Overall Satisfaction with IBM SPSS

I am the only one I am aware of who uses SPSS for data analysis. It allows me to calculate statistics of dataset easily. So it saves me time.
  • Easy to use, the user interface is intuitive to me. Can be suitable for entry level analysts.
  • Easy to learn, I can drag and drop items in the interface. User friendly.
  • Does not have very technical features in R and other sophisticated statistics software.
  • Sometimes I experience lags to load large datasets.
  • Data visualization on SPSS can be improved now that we have Tableau as a competitor for data visualization
SPSS saves me time on getting basic stats of dataset. Otherwise, I'd have to calculate through Excel, which takes more time and is not streamlined.
It saves me time on basic data calculation, so I could focus more on the analysis part rather than the calculation part of projects.
SAS is more sophisticated and can be made more streamlined with SQL. SPSS has easier and user friendlier user experiences.
SPSS is suited for entry-level analysts and even managers who prefer to get a little more technical. It is not suitable for sophisticated stats analysis with a large data set.
