Why SPSS software?

The IBM® SPSS® software platform offers advanced statistical analysis, a vast library of machine learning algorithms, text analysis, open source extensibility, integration with big data and seamless deployment into applications. 

Its ease of use, flexibility and scalability make SPSS accessible to users of all skill levels. What’s more, its suitable for projects of all sizes and levels of complexity, and can help you and your organization find new opportunities, improve efficiency and minimize risk.

Within the SPSS software family of products, SPSS Statistics supports a top-down, hypothesis testing approach to your data while SPSS Modeler exposes patterns and models hidden in data through a bottom-up, hypothesis generation approach.

SPSS Modeler is also available on IBM Cloud Pak® for Data, a containerized data and AI platform that enables you to build and run predictive models anywhere — on any cloud and on premises. It can be added as a service by itself, or it is included as part of IBM Watson® Studio Premium, a suite of software tools designed to help you accelerate the building and scaling of predictive models.
