310,868 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
Custom tables and macros: They allow us to create useful reports quickly for a broad audience.
in terms of the simplicity, I think the SPSS basic can handle it.
Quick deployment to dashboards and analytics features (using SAS Visual Statistics and Enterprise Guide). Easy to create a simple forecast and discover business insights using segmentation tools.
Simplifies report designs and quickly displays tables and graphs.
The speed to display charts and react to users' choices is great.
The alert generation feature also helps in sending out ad hoc messages to the business users if business thresholds have been crossed.
Needs more statistical modelling functions.
Better documentation on how to use macros.
Perhaps in terms of visualization. It's not really easy to do some data visualization, just simple, descriptive analysis in SPSS. I think that could be an area for improvement.
Better connectivity with other data origins, better visualization, and the ability to create KPIs directly would all help.
There are scalability issues. It depends on the data volume and number of end-users. VA requires a lot of hardware resources to move volumes of data.
The charts and tables could use better sorting, primarily using other variables than the ones on the figure. If they could implement views like in the older version (previous to Viya), it would be very nice.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
More affordable training for new staff members.
If it requires lot of data processing, maybe switching to IBM SPSS Clementine would be better for the buyer.
Licensing is simple.
