JMP has been a commendable companion for statistical problems whether in class or with research problems for our clients who use it to extract reports.
  • Easy to Learn
  • Comprehensive statistical software
  • Industrial applications
  • Loading a large amount of data is very tedious as it takes a lot of time and it crashes very frequently.
  • I dislike the limited options they have in terms of statistical models or analysis tools.
  • Variable value designation is a big problem in JMP, the software fails to recognize the type of data when it comes to the numeric value.
Overall JMP is a very good statistical tool in its features and functionalities. Initially, it does take some to learn the stuff with JMP but later that it is worth it!

It is a really good product for machine learning beginners. It has a really strong point/shoot capability that makes it ideal for those who are learning how to use statistical algorithms but don't know enough to choose the right package in another system. I also like that JMP has a lot of other features that can help beginning data scientists get more familiar with and explore their data.
  • Machine Learning.
  • Data Cleaning.
  • Reproducible code.
  • I like it when I can type in the code myself and although there was a print and save code option from the menus, I could not have produced the code myself in an easy-to-use console.
I think JMP works best for beginners. It helps students get a really firm grasp on the algorithms and choose how to evaluate them. That being said, I think that any data scientist should move to R or Python as quickly as possible so they can take advantage of a wider range of options and flexibility.

I use JMP Statistical Discovery Software to create statistics and data plots from large volumes of manufacturing data. The software helps to reveal manufacturing problems and anomalies, leading to cost reduction for our manufacturing.
  • Create data plots easily ( histograms, box plots, etc).
  • Generate statistics for large volumes of data.
  • Import of data into the JMP tool.
  • Better tutorials on how to write JSL scripts.
  • Need an easy way to generate a large number of statistics and plots from different variables.
  • Need more detailed documentation on how specific measurement systems analysis is calculated.
JMP Statistical Discovery Software has an easy-to-use GUI to create data plots and statistics. Generating measurement system analysis (e.g. Gauge R&R) is also pretty straightforward. Learning the JSL scripting is a steep learning curve and can be difficult for some users to learn.

JMP is incredibly user friendly. It is such a fast, easy and integral tool in data management and quickly analyzing and presenting results in a user-friendly fashion. It helps us track changes in population, census data, and identifying areas of need in across numerous socioeconomic factors in the populations we serve.
  • Finding population averages
  • Tracking changes instituted with project funding
  • Downloading results and integrating them into other software is difficult with certain CRMS
Query Builder saves time in configuring multiple tables and JMP is particularly adept at seamlessly importing data across many formats. I find it much more preferable than SAS, is very user friendly, and doesn't require writing code. I really can't think of a scenario in which I use another format to store and analyze population data for my work.

JMP is in use for our Six Sigma and Lean programs at the organizational level. The software has a yearly corporate license program due to its widespread use.
  • Data exploration.
  • Visual statistical analyses.
  • Rapid acceptance by novice users.
  • Excellent public forums for assistance with uncommon challenges.
  • Outstanding technical support.
  • Great people creating a great product.
  • Interactive platforms could be better, especially when trying to use exported interactive graphics.
  • Improved 'bailout' when the user needs to stop the 'spinning ball' associated with prolonged calculations.
  • Expanded descriptions as to strategies using neural and other higher end ML programming. Hard to know the approach for choosing the number of nodes, trials, etc. The webinars are helpful but a bit more clarity would be helpful.
  • Dependent calculations made with custom formatting (e.g., use of currency) for subsequent derivative calculations should also show in the same (currency) format.
I have found it particularly well suited in exploring small to large datasets (10-10M rows) as long as you have a reasonably fast computer equipped with sufficient RAM (32 Gb+). The graphics packages are very helpful in exploring expected as well as new potential relationships between data factors. The analytic packages have been used with excellent effect and have directly resulted in identifying system-level errors or opportunities which in turn have resulted in millions of dollars in recovered revenue as well as cost savings.

Like all effective power tools, JMP has to be used with care. At a push of a button, it will give you a result, even very significant results, but it still takes an experienced user to determine the useful significance of a 'statistically significant result' based on thousands of observations.

JMP Statistical Software is used at our company by specific individuals when called upon by various departments. The software has been used for product evaluation and discovery including Design of Experiments as well as for human resources data such as turnover and salary reviews. By using JMP Software we can quickly see what the data is telling us about a given situation.
  • JMP Software allows for quick data visualization
  • JMP Software is easy to use and can be learned very quickly
  • JMP Software can be used for detailed statistical analysis using multiple formats and calculations.
  • JMP Software is continuously adding new features.
  • I do not have any current recommendations for changes to the software.
JMP Software is well-suited for data analysis in all forms. It can be used for quickly viewing data using the chart builder or for more in-depth analysis using statistical evaluations. The only time I do not transfer my data to a JMP data table is when I have just a few data points and I can make a chart in excel just as quickly.

This is used account-wise to compare the statistical inferences of the data through graphs. I used this tool to understand the customer churning ratio. The results were more detailed oriented and pretty much easy to understand. We also used this tool in understanding the pattern of primary research data on the comparison of the opinions of the users of medical services.
  • Graphs are more detail-oriented and contain statistical inferences.
  • Everything is drag and drop. Pretty much easy to use and handle and also to learn.
  • Importing and exporting the results are easy and they can be attached with any other tool for processing.
  • Basic cleaning of the data is not that easy and few options are available.
  • Very limited JMP communities are available on internet.
  • While loading big data, it crashes many times.
Understanding data is best for doing comparisons. To understanding our customer churning ratio we compared multiple factors and this tool was pretty handy. We checked the customer data of similar-profile companies in different locations and results were the very best.

While doing analysis on the data where the data contained more than 75 lac rows, this tool was very disappointing and we were unable to clean the data in it.

We started out with only a small group using JMP, but due to its ease of use, we have now expanded it so that almost everyone doing any kind of statistical analysis is using JMP. It is our go-to choice for fast and easy statistical analysis products and is the favorite for new workers.
  • No coding required!
  • Fast, easy, and simple.
  • Microsoft Excel compatible.
  • Not many in-depth tools compared to other programs.
  • Non-open source for quick and easy fixes to bugs.
  • Expensive compared to other programs.
JMP is a really excellent program for providing quick and easy statistical analysis of large and complex data sets. It is extremely user-friendly since it does not require coding, and this makes it a very versatile program for a whole organization. The main area where it is not quite as useful is in performing very specific or complex processes - it lacks many of those powerful tools found in other programs.

I use SAS JMP for all kinds of statistical analysis; from data analysis and visualisation to modeling. Another huge part of the work allowed by JMP is the design of experiment. It allows for the recording, analysis and visualisation of vast quantities of data while remaining user-friendly.
  • Design of experiment: it is a very powerful feature of this software. Unlike other software I tried out, JMP remains user-friendly while providing complete and sophisticated analysis parameters.
  • Data visualisation: JMP provides various data visualisation options that can treat easily vast quantities of data in an intuitive way.
  • Data recording: JMP allows for easy manipulation of vast quantities of data. It is extremely easy to reformat, amend, pivot and export data to new tables. Never before working with data had been made so simple.
  • JMP assumes a lot of statistical knowledge from the user. On the more esoteric analysis, I would like some explanation on why I use such or such method.
JMP is perfect in my environment, research and development, where I must design experiments efficiently to test many parameters, generate large amounts of data that I need to analyse to discover effects or trends. As well as to test process robustness.

I worked in student-led marketing consulting firm and I led the Analytics and Insights team, and we used JMP for data analysis. There were around 50 people in the organization, but only the ones in the Analytics and Insights department used JMP. We received requests from the account managers and we then ran some analysis for them depending on the project need.
  • 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!
  • 1 - Not the most user friendly: In comparison to other tools (Azure ML, for example), JMP is not the most user friendly.
  • 2 - Features are not super comprehensive: Don't get me wrong, JMP has a lot of features! But when you compare against R, which is open source - so there are a lot of people adding new libraries frequently, JMP might lack some things you might want (especially the most recent ones).
  • 3 - Cost: In comparison to others (Azure ML is super cheap, R and Python are free), JMP can seem expensive.
Well suited:
- If you are using a lot of data tables, and would like the best tool to run regression;

Less appropriate:
- If you want to run some of the newest machine learning models;
- If you are on a budget and still want to get the best of your datasets.

JMP is being used to track a wide array of real-time production data at our biotech company. It is currently used by one department (technical operations) in order to quantify failures and track efficiencies with regard to our production processes. These include sales rates/times, creating survival curves, organizing multivariable processes, addressing multicollinearity, technician efficiencies and other aspects of our production. It mainly serves as a conduit to create quick snapshots of overall production efficiency that have replaced cumbersome Excel spreadsheets, as JMP can process basic graphs easier and faster than Excel.
  • JMP has "drag and drop" graph building functions that can filter variables and make adjustments instantaneously.
  • JMP has its own scripting language that can link to an Excel spreadsheet and instantaneously create report-outs
  • There is a low overall learning curve, especially if you are familiar with other statistical programs or more advanced Excel functions
  • Huge support network and prompt response time from SAS. Also, many third party JMP experts that can help you create report outs or write more complicated scripts.
  • It would be nice if JMP had multiple sheets in order to create graphs from pivot tables.
  • The overall aesthetic is pretty weak, compared to Excel, especially if you are trying to make a more polished presentation
  • Changing variables in the graph builder can cause you to lose your formatting, which can be annoying and time-consuming if you make a mistake
JMP is great for crunching huge datasets, especially if you are overloading your Excel workbook. You can have JMP communicate directly with Excel or FileMaker because it has its own scripting language, so you can basically have report at the click of a button. If you are into formatting and pretty graphs, JMP does not include a ton of aesthetic functionality. The drag and drop graph building function allows you to filter out variables easily and change the look of your graph, but can be confusing at times even when you are trying to create simple graphs. Overall it is a great tool to crunch a lot of data without lag.

I use JMP as a starting point for data analysis and exploration. It is not being used across the organization, rather on a case-by-case basis.
  • Save scripts directly to the data table so that the user can recreate the steps to create reports, charts, when the underlying data changes.
  • Multiple options for graphing and plotting and flexible configuration options.
  • Detailed instructions and explanations in the help document.
  • 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.
Well suited for preliminary data analysis, identifying trends and distribution of the data, finding and excluding outliers as appropriate. Since JMP is well equipped for exploratory analysis, it is not the best choice when the level of interaction with the data must be limited.

We assist our clients in accelerating research, both R&D, routine improvement initiatives as well as root cause analysis. JMP is central to this effort in two ways. First, we help them exploit the tool and secondly, we build and integrate JMP with databases and server-based software to create analytical systems that imbed analytics into standard operating procedures.
  • JMP is designed from the ground-up to be a tool for analysts who do not have PhDs in Statistics without in anyway "dumbing down" the level of statistical analysis applied. In fact, JMP operationalizes the most advanced statistical methods. JMP's design is centred on the JMP data table and dialog boxes. It is data focused not jargon-focussed. So, unlike other software where you must choose the correct statistical method (eg. contingency, ANOVA, linear regression, etc.), with JMP you simply assign the columns in a dialog into roles in the analysis and it chooses the correct statistical method. It's a small thing but it reflects the thinking of the developers: analysts know their data and should only have to think about their data. Analyses should flow from there.
  • JMP makes most things interactive and visual. This makes analyses dynamic and engaging and obviates the complete dependence on understanding p-values and other statistical concepts(though they are all there) that are often found to be foreign or intimidating.
  • One of the best examples of this is JMP's profiler. Rather than looking at static figures in a spreadsheet, or a series of formulas, JMP profiles the formulas interactively. You can monitor the effect of changing factors (Xs) and see how they interact with other factors and the responses. You can also specify desirability (maximize, maximize, match-target) and their relative importances to find factor settings that are optimal. I have spent many lengthy meetings working with the profiler to review design and process options with never a dull moment.
  • The design of experiments (DOE) platform is simply outstanding and, in fact, the principal developers of it have won several awards. Over the last 15 years, using methods broadly known as an "exchange algorithm," JMP can create designs that are far more flexible than conventional designs. This means, for example, that you can create a design with just the interactions that are of interest; you can selectively choose those interactions that are not of interest and drop collecting their associated combinations.
  • Classical designs are rigid. For example, a Box-Benhken or other response surface design can have only continuous factors. What if you want to investigate these continuous factors along with other categorical factors such as different categorical variables such as materials or different furnace designs and look at the interaction among all factors? This common scenario cannot be handled with conventional designs but are easily accommodated with JMP's Custom DOE platform.
  • The whole point of DOE is to be able to look at multiple effects comprehensively but determine each one's influence in near or complete isolation. The custom design platform, because it produces uniques designs, provides the means to evaluate just how isolated the effects are. This can be done before collecting data because this important property of the DOE is a function of the design, not the data. By evaluating these graphical reports of the quality of the design, the analyst can make adjustments, adding or reducing runs, to optimize cost, effort and expected learnings.
  • Over the last number of releases of JMP, which appear about every 18 months now, they have skipped the dialog boxes to direct, drag-and-drop analyses for building graphs and tables as well as Statistical Process Control Charts. Interactivity such as this allows analysts to "be in the moment." As with all aspects of JMP, they are thinking of their subject matter without the cumbersomeness associated with having to think about statistical methods. It's rather like a CEO thinking about growing the business without having to think about every nuance and intricacy of accounting. The statistical thinking is burned into the design of JMP.
  • Without data analysis is not possible. Getting data into a situation where it can be analyzed can be a major hassle. JMP can pull data from a variety of sources including Excel spreadsheets, CSV, direct data feeds and databases via ODBC. Once the data is in JMP it has all the expected data manipulation capabilities to form it for analysis.
  • Back in 2000 JMP added a scripting language (JMP Scripting Language or JSL for short) to JMP. With JSL you can automate routine analyses without any coding, you can add specific analyses that JMP does not do out of the box and you can create entire analytical systems and workflows. We have done all three. For example, one consumer products company we are working with now has a need for a variant of a popular non-parametric analysis that they have employed for years. This method will be found in one of the menus and appear as if it were part of JMP to begin with. As for large systems, we have written some that are tens of thousands of lines that take the form of virtual labs and process control systems among others.
  • JSL applications can be bundled and distributed as JMP Add-ins which make it really easy for users to add to their JMP installation. All they need to do is double-click on the add-in file and it's installed. Pharmaceutical companies and others who are regulated or simply want to control the JMP environment can lock-down JMP's installation and prevent users from adding or changing functionality. Here, add-ins can be distributed from a central location that is authorized and protected to users world-wide.
  • JMP's technical support is second to none. They take questions by phone and email. I usually send email knowing that I'll get an informed response within 24 hours and if they cannot resolve a problem they proactively keep you informed about what is being done to resolve the issue or answer your question.
  • JMP does a lot and can be intimidating for new users. New users and their managers need to understand that it’s unlikely that anyone will use all of JMP's capabilities in their work. Some uses are very limited. But it’s not important how much of the whole JMP product and capabilities you use but rather what use of the product contributes.
  • We have seen time and again where organizations up their game analytically because they are using JMP. Though JMP makes these methods accessible by way of visualization and interactivity, there is still a learning curve involved. For example, JMP does a great job with time series analyses allowing manufacturers to find cyclical patterns that lead to yield hits. Using it in JMP is easy but engineers need to understand the concepts behind it to exploit it.
  • JMP data tables are proprietary and I'm not sure that any other software can open native JMP files. Perhaps some competing products can but I would have to bet that some aspects of the data, particularly saved analyses, table variables and formulas would not come across.
  • JMP Scripting Language (JSL) is incredibly powerful. With it you are actually working with JMP's building blocks in terms of analytics and in terms of how reports and dialogs are put together. I personally think that every JMP user should have some active expertise with JSl but building integrated analytical systems will have to be left to those who have the time and talent to focus on it daily.
  • JMP forces you to change the way you approach analysis and that can be a difficult transition for some but it leads to some powerful capabilities once you make it through. Most analytic tools are focused on the analytic techniques and terms and use those names in their menus. JMP on the other hand, focuses on the data and the questions you’re asking: What is my Y and what’s my X? What’s the relationship between them? This way the emphasis is on the problem at hand, not deciding on a technique for analysis.
Many organizations have seen their analytical capabilities, and the results from them, plateau. Of these, we've observed, that most of them didn't appreciate that they could do (even) better. These companies should definitely consider JMP. Any company that is research-based can benefit from accelerating their research, learning more in less time, effort and cost, with JMP's tools. Basically, any organization that is hungry enough for improvement to seek out better ways is suitable for JMP. Those who are happy with their current performance are not likely to consider the changes, though they were not major impediments by our clients, required.

JMP is being used daily as one of the key tools from the engineering tool box for my engineering department at a semiconductor manufacturing company in east coast of US. It is being used by my department, and it has caught attention from other departments as well. I will be glad to see it being used across the whole organization. I highly recommended the analyze and graph functional modules which help me to address volume production issues using multiple variant correlation and visualization of large data set.
  • JMP is a column based data analysis tool, and its graph function is interactive, which help me to pin point the parts which had issues, and find the root cause quicker.
  • JMP can handle seas of data, with no limitation on number of rows or columns. This is important for me since large data sets are key for me to look at trending, and view the data as a whole with connection to each other.
  • I liked the SAS JMP on-line webcast programs, which help me and my team to develop the skills that are needed and answer questions that seems to be small but can make a difference in data analysis efficiency and quality.
  • It would helpful if JMP can provide more case-based demo, besides sample Data. Because based on the statistical nature of the data, different ways of analysis can be applied, to generate meaningful results and conclusion.
  • For example, Cpk calculation, for two-sided Spec vs one-sided Spec.
  • It turns out, some Cpk was calculated by JMP can have negative values, which do not make sense,f or process capability analysis.
JMP is well suited for statistical analysis. However, when underlying physics or science is needed to better understand or simulate the observation or to provide prediction by modeling, JMP seems to lack the flexibility for end-user to provide boundary conditions or pre-defined rules to rule out impossibles in the predictive modeling.

  • Very powerful visual analytical tool
  • Easy capability for creating reports in HTML
  • Integration with R, Matlab
  • Statistical modeling capability
  • Very good documentation on well established solutions
  • Scripting capability is very poor, they have introduced application builder to do GUI based application but still needs more flexibility in terms of scripting as its lot tedious to do simple things
  • Need improved documentation on features that are newer
  • Its not easy to develop certain analysis and takes a while to screen out data and build it
  • Need some more Data mining and Machine learning algorithms
Do you need Visual Analytics?
Is your data noisy?
Are you new to statistics and analysis? Good Documentation
Do you need for DOE? Easy for simple DOE and modeling cases
Do you need to interface with other softwares? Capability to interface with other programs like R, Matlab, Excel etc...

Do you need to automate repetitive tasks? Scripting is not friendly and needs improvement
Do you need to build an application? Application Builder is a good addition but at infancy phase
Do you need for data mining? Data Mining algorithms not yet sophisticated

JMP is a software suite utilized by a handful of engineers in our Semiconductor manufacturing facility. It competes directly with another alternative that many have converted to but I have found JMP to be much more intuitive and friendlier to manipulate and analyze data that I specifically promoted and was granted a user license. We have scores of data on our products that we manufacture, the process is extremely complex and JMP helps to build insight quicker into the problems we face on a daily basis.
  • Semiconductor Manufacturing Process data is not always statistically compatible, meaning classical statistical approaches are insufficient to recognize anomalies and discrepant product that could deteriorate customer satisfaction. Process data often requires an experienced eye to observe the historical trends graphically, and I've come to rely heavily on JMP's ability to simplify graphing while also enabling continued manipulation and analysis of the data through the graphical interface. I can quickly highlight discrepant material, modify the display characteristics, redisplay, update, republish....and the cycle continues until I have a clean set of data that is intuitive and insightful.
  • My JMP use is "ALWAYS" closely tied with MS Excel because raw data manipulation within JMP is rather cumbersome and clunky. The freedom and flexibility that Excel offers allows me to organize the data easier then when I'm ready I export the data set to JMP for analysis. If I didn't have Excel to assist in building the data set, I don't know how long it would take me to become proficient in JMP. Were JMP to adopt the flexible features that Excel has for housing data and manipulating arrays, then I wouldn't even need to use Excel...the distinct advantage in my mind of JMP over Excel is its analytic and graphic features but JMP's limitation is its rigid requirements for data structure and the high hurdle for common Excel users to work with data in the bounds JMP requires.
  • I do many repetitive tasks in JMP, I wish the ability to build a script from my operations was easier and more intuitive. Many users are either unaware of the scripting capabilities or afraid to begin learning about the features because the learning curve is too steep. Some efforts to cater the power of scripting to the less astute audience will build more loyal followers and further widen the customer base.
  • As I reflected over the use of JMP from the past several years, I realized that JMP is usually a tool used in tandem with another. The more independent JMP can become to perform more tasks the less I rely on secondary software applications and ultimately the greater cost advantage for the organization because it could reduce licensing fees for software tools that support its operations. Typically I must query a database for the data, manipulate it with MS Excel, then export the queried information into JMP for analysis and display...this is 3 sets of software that I must navigate before I can actually make a decision on what the data is telling me. If JMP could query a database better, allow easier data manipulation then an organization would only need to purchase the JMP license as a complete solution to its organizational needs.
In a specific organization, when data/information is queried from a database, is the data organized in a structure that is compatible with the formats required by JMP?

We use JMP as a statistical tool to manage data. It is used across our department and multiple other departments across the university. JMP provides us with a powerful tool to conduct any number of meaningful statistical analyses on any kind of data. We use JMP to provide powerful, interactive visuals for presentation and publishing purposes.
  • JMP can handle a seemingly infinite amount of data.
  • The statistical tests included in JMP are all-inclusive.
  • The learning curve can be very, very steep.
It is perfectly suited for statistical analyses, but I would not recommend JMP for users who do not have a statistical background. As previously stated, the learning curve is exceptionally steep, and I think that it would prove to be too steep for those without statistical background/knowledge.

JMP modules are used as an overall statistical package for data analyses.
  • Easy to use (intuitive for engineers)
  • Credible and up-to-date statistical methods / techniques implemented in the modules
  • One-stop-shop for all my statistical analysis needs
  • Reliability module: CDF plot with interval failure points shown
  • Reliability module: Recommendation of best models to use
  • Table's ease of use to allow simple spreadsheet operations. Example: average values of every 3 cells
Reliability module: Parametric survival analysis platform is powerful, however, the translation to common physics of failure models can be unclear. Proper documentation and live pop-up explanations will be very helpful. Often times, I have to rerun the same data sets in Reliasoft ALTA Pro to confirm my interpretation of the parameters is correct.

JMP is used by many departments within the organization. At the application engineer level, it is mainly used for efficient design of experiments and experimental data analysis and visualization. It is also used at all levels of engineering and R&D as a data visualization, statistical analysis, MVA analysis and model fitting tool.
  • JMP's fitting of complex multivariable models by use of effect screening and effect leverage techniques can often allow complex convolved responses to be understood
  • JMP's design of experiments (DOE) applications allows efficient experimental setup and analysis
  • JMP's ease of use and suite of visualization capabilities
  • While JMP provides scripting for automation, I have found the scripting language to be non-obvious at times and the documentation historically for scripting to be inadequate. For these situations, I often turn to Matlab instead.
  • Since all levels of engineers use it at some level I wish the program would, at times, better protect the user from themselves especially when it comes to determining statisical differences. While program gives all revelant metrics to user so that an educated user can know the qulity of their analysis, the attempt of program to simplify all those metrics into simple visualization can sometime lead the uneducate user into inaccurate conclusions.
  • With fitting model to complex data, you will often go through many variants of model effect assumptions to attempt to fit data. It would be beneficial if there was better way to coalesce these model fit attempts into a simple summary to more quickly drive to the optimum model.
JMP is a powerful data visualization tool. It likewise is a powerful DOE tool. For these applications, I think it is appropriate for all. As you dive deeper into JMP capabilities, I think it becomes more appropriate for user to have at least some formal training in statistics.

JMP is used in Research and develepment department and the full engineering staff. The software addresses data manuipulation and analysis for experimental design and process improvements.
  • JMP has a good menu driven 'wizard like' method for data setup and collection. Base analysis is easy to obtain and review.
  • Large data sets from external sources can be loaded into JMP for tracking and review. Good method for an analysis engine coupled to database management
  • Canned routines are easier to use and less intimidating than using the full SAS packages and modules.
  • Design of experiment software is sometimes difficult to manipulated and modify for screening or surface state analysis.
  • Canned graphics are a good starting point but adaption for presentations or memos is not the best format. 3D graphics can be powerful but they are very difficult to navigate
  • Higher orders of statistical analysis and regression is desired.
  • I would love to see an integration or handshake from JMP to the SAS platform
Data size and complexity is the driver for choice of an analysis application. For example, a thousand line by 150 column data set is great for excel or a spreadsheet. If the data is in the 25,000 line range and only a 100 columns then use JMP. For larger and more complex relational databases my recommendation is for SAS.

JMP is used as main statistical software to support Quality by Design implementation within generic R&D (DOE, specifications assessment, stability trending) and as main statistical tool to support Operations with product robustness initiative (SPC, Process Capability etc). It helps to optimize processes and formulations, find robust operating conditions and assess product robustness, explore interactively 'what if' scenarios..
  • Design of Experiments: the Custom Design platform is a great asset for R&D; it fits the design to practical problem and not the opposite.
  • Stability and Degradation: Platform was a great tool to assess products shelf-life and specifications within few clicks. The platform is customized to suit pharma industry based on ICH guidelines.
  • Monte-Carlo simulation is a great interactive platform to assess product robustness based on developed model and explore different scenarios to find the sweet spot and global optimum that is also cost effective.
  • Easier manipulation between multiple tables
  • Once in a while the software would shut-down without letting saving the file
  • More pharma customised features
JMP Licenses procedure could be streamlined.

I use JMP in my current position very sparingly. The main usage for JMP is plotting longitude and latitude coordinates and using them to display bubble charts of sales by state. During my education however we utilized JMP in more extensive roles including clustering, regression, neural networks, and other more advanced analysis techniques. In my current position I am the only user of JMP. I have also slightly used JMP for survival analysis, but switched to R during my analysis.
  • Bubble charts and plotting longitude and latitude coordinates.
  • I like the graphics it is capable of producing more than other analysis software.
  • The point and click environment can be very useful and helpful for some analysts.
  • With JMP being a SAS product, I would like to see an ability to do programming in JMP. While the point and click environment can be nice for some items, being able to code analysis can be much more efficient and timely for some users.
  • When outputting bubble maps that have been displayed on a geographical map the labels do not lineup on the outputted graphic.
  • The output for certain analysis such as regression and neural networks can be difficult to understand at times. The layout and design for displaying model statistics makes finding certain key items difficult.
JMP, like other point and click analysis environments, are very useful to users with little or no programming experience. A typical analyst who has experience in data analysis would much prefer to code their analysis programs than using a point and click environment. However for users without a strong analysis background who are using JMP for simple purposes, the point and click environment can be very user friendly for them. But as I mentioned, the inability to code can deter more advanced users.

I used JMP during my Graduate internship at Intel Corp. I worked in the Technology development Quality & Reliability Department under Manufacturing. JMP was and I'm sure it is still used extensively everyday in order to analyze high throughput data of reliability tests and be able to compute any type of statistic needed. The main business problem addressed is in being able to support the file access of huge csv data files of 5GB of data -- this is a challenge since no good product can do this except JMP only if the VM or laptop has enough RAM resources allocated. Thanks to JMP, daily tasks of statistical analysis were able to be performed. In addition, the command line utilities of JMP were used to customize outputs during batch script processes.
  • Command line support: a great way to customize reports and analyze data
  • Excellent and Fast statistical analysis: the algorithms used to compute stats are extremely fast and accurate.
  • High-throughput file support: JMP has the capability and support to be able to analyze and compute statistics of files with huge amounts of data.
  • Graphs: the graphs need to be more flexible for reporting.
  • The saving of the graph images should have better support to export in different image extensions -- vector images would be great!
  • The JMP tutorials are really helpful but there should be a greater library of video tutorials. Maybe the JMP community could contribute here?
High throughput data analysis that need all kinds of statistics and graphs

We use JMP to create large amounts of graphs in a very limited amount of time. We also use it to create more complicated graphs that are difficult or impossible to do in excel (3D graphs). We are the only department that uses it.
We often use DDE in SAS and VBA in excel to automate the creation of graphs, and occasionally choose that option over JMP because people are more familiar with it. An advantage to JMP is that the graphs don't like excel graphs.
It's also useful to have open during a presentation, because if someone wants to see a relationship between variables, JMP can create a graph of those variables quickly.
  • Graph automation (has a script system similar to VBA)
  • Interfaces very well with SAS
  • User friendly
  • Complex graphs
  • Excellent customer service
  • Can create and change graphs quickly
  • Expensive
  • Difficult to manipulate data in JMP; relies heavily on SAS
  • Can be difficult to understand what data is required in certain graphs
I think it is less appropriate for professional looking printed reports. If you are looking for a tool to give to non-programmers so they can look at relationships themselves without bothering you, or are looking to automate graphs, this would work very well for you. It would also be useful if you wanted to make 3D graphs that can be embedded, because they can be spun with the cursor. Of course, you cannot do this in a printed report.
