What do you like most about IBM SPSS Statistics?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
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.
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 different types of solutions.
The most valuable feature is the user interface because you don't need to write code.
It has the ability to easily change any variable in our research.
They have many existing algorithms that we can use and use effectively to analyze and understand how to put our data to work to improve what we do.
The solution is very comprehensive, especially compared to Minitabs, which is considered more for manufacturing. However, whatever data you want to analyze can be handled with SPSS.
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.
The best part is that they have an algorithm handbook, so you can open it up and understand how it works, and if it is useful, this is very important.
Some of the most valuable features that we are using with some business models are machine learning algorithms, statistical models given to us by the business, and getting data from the database or text files.
Most of the product features are good but I particularly like the linear regression analysis.
