I am satisfied with this solution, and I would recommend it if you want to go for a paid solution. I would rate IBM SPSS Modeler a nine out of ten.

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 from different perspectives such as healthcare and education will have pretty decent output and results. We have been happy with this tool, although now the times have changed. There is some commercial pressure for us to implement something that is cheaper. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

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.

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.

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.

Weigh the pros and cons. A lot of companies do not want to go with SPSS Modeler because of cost. What I have told some of my customers - I do some consulting as part of my job at the university - is, don't look just at the dollars and cents, look at benefits in your use case. In terms of selecting a vendor, the most important thing to me is the availability of support. Maybe I'm biased because I used it for a long time at IBM, but I would give it a 10 out of 10.

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 utilization of the desktop tool first. It is not a BI tool. It is pure analytics. It does not do reporting as well. And you unfortunately cannot publish your results to Qlik, Tableau, or Power BI. this was another reason we switched to Alteryx.
