Overall Satisfaction with IBM SPSS
We use SPSS for all our data and statistical analysis needs. Most of our critical analysis and reporting systems are driven by SPSS programs. We also use SPSS for ad-hoc modeling and data requests. In addition, we are able to automate our systems which improves the data integrity and speed of our work.
We have also analyzed and used products such as Minitab, R, Matlab, Q, Statistica, SAS and Stata. SPSS compares very well to them and has strengths and weaknesses just as any other analysis software.
IBM SPSS is well suited for statistical and data analysis and has features comparable or better than other statistical packages. You can also use it efficiently for building analysis and reporting systems. It is not as well suited for new/novice users doing basic statistics, as there are better/easier options out there.
