Overall Satisfaction with IBM SPSS Modeler

Our company has 20+ years of developing solutions based on SPSS tools, one of them is IBM SPSS Modeler. In our experience, we have seen companies using Modeler across the whole organization to support critical business process. The versatility of the tool and easy deployment make it a first choice in organizations from Government to Retail, Finance, and Academics. Being able to reduce churn, to retain customers, forecast sales and inventory stock all within a friendly and powerful user interface is something that customers are really looking forward when it comes to accelerating ROI.
  • GUI is really well accomplished and friendly, almost everyone with little investment in training can take advantage of the tool.
  • Escalability, you can grow your investment in licensing according to your actual needs, from an annual authorized user, to perpetual concurrent and Big Data and Machine Learning capabilities.
  • Open Sorce Ready: take leverage of all your developments made in R or Python and deployment all over the organization even with the user who isn´t used to code.
  • Some Analyses aren't there out of the box but can be added through open languages like R and Python.
  • Graphs could be better.
  • Unable to read data stored in OLAP databases
  • Being able to start analytics oriented management and decision taking in organizations.
  • Reduce times related to implementation and training in projects.
  • A single platform can be used for all analytical process
When it comes to investigation and descriptive we have found SPSS Statistics to be the tool of choice, but when it comes to projects with large and several datasets SPSS Modeler has been picked from our customers.
Modeler is well suited for Retail, Credit Scoring, Telcos, Government. And less suited when it comes to transactional environments.
