What is most valuable?

I think the tool is very helpful in terms of, when you work on a foothold, you can compare how many people came into the center between fiscal periods. You take two quarters and compare them and this… more »

How has it helped my organization?

We are using this product for analysis of an exhibition center. It is releasing a lot of media and Modeler assesses how the shows were in the last six months. When it comes to a relative comparison… more »

What needs improvement?

I think that Modeler needs to be more commercially effective because, of the competing tools, some of them are free and others are available at a very nominal cost. When you are not using the product… more »

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

This tool, being an IBM product, is pretty expensive. Our license key is renewed on a yearly basis.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

It is a challenge because you can't switch a tool just like that, because you've been using the tool for a while, and then obviously familiarization with something which is new takes some time. You… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this product, although it depends on the nature of the business. Those in the public sector or semi-government organizations who are supposed to report a lot of impact assessment… more »

What is most valuable?

I like the automation and that this product is very organized and easy to use. I think these features can be found in many products but I like IBM Modeler because it's very clear about how to use it. There are many other good features and I… more »

What needs improvement?

Dimension reduction is very important, especially if you are working with millions of recordings and thousands of variables. It exists already, but it should be classified separately. The solution could be improved by adding a feature for… more »

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

There is a basic fee and you pay extra for added features. You'll need to use Linux which also adds to the price.

What other advice do I have?

They offer a four-week trial which is maybe enough time to study the product. It really is very good. I would rate this solution a nine out of 10.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at other options but it was clear that IBM was the simplest solution to deal with because of its organization. You have the three main topics of data mine: data science as in association, segmentation and clustering. IBM has it… more »

How has it helped my organization?

* Pretty much the automated modeling process helps us to get going so quickly. * A lot of jobs that are stuck in Excel due to the huge numbers of rows are tackled pretty… more »

What needs improvement?

* Formula writing is not straightforward for an Excel user. Totally new set of functions, and it takes time to learn and teach. * Automating procedures: Writing macros is… more »

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

When you are close to end of quarter, IBM and its partners can get you 60% to 70% discounts, so literally wait for the last day of the quarter for the best prices if you… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used SAS Enterprise Guide and Enterprise Miner. Compared to those, SPSS Modeler is easier to learn and utilize. when compared to Alteryx, Alteryx is a much more… more »

What other advice do I have?

Do not dive into the server directly. It is very hefty for just doing calculations that can already be done by SQL Server R or Oracle or teradata at hand... Maximize the… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I checked out RapidMiner, which is a good alternative. However, SPSS Modeler is more capable and automated.

What is most valuable?

It's a very good and reasonably priced solution. As a data analyst, the data aggregation is very good. It's a very quick method to merge the data. If you can use the data site, they offer you about 20 different analytic modes. It's simple… more »

What needs improvement?

This is an expensive predicament software solution. Currently, the terminals offer the tools for the data analytics, but it needs development. There's a limit to the license. For the data analytics, it's very similar to Tableau. The… more »

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

I believe the licensing costs are $5,000 per year.

What other advice do I have?

It's a very good product. We haven't used the full extent of its power because our team only use the basic part of the Modeler which deals with the migration of data. I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Some of the team might prefer Tableau as it's a newer solution, but this one works for us.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for me is just being able to run statistical analysis on my data.

What needs improvement?

I actually think it is a great product. Maybe there could be some enhancement with more extensive help built into the interface. This could help end-users to understand the features as well as how to use them. Apart from that, it is a great product.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend IBM SPSS Modeler for people who need to do statistical analysis of this type. On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I would rate this product as an eight-out-of-ten. It does the job.
