SPSS is a user-friendly data analytics software

What do you like best?

I like that SPSS is user-friendly, you can show other users how to do basic data management and analysis using the dropdowns or with code. I find that users more easily understand SPSS than SAS at first.

What do you dislike?

SPSS isn't as powerful as SAS for data management from my experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a user-friendly data management and analyses tool, SPSS is one to consider. It allows users to utilize drop-down menus and produce reports/graphics with their data. SPSS allows the user to see their data and make corrections to it within the software. It is more user-friendly, but less powerful than SAS. If your employees are looking for something they can begin using right away without a significant amount of training, this is a great tool. The reports it produces are also more appealing than other data software currently available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

IBM SPSS Statistics is a great tool for users to be able to conduct basic statistical analyses without knowing significant amounts of programming/coding language like SAS. I find it aligns more with SAS enterprise guide because users can 'point-and-click' to conduct different tasks.

Overall a really solid statistics package

What do you like best?

SPSS has an easy point-and-click interface, making data analysis relatively straightforward. Another benefit is the huge community. If you ever have a problem, there are tons of resources available. SPSS doesn't require a ton of coding experience, like some other options such as R.

What do you dislike?

SPSS doesn't have a ton of detailed description for all of the functions it offers. It can be easy to run a test that isn't the best option for your data source. There are, however, vast outside sources online that can be a huge help. Also, SPSS isn't quite as versatile as an open-source option like R.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to do solid up-front training. It will be much easier than trying to go back and retroactively learn as you go. Also, as with any statistical software, a mathematical understanding of statistics is key to really making the best of the product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work in a research-related field and we use SPSS to ensure that we are only reporting statistically significant figures.

La evidencia estadistica en un rapido procesamiento

What do you like best?

Lo que mas me gusta del programa es que se puede trabajar de forma amena y muy sencilla la parte de los modelos de regresión lineal, permitiendote construir el mismo utilizando previamente sus funciones de correlaciones estadisticas. Una vez obtenido el modelo, te pemite ver la bondad de ajuste del mismo a traves de test como el de R cuadrado ajustado y que tan ajustable es el modelo al fenomeno representado.

What do you dislike?

A pesar del poder del programa, las tablas de los test de estadistica no parametrica para analizar datos de tipo cualitativo, son extremadamente tediosas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si lo que deseas es representar fenomenos desde el modelado matematico, es muy sencillo la carga del archivo de datos y poder crear distintos modelos y ver el que mejor se ajusta a tu descripción

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Nos permite predecir valores e inferir sobre fenomenos estudiados en el corto y mediano plazo, que por razones de tiempo y costo no se pueden obtener, aumentando nuestra precisión.

El control de la ciencia estadistica para estudio de fenomenos sociales

What do you like best?

El software permite un control total de la organización, para las distintas fases para los diferentes tipos de estudios estadísticos, tanto los exhaustivos (censos), como investigaciones por muestreo. Permitiéndote dar un valor agregado a las investigaciones, al poder hacer distintos tipos de modelos predictivos, desde la regresión lineal hasta poder hacer muestras representativas según características de la población de estudio. Su potencia, sencillez y rapidez para las estadísticas descriptivas supera a cualquier otra herramienta para análisis estadístico.

What do you dislike?

la sección de analisis / redes neuronales no es muy amigable. Se hace tediosa cada vez que se debe modificar las variables a recodificar

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si trabajas con estadisticas descriptivas, muestras, control de calidad estadisitico y hasta te animas a ingresar en el mundo de la inteligencia artificial (modelo de redes neuronales), es la aplicación correcta para agregar valores y soportes cientifico a la calidad de tus trabajos e investigaciones.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

El procesar de forma rapida, grandes cantidades de datos, empalmando series estadisticas provenientes de distintos organismos, logrando un valor agregado al reconstruir series historicas estadisticas, permitiendo trabajar modelados, predicciones y simulaciones para comportamientos futuros de dichos fenomenos.

excelente paquete estadístico, amigable y su contenido cubre los modelos estadístico mas usados

What do you like best?

La agrupación de contenidos en tres grandes áreas a saber: Estadística básica, univariante y bivariante: la Estadística Multivariante y Modelos especiales . Aplica los modelos a datos y situaciones reales e interpreta los resultados obtenidos en las aplicaciones pueden utilizarse múltiples modelos para analizar datos cuantitativos o cualitativos, las salidas y representación de los datos es simple e intuitiva, personas con conocimientos básicos de estadística puede utilizar el programa y obtener muy buenos resultados.

What do you dislike?

Como tiene capacidad para trabajar con grandes bases de datos y un interfaces para la mayoría de análisis, los informes de resultados se elaboran con mucha información, lo que permite distraer al usuario, puede ser que el usuario se pierda debido a la gran cantidad de información que se genera, ademas de ello debe tenerse cuidado con la aplicación de los métodos, dado que alguno se utilizan para casos específicos, por ejemplo el manejo de datos cualitativos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Deben tener en cuenta que se encuentran frente a una de las herramientas más poderosas para el análisis de datos estadísticos, y por otra parte también, ante la más simple e intuitiva, el procesamiento de la información, las salidas de datos y los gráficos, producen análisis sencillos, que con conocimientos básicos de estadística cualquier profesional o estudiante puede interpretar.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Análisis e interpretación de casos sociales, con la aplicación multivariable , clister análisis y un sin fin de análisis tanto para trabajos particulares, como para desarrollo académico.

Not as adaptable as some of the new statistic software, but a stable in the field

What do you like best?

Generally, everyone used or has used SPSS, so it is easy to communicate your analyses across lab groups, universities, etc. As such, it is relatively simple to find help/support online from other users on how to run different sorts of analyses online.

What do you dislike?

There are many statistical analysis programs on the market these days. SPSS is still a paid program, not open-source like R, for example. It also is rather buggy--the GUI works just fine, but the Syntax (code for programming analyses) not so uncommonly will not work for no reason at all. Only retyping the problem section will fix this issue. If you prefer using code for analyses, SPSS is less intuitive and more difficult than other programs. The graphs and plots generated directly from SPSS are actually quite awful and need to be redone in another program before they can be used in any reasonable publication or presentation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a long-standing stable in the field, we teach this in classes to all our undergraduates. It's a great starter program for analyses because of the easy to use GUI.
