What do you like best?
I like the user friendly UI. The free academic edition for students is a big plus. The semi drag and drop interface is very easy to use, and very beginner friendly. The tool is very easy to learn and master, with very little knowledge of statistics. Report generation is also very easy
What do you dislike?
The software is slightly outdated in the variety and quality of functions it contains. Software packages like MATLAB, R and Python surpass that by a clear margin.
It would be great if there were a way to add user defined functions easily, it's very hard to expand the set of modules in the program otherwise
Recommendations to others considering the product
Statistica is your to-go software if you want to use predictive analytics for your business/project, without needing an in depth knowledge of mathematics and statistics
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I use predictive analytics to drive business decisions for small merchants and use the tool for academics.
Statistica has a lot of built in functions and has reduced our turnaround time by a lot! It's pretty easy to pick up for a newbie and so we don't waste time in training them as well.
