Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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 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.""The SPSS interface is very accessible and user-friendly. It's really easy to get information in it. I've shared it with experts and beginners, and everyone can navigate it.""SPSS is quite robust and quicker in terms of providing you the output.""The features that I have found most valuable are the Bayesian statistics and descriptive statistics.""It is a modeling tool with helpful automation.""The most valuable features are the small learning curve and its ability to hold a lot of data.""You can quickly build models because it does the work for you."

"It has a lot of data connectors, which is extremely helpful.""IBM Watson Studio consistently automates across channels."

"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 blogs and find specific articles written about various components and it's very helpful. Without blogs, we find SPSS more complicated.""If there is any self-generation data collection plan (DCP), it would be helpful in gathering data. It would also be useful if there is a function to scale it up to, let's say, UiPath and have it consolidate and integrate into a UiPath solution.""The solution needs more planning tools and capabilities.""I would like SPSS to improve its integration with other data-filing IBM tools. I also think its duration with data, utilization, and graphics could be better.""It could provide even more in the way of automation as there are many opportunities.""I'd like to see them use more artificial intelligence. It should be smart enough to do predictions and everything based on what you input.""The technical support should be improved.""SPSS slows down the computer or the laptop if the data is huge; then you need a faster computer."

"Some of the solutions are really good solutions but they can be a little too costly for many.""The initial setup was complex."
