JMP Statistical Discovery Software from SAS

Are you interested in high level data mining? Does your team participate in a lot of Statistically Designed Experiments? (DOE) JMP does very well here. Are you performing response modeling and creating prediction equations? JMP does this very well. Are you focused on good looking, graphical representations of your data? JMP SHINES in the presentation arena. Do you have some "stats geeks" on staff that know the numbers, but want a fast way to share reporting with others? JMP is a good avenue for this.However, are you looking for a "quick and dirty" stats toolbox for SPC/control charting, for CPK analyses, t-tests or proportion testing? Are you looking for a "vending machine" interaction where you know exactly what you want and you just want one output? If the above describes you more closely, I'd suggest something closer to Minitab.

Pros

  • The performance of Actuate IServer is tremendous. It can handle a large volume of reports with many concurrent users.
  • We can do anything in Actuate. We can write our own function, procedures, methods in Actuate. Basically we can create our own framework in Actuate. No other reporting tool is proving this functionality.
  • It supports the OLTP system very well. The data can be flowed easily from one report to another report, by using array.
  • Control level formatting is available.

  • 1 - Coding is not required: I've used other tools (Python, Mathlab, and R) and coding is required for all of them. With JMP, you just load the data, see it in a table and start working right away. I see it as a statistical version of MS Excel.
  • 2 - Powerful and easy regression: I love how easy, intuitive and powerful JMP is for running regression models. It was great for trying to fit the best regression models.
  • 3 - Smooth OS integration: I use in both macOS and Windows and both run just fine!

Cons

  • Anything that I would consider an area for improvement and have asked about from the company is a area where they are already doing development and refinement and when it is available it comes as a simple upgrade.

  • Simple quick filters at the top of each column of the data table.
  • Update tutorial materials to match the layout of the newest version (13.1), or provide a quick reference guide showing what changed between the previous version and the current one.
  • Window arrangement could be improved and automated. When multiple windows are open (tables, charts, reports, journals) it could get confusing to get to the right place quickly.

JMP Statistical Discovery Software from SAS2.8
Based on 4 answers
Once you figure out the bells and whistles/ins and outs of JMP, it becomes an intuitive, powerful tool. However, the learning curve is very steep; I think the product might be borderline unusable for those without at least a basic understanding of inferential statistics. However, even if you have a statistics background, the learning curve is still steep due to a confusing user interface, a weak help/search tool (at least within the program for Mac users; the online help is very useful), and a general lack of intuitiveness.

The SAS support team came on site to give a presentation to our entire team. They answer questions immediately and provide insight specific to your needs. They also provided a video conference to get me started with the software, which was really useful. There are textbooks written on scripting and JMP usage, which were provided to me as well.

I have not used your online training. I use JMP manuals and SAS direct help.

Breadth of Deployment

The design tool is useful for basic reporting, but many reports require some experience in SQL and JavaScript. Java programming, though not a required skill for basic reports, is needed for better reporting and to access the more advanced features (such as debugging).

JMP is used across the department, and I imagine that it is used in many departments across the university for research.

Alternatives Considered

We looked at a few other competitor's products but based on value for features chose Actuate for its total cost of ownership.

As I stated before, you can use Excel to do many similar things to JMP; you can even use SAS to create graphs without having to do any sort of exporting. If you use SAS, however, you know these graphs are hideous, and sometimes using an Excel graphs makes you look like you are in high school. We also have a visual graphics team in the company that creates custom graphs for us, but that is obviously very expensive.

Collaboration and Sharing

OpenText Analytics6.1
Based on 7 answers
Engineers can share and collaborate building tasks - e.g. One develope builds the report design while another builds the query. But I can't pass in a requirements template from a spreadsheet to construct the report. Collaboration is still strongly based on comminication between stakeholders and engineers rather than through automation

We share JMP files through other file sharing methods, like Google Drive and Dropbox, because the sharing capabilities are not the strongest.

Data Integration

OpenText Analytics7.7
Based on 7 answers
You can include a large variety of data sources, any major rdbms, big data sources, nosql stores. A developer could write a driver for many other systems, though they have wide support. They have support for a number of sources such as salesforce.com, other web based sources can be included using scripting.

Return on Investment

  • Actuate can handle 50 to 60 sub reports inside a report very well.
  • Dynamically creating the datasource, chart, graph, reports are the main advantages. We can do any level of drilling, and can create a performance matrix dashboard efficiently.

  • Increased employee efficiency (frees up programmers)
  • improved presentations to customer
