What is most valuable?

Well, actually, in terms of the technique that we use, and also the implementation, I prefer to use SPSS Clementine right now. It can cover a big amount of data, instead of just basic SPSS where you… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Similar to other tools, we can identify the pattern of the customers and we can differentiate between which customers we should target, which customer we should not target, and do some basic analysis… more»

What needs improvement?

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. Also, right now we're… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I used several kinds of tools. It depends on the organization, what it already has. For example, in Alliance, right now, we already have our own solutions, so I just follow their organization rules… more»

What other advice do I have?

Regarding SPSS basic, I think the buyer should understand what are the requirements of the organization. So if it requires lot of data processing, maybe switching to IBM SPSS Clementine would be… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

As I said, I just follow what the company preference is for using tools. I'm not doing evaluation between products. The tool is already in place in the company, I just use it.

What is most valuable?

* Merge, Aggregation, and Crosstabs functions are most valuable when I'm performing data preparation. * Statistical modelling functions within this product, such as Regression and PCA function, are also useful. * The point-and-click… more»

How has it helped my organization?

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.

What needs improvement?

Needs more statistical modelling functions.

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

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… more»

What other advice do I have?

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.

What do you think of IBM SPSS Statistics?

What is most valuable?

Custom tables and macros: They allow us to create useful reports quickly for a broad audience.

How has it helped my organization?

We can provide internal benchmarks that allow specific units to compare themselves to others and the whole organization.

What needs improvement?

Scripts are clunky to work with. Better documentation on how to use macros. More affordable training for new staff members.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used it for 17 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Some of the versions have issues. It is not always made public that a “fix” is available. Many hours can be wasted thinking you have something wrong in your code when it really is an issue with the newest version.
