IBM SPSS Modeler Valuable Features
It's a very organized product. It's easy to use.
Even if you look to the IBM SPSS Statistics, it is the same procedure, you can categorize data clearly that is nominal or scale. Therefore, you can analyze it in a simple way. This is different than most of the other software. IBM Modeler is really organized and it has too many automated methods that can be used easily even for the people who do not have a lot of experience.
I've been following the progress since SPSS was bought by IBM and transferred from Modeler to IBM SPSS Modeler. I'm recognizing the number of nuggets or techniques added to the software itself.
I used to give training courses in this procedure. I try to approach it like driving a car. If you drive one car, you can drive any other car. When IBM is so very organized, I find that, if you used it, you will learn how to choose the correct Data Science or Data Mining techniques. This will give you the ability to use the knowledge gained on other platforms. Most of the other solutions are trying to imitate IBM Modeler.
You have a lot of techniques and you have to use the proper techniques based on your needs, however, even some governmental places ask me for help. Sometimes they need association techniques, or clustering techniques, however, no doubt, you have to use the protective care modeling techniques, which are currently known as supervised modeling or regression techniques.
There are so many ways of analyzing data. If you have a huge amount of data with so many variables, you can use the solution to understand the learnings behind the data. Based on the objective of your research, you have a lot of techniques at your disposal.
The initial setup was simple.
The solution can scale.
The stability is good.View full review »

I think the tool is very helpful in terms of, when you work on a foothold, you can compare how many people came into the center between fiscal periods. You take two quarters and compare them and this tool is ideal because it gives you a lot of visibility on the before and after. It provides graphs for you to actually see how the impact has been on the financial side.
It's a user-friendly tool.View full review »
I like the automation and that this product is very organized and easy to use. I think these features can be found in many products but I like IBM Modeler because it's very clear about how to use it. There are many other good features and I discovered something that I haven't seen in other software. It's the ability to use two different techniques, one is the regression technique and the other is the neural network. With IBM you can combine them in one node. It improves the model which is a big advantage.View full review »
The most valuable features of the IBM SPSS Modeler are visual programming, you don't have to write any code, and it is easy to use. 90 to 95 percent of the use cases, you don't have to fine-tune anything. If you want to do something deeper, for example, create a better neural network, then you have to go into the features and try to fine-tune them. However, the default selection which is made by the tool, it's very practical and works well.
Overall the solution is very powerful.View full review »

It's a very good and reasonably priced solution. As a data analyst, the data aggregation is very good. It's a very quick method to merge the data. If you can use the data site, they offer you about 20 different analytic modes. It's simple and precise and it accelerates the data.View full review »
