Overall Satisfaction with JMP Pro

JMP Pro license is available at no charge for most of the engineering departments, statistical department, and business school for both the Windows and Mac platform. Faculty, staff, and students have been using it to do industrial engineering, and/or business analytics. Students get familiar with this tool in the early years of their undergraduate studies and these experiences help them get prepared for their industrial or academic jobs.
  • JMP Pro does have a lot of features and functionalities that other similar software do not provide. No prior coding experience is needed since JMP pro offers basic and complex analyses by just clicking.
  • The interface is intuitive. You can see how your results change in a plot by simply looking at the parameters in JMP Pro. You do not need to export the updated results to excel to plot again.
  • A tremendous amount of very good tutorials available for beginners.
  • Datasets saved as csv, xlsx, dat can be easily pulled into JMP Pro.
  • JMP Pro is a really powerful tool for doing statistical analysis. Although the click environment does not require coding experience, new learners will still need to take a long time to know the parameters in the function before performing any analysis.
  • The output from JMP Pro analysis (regression analysis) is not always easy to understand, especially when the parameters are programmed differently with the other similar software.
  • It helped me put together meteorological data from different locations to show which area is the optimal location for wind energy.
The intuitive interface JMP Pro offers is more interactive than R studio, but since coding is not required in JMP Pro, programming analysis in R studio is more convenient in some aspects. JMP Pro is able to quickly analyze multiple variables and produce reasonable outputs and models, which is valuable for users doing data analysis.
JMP Pro is perfectly suited for statistical analysis but users should have some statistical knowledge before using it since there may be some terms/functions in the software that are not widely used in other fields. No prior coding experience is needed to use JMP Pro. However, most people doing data processing would prefer to code their analysis.
