Overall Satisfaction with IBM SPSS
We use IBM SSPS both as a department wide tool and within our smaller lab group. It is primarily used to handle larger statistical analysis problems than can be handled with more simple programs such as Microsoft Excel. The geospatial aspects of it are especially useful and are accessed very regularly.
- RStudio, RapidMiner Studio, Maplewave, KNIME Analytics Platform, Microsoft R (formerly Revolution R), DataRobot and Alteryx Analytics
Overall, IBM SSPS outperforms competitors in almost every arena. It's ability to both perform statistical analysis and geospatial analysis is unrivaled. Additionally, it is superior in handling large or complex datasets over many of the other similar programs. The only program that does a better job in spatial analysis would be ArcGIS.
IBM SSPS is one of the best geospatial analysis tools on the market, possibly only exceeded by ArcGIS. It is very good with handling large and complicated datasets and manipulating these for statistical purposes. Unfortunately it can be a little non-user friendly and takes quite a bit of time to get used to.
