting factor in the number of licences we procure.

There is a one time fee to purchase and ongoing yearly maintenance based on usage.We have a single user license. Support and add-ons are an extra fee.
