The classic slogan “nobody ever got fired for buying IBM” holds true for the predictive analytics tool SPSS Statistics. Although it trails behind market leader SAS in sales, it’s a solid, popular option. It offers an impressive array of statistical algorithms and modeling capabilities. While it is still aimed at data scientists rather than regular business users, the new interface is easier to use, and it integrates more easily with Microsoft Office.
In short, it’s for companies that want to do complex, in-depth work, rather than find quick answers – though SPSS is capable of quick response and facile data mining.
In particular, large enterprises that already do business with IBM are especially well suited for IBM SPSS Statistics. The interoperability between this application and other elements of the IBM platform can be expected to be seamless.
One of the best-selling predictive analytics tools on the market, IBM SPSS Statistics earns high marks for usability with its recently improved drag-and-drop interface. Now on version 25, it’s a mature, comprehensive tool that allows you to run advanced analytics and create visualizations from the same interface. Multiple licensing and deployment options are available, as is a free 14-day trial.
