JMP: The Most Powerful Statistical Tool On the Market
Score 9 out of 101
Overall Satisfaction with 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.
- IBM SPSS,Excel
We actually use both JMP and IBM SPSS, but I think JMP's complexity lends itself to more in-depth statistical analyses. SPSS is designed for that as well, but we tend to use it more for quicker analyses, and we have found that JMP is far more powerful.
JMP is unquestionably central to our research operation, and we use it literally on a daily basis. All of our publications in recent memory have been driven by JMP, and I do not see that changing in the future.
JMP is used across the department, and I imagine that it is used in many departments across the university for research.
We share JMP files through other file sharing methods, like Google Drive and Dropbox, because the sharing capabilities are not the strongest.
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.

Evaluating JMP and Competitors
Once you figure out the bells and whistles/ins and outs of JMP, it becomes an intuitive, powerful tool. However, the learning curve is very steep; I think the product might be borderline unusable for those without at least a basic understanding of inferential statistics. However, even if you have a statistics background, the learning curve is still steep due to a confusing user interface, a weak help/search tool (at least within the program for Mac users; the online help is very useful), and a general lack of intuitiveness.
