Likelihood to Recommend

Domino

Domino is secure by comparison, due in part by it's lower market share, but also it's native encryption capability. Domino is stable. With fewer changes and revisions, Domino performance can be relied upon with existing infrastructure. Despite its clunky admin console, administration as a whole is easier and more intuitive. The native Domino application language is either Java or LotusScript. Finding developers for the latter application can be troublesome.

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

Domino

  • Domino support for policy-based user registration and deployment eases end-user creation.
  • User access to databases is simplified via group membership and defined roles.
  • Email replication to clustered servers is simplified through connection/replication documents stored centralized address book
  • Group calendaring enabled at client level controls.

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

Domino

  • I am not a fan of the Domino ID for authentication purposes. Some Admins appreciate this feature, but ID aging, updating and management issues are burdensome.
  • Integrations with current available software applications as a result of lower Domino adoption rates.
  • Administration tools are somewhat dated and clunky. Even with updates and patches, the Domino administrator console hasn't changed in years.
Christopher Stark | 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.

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.

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

Domino

Having administered Domino right out of tech school I have very limited experience with other platforms. Realizing that Exchange is the de facto solution used by the rest of the universe, and now O365\Azure to eliminate on-prem data centers the future of direct platform administration is numbered. I lack the experience to usefully comment on or compare other products.
Christopher Stark | 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.

Return on Investment

Domino

  • The immediate impact on my organization as a non-profit is cost. Enterprise pricing for a Domino solution is exponentially more inexpensive than more popular applications.
  • Of the most obvious impacts is user familiarity. Given a vast majority of the employment pool having familiarity with MS products, orienting new employees to Domino\Notes is burdensome. Adoption is slow and resistance is high.
  • Hiring Domino administrators and developers is increasingly challenging.
  • The recent sale of the Domino platform away from IBM is concerning.

IBM SPSS

  • IBM SPSS has allowed me to quickly analyze data for research.
  • IBM SPSS has allowed me to complete analyses in order to submit research findings to conferences and complete manuscripts.
  • IBM SPSS has enabled me to meet research objectives set out in grant proposals.
