Comprehensive data analysis capabilities with a user-friendly interface, providing an efficient and reliable platform for researchers and analysts
I believe that offering short-term SPSS licenses, perhaps when customer sourcing is available, could make it more affordable. These licenses shouldn't include features tailored for universities or large sales organizations. Instead, they could offer discounts or additional facilities for smaller entities to access the software. In developing countries, it would be beneficial to provide certain features to users at no cost initially, while also customizing pricing options. For example, offering basic features to the first hundred users can help them become familiar with the software and its capabilities. This approach encourages users to upgrade to higher tiers as they become more experienced and require additional functionality.

Easy to use and has a huge community
RapidMiner interacts well with data. It is valuable, easy to use, and easy to look at, and that is awesome.  It is easy to use and has a huge community that I can rely on for help. Moreover, it is interactive.  In terms of the UI and SaaS, the user interface with KNIME is more appealing than…

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"They have many existing algorithms that we can use and use effectively to analyze and understand how to put our data to work to improve what we do."
"The best part is that they have an algorithm handbook, so you can open it up and understand how it works, and if it is useful, this is very important."
"The software offers consistency across multiple research projects helping us with predictive analytics capabilities."
"It offers very good visualization."
"The SPSS interface is very accessible and user-friendly. It's really easy to get information in it. I've shared it with experts and beginners, and everyone can navigate it."
"The learning curve to using this product is not steep. The program is appropriate for those who do not have a lot of background in programming, yet have to perform basic statistical analysis."
"Some of the most valuable features that we are using with some business models are machine learning algorithms, statistical models given to us by the business, and getting data from the database or text files."
"The most valuable features mainly include factor analysis, correlation analysis, and geographic analysis."
"The best part of RapidMiner is efficiency."
"The most valuable feature of RapidMiner is that it is code free. It is similar to playing with Lego pieces and executing after you are finished to see the results. Additionally, it is easy to use and has interesting utilities when preparing the data. It has a utility to automatically launch a series of models and show the comparisons. When finished with the comparisons you can select the best one, and deploy it automatically."
"The most valuable feature is what the product sets out to do, which is extracting information and data."
"Using the GUI, I can have models and algorithms drag and drop nodes."
"RapidMiner is a no-code machine learning tool. I can install it on my local machine and work with smaller datasets. It can also connect to databases, allowing me to build models directly on the data stored there. RapidMiner offers a wider range of operators than other tools like Dataiku, making it a better option for my needs."
"The data science, collaboration, and IDN are very, very strong."
"I like not having to write all solutions from code. Being able to drag and drop controls, enables me to focus on building the best model, without needing to search for syntax errors or extra libraries."
"Scalability is not really a concern with RapidMiner. It scales very well and can be used in global implementations."
 

Cons

"If there is any self-generation data collection plan (DCP), it would be helpful in gathering data. It would also be useful if there is a function to scale it up to, let's say, UiPath and have it consolidate and integrate into a UiPath solution."
"IBM SPSS Statistics could improve the visual outputs where you are producing, for example, a graph for a company board of directors, or an advert."
"Improvements are needed in the user interface, particularly in terms of user-friendliness."
"In some cases, the product takes time to load a large dataset. They could improve this particular area."
"Each algorithm could be more adaptable to some industry-specific areas, or, in some cases, adapted for maintenance."
"The solution needs more planning tools and capabilities."
"SPSS slows down the computer or the laptop if the data is huge; then you need a faster computer."
"I would like SPSS to improve its integration with other data-filing IBM tools. I also think its duration with data, utilization, and graphics could be better."
"It would be helpful to have some tutorials on communicating with Python."
"RapidMiner isn't cheap. It's a complete solution, but it's costly."
"The server product has been getting updated and continues to be better each release. When I started using RapidMiner, it was solid but not easy to set up and upgrade."
"About twenty-five percent of my problems involve image processing, and I found RapidMiner lacking in this domain. While we work on OCR and similar tasks, RapidMiner hasn't been as engaged in that field as other models. Some other models also support email processing, but RapidMiner doesn't offer this feature."
"One challenge I encountered while implementing RapidMiner was the lack of documentation. Since there aren't as many users, finding resources to learn the tool was initially difficult. To overcome this hurdle, I believe RapidMiner could improve by providing more tutorials tailored for new users."
"RapidMiner can improve deep learning by enhancing the features."
"Improve the online data services."
"The price of this solution should be improved."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"SPSS is an expensive piece of software because it's incredibly complex and has been refined over decades, but I would say it's fairly priced."
"More affordable training for new staff members."
"I rate the tool's pricing a five out of ten."
"The price of this solution is a little bit high, which was a problem for my company."
"We think that IBM SPSS is expensive for this function."
"The pricing of the modeler is high and can reduce the utility of the product for those who can not afford to adopt it."
"The price of IBM SPSS Statistics could improve."
"It's quite expensive, but they do a special deal for universities."
"The client only has to pay the licensing costs. There are not any maintenance or hidden costs in addition to the license."
"Although we don't pay licensing fees because it is being used within the university, my understanding is that the cost is between $5,000 and $10,000 USD per year."
"I used an educational license for this solution, which is available free of charge."
"For the university, the cost of the solution is free for the students and teachers."
"I'm not fully aware of RapidMiner's price because we had licenses provided, but from my analysis, it's moderately priced, not too high or too low. It's worth the investment."
