What is most valuable?

I like that the solution provides many built-in options for us. They have many existing algorithms that we can use. Using them effectively depends on us because we have to understand how to utilize any particular solution. But actually, the product is at a good level when it comes to ease-of-use… more»

What needs improvement?

The areas of SPSS Statics that have room for improvement — where it can be simplified to make it better — have to do with how you connect the SPSS solution with the data. They could provide enhancements like a query console so we can connect to the database and feed data more easily into SPSS. That… more»

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

We did not use a different solution because we are trying to stay with Oracle and IBM solutions for compatibility and dependability.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to other users is that if they are not doing proper data analysis that there are other, better solutions like SPSS to predict and to analyze the data. Assuming the data is already there, they may just be printing a report or pulling a PDF or filling information into the database. But they… more»

What is most valuable?

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… more»

What needs improvement?

I think the duration and time-series need improvement. Some things need more explanation. For instance, if you are using the automated part in SPSS, you have automatic linear modeling. It gives you the meaning of the result, explaining if… more»

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

We have a package for the university students and teachers. It's a package for graduate students, and the students can use it. They can download it and use it.

What other advice do I have?

Of course I would recommend SPSS. I advise everyone to use it. As I mentioned, I wrote books about using SPSS. They are used for training and I knew most of the lecturers were using the package. Time series is a branch in and of itself, and… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated other options. In general, in the Middle East, we use many different software packages, like SAS, Minitab, and SPSS. But I believe that SPSS might be the number one in the Middle East. I'm talking about Saudi Arabia or Egypt.

What is most valuable?

The features that I find to be the most valuable are the anomaly detection and its statistics. The clustering statistics are important as well as the usual old-school statistical analysis called ANOVA and ANCOVA. They are critical. There were some new approaches that I hadn't used before. The best… more»

What needs improvement?

I don't know if this solution is available on the cloud. If it is then we should be using it because it would be even better. The on-premises version is lax in terms of computational capability, so we have to use a more powerful computer. Some new tools will be available soon with self-explanatory… more»

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

Previously I was using SAP Statistics. It was old-school, so I switched to Visual Statistics and it was useful. From there, we switched IBM SPSS Statistics. It is a good solution but it would be even better if it had some automated skills.

What other advice do I have?

It's a pretty old-school statistical tool but it's useful. I would recommend it, although there are some better tools available. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?

Most of the product features are good but I particularly like the linear regression analysis. I also benefit from the import and export of data abilities.

What needs improvement?

I believe the product could be improved. I think there is an issue with the charting and visualization, and I don't think it works as well as the competitive product. There is a lot of competition with other software, and I think the visualization and charting should be changed and made easier and… more»

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

The price of the basic product is okay but if I need to take the advanced model then there is a cost for the different levels. For questionnaire purposes, for example, there is very limited use. You pay to install plugins or add-ons to that. There is another feature for that, I believe, that costs… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this product an eight out of 10.

What is most valuable?

I think that it's easy to use because of its variable inference. It has two variable ports and the variable experience is very nice because every variable has its own purpose. It has the ability to easily change any variable in our… more»

What needs improvement?

In terms of what can be improved, currently, I don't have any ideas because I think that it's in very good shape. It compares with its peers. I do think that the design of the experience can be improved. Also, I think that it can improve… more»

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

I currently work with MiniTask software and Microsoft Excel for analysis in my various work.

What other advice do I have?

I think that it is a very good analysis tool for many different areas. For example, recently I found many applicable uses in my research and for market analysis. SPSS can be deployed as a very powerful tool. I am now consulting with very… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I think that IBM SPSS Statistics is a very powerful analytical tool, even for multivariate statistics. Other software solutions that I mentioned don't have these capabilities and are weaker than SPSS.

What is most valuable?

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. All… more»

What needs improvement?

The data preparation skills need improvement. When I compare the solution with other tools or competitors, this solution needs to simplify data preparation. The solution needs more planning tools and… more»

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

We have an enterprise-level license with IBM.

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

I have previously used different solutions. I've used SAS, R, and Minit. There are many other solutions as well that I have tried out at one time or another.

What other advice do I have?

We're an official IBM partner. We have an enterprise license; I'm not sure if we're currently using the latest version or not. We might be on V3 or V4. I'd recommend the solution to other… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Although we're working with IBM right now, we're currently looking for a new data science platform solution. I was hoping to find an open-source tool that could fit our needs in the future. We're… more»

What is most valuable?

The tests, videos, and tools that are the most useful depend on what objective the company has, but all of the features are quite good. The solution is very comprehensive, especially compared to Minitabs, which is considered more for manufacturing. However, whatever data you want to analyze can be… more»

What needs improvement?

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… more»

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

We currently use both SPSS and Minitabs. We prefer Minitabs, but if we don't find a solution on it, we switch to SPSS.

What other advice do I have?

I'd advise users to think about using Minitabs. The solution is simpler. However, if you are working with big data, SPSS is better. For large data sets, there's nothing better than SPSS. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I'd rate it higher, but it's quite a complex product.

What is most valuable?

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.

What needs improvement?

Each algorithm could be more adaptable to some industry-specific areas, or, in some cases, adapted for maintenance.

What other advice do I have?

I've been working with SPSS for three or four years, but have limited knowledge of the product because we only used it for one project. We use the on-premises deployment model. We're IBM partners. I'd recommend the solution for the purposes of predictive analytics. I'm not sure about other use cases. SPSS can be used also for some other solutions in the area of advanced analytics, or for… more»
