DataRobot

DataRobot is equipped to serve both cloud computing and on-premise work. Its comprehensive cloud module, channeled through Amazon sustains highly flexible machine learning programs. Lower than average costs are provided via cloud networking because there is no need to install hardware and the additional pricing that comes along with that. DataRobot assists in eliminating hassle by offering various methods of deployment in regard to predictive modeling. The program may not be appropriate for smaller startups of 20 or fewer employees, mainly because the exportable prediction code, and native batch scoring may not translate as well to a smaller firm.

IBM SPSS

SPSS is well suited when you are dealing with respondent level data and need to clean, recode, or make changes. It's one of the only softwares that I always go back to using as it is the foundation of statistical software programs. It might not be very useful when looking at BIG data, but it works for reviewing survey data

Pros

DataRobot

  • The interface is easy to use and self-service, with intuitive design.
  • The product is easy to use for data analysts and business users without having to be a data scientist, but if you are one the product is robust, so data scientists can also get some use.
  • All of the screens have explanations of all data points, models, and this makes it easy to provide explanations at the executive level and can easily modify models on the fly.

IBM SPSS

  • SPSS has been around for quite a while and has amassed a large suite of functionality. One of its longest-running features is the ability to automate SPSS via scripting, AKA "syntax." There is a very large community of practice on the internet who can help newbies to quickly scale up their automation abilities with SPSS. And SPSS allows users to save syntax scripting directly from GUI wizards and configuration windows, which can be a real life-saver if one is not an experienced coder.
  • Many statistics package users are doing scientific research with an eye to publish reproducible results. SPSS allows you to save datasets and syntax scripting in a common format, facilitating attempts by peer reviewers and other researchers to quickly and easily attempt to reproduce your results. It's very portable!
  • SPSS has both legacy and modern visualization suites baked into the base software, giving users an easily mountable learning curve when it comes to outputting charts and graphs. It's very easy to start with a canned look and feel of an exported chart, and then you can tweak a saved copy to change just about everything, from colors, legends, and axis scaling, to orientation, labels, and grid lines. And when you've got a chart or graph set up the way you like, you can export it as an image file, or create a template syntax to apply to new visualizations going forward.
  • SPSS makes it easy for even beginner-level users to create statistical coding fields to support multidimensional analysis, ensuring that you never need to destructively modify your dataset.
  • In closing, SPSS's long and successful tenure ensures that just about any question a new user may have about it can be answered with a modicum of Google-fu. There are even several fully-fledged tutorial websites out there for newbie perusal.

Cons

DataRobot

  • Oversold the capabilities.
  • Lack of strong signals in results.
  • Requires heavy engineering support for integration.
Shanna Tellerman | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM SPSS

  • SPSS is not free and is fairly pricey.
  • For those requiring advanced procedures not on SPSS, programmable coding, like in R Statistics, may be more limited and not as robust and use of R or other programs might be needed.
  • Statistical Package for Social Sciences and can only be used to perform only statistical operations. Further purchases of other packages will be required.
  • Default graphics are far from publication quality. Generally, it’s better to use other programs for graphics.
  • Information about effect size and confidence intervals is missing for many techniques.

DataRobot presents a machine-learning platform designed by data scientists from an array of backgrounds, to construct and develop precise predictive modeling in a fraction of the time previously taken. The tech invloved addresses the critical shortage of data scientists by changing the speed and economics of predictive analytics. DataRobot utilizes parallel processing to evaluate models in R, Python, Spark MLlib, H2O and other open source databases. It searches for possible permutations and algorithms, features, transformation, processes, steps and tuning to yield the best models for the dataset and predictive goal.

It's super easy to use for newbies and super powerful for power users! It does EVERYTHING you are usually asked to do analytically. Their Help Desk is PHENOMENAL. And I find the upgrade and renewal price to be a good deal.

SPSS is beginner friendly and user-friendly for beginner analysts and simple statistical tests. It's "click and go" interface does take some learning, but overall this is much easier than other programs I have used and seen. Compared to SAS software, SPSS takes a great deal less familiarizing and it not a matter of learning a coding language like SAS and RStudio.

SPSS does the job, but it can be slow. I do have to plan a lot of time to get through a huge amount of data.

We were unable to make use of the software without a lot of investment on our side. While their team reaches out frequently the software is not designed for companies with smaller data sets and this should have been reviewed before the contract was signed and not after. Their team is available to support your existing team but they cannot make the software work if it's not applied to the right size data set or the right problems. I highly recommend uncovering these issues before signing a contract.

I have not contacted IBM SPSS for support myself. However, our IT staff has for trying to get SPSS Text Analytics Module to work. The issue was never resolved, but I'm not sure if it was on the IT's end or on SPSS's end

Have a plan for managing the yearly upgrade cycle. Most users work in the desktop version, so there needs to be a mechanism for either pushing out new versions of the software or a key manager to deal with updated licensing keys. If you have a lot of users this needs to be planned for in advance.

Alternatives Considered

DataRobot

No competition, especially with data enablement services offered through DataRobot. The self-service and intuitive screens with explanations can’t be beat in DataRobot.
Jerry Gage-Anderson | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM SPSS

Other software that I can compare to SPSS include R, Excel and SAS. Overall, SPSS is easier to get familiar with and more user friendly which is why I can see it as more appropriate for taught courses. The computational capabilities are not similar to R, but on the other hand it is simpler to use. Excel is much more time consuming in any scenario deriving from the very basics of statistical analysis.
