SPSS is a cloud-based data analysis engine that helps individuals and enterprises by providing statistical foresight to improve efficiency across the business. Designed for businesses of all sizes, it offers solutions including fraud mitigation, risk management and enterprise data offloading.
SPSS enables optimization of hiring processes through big data and machine-learning algorithms. Its database management module allows users to scale transaction processes and store information as structured and unstructured data. It provides additional services such as business intelligence, predictive analytics and financial performance oversight.
SPSS provides data governance and enables businesses to build integration tools to replicate information. Further, Its SPSS modeler module helps users to manage complete data science cycle. Support is extended via phone, email and documentation and pricing is available on request.

I used this software for Market Research related applications and this helped me quickly complete the tests and save them as per how I wanted it.
In the projects I used it for, it gave out some interesting results and takeaways which helped in business planning.
1. It literally covers just so many options of tests, from regression to anova and much more.
2. It's like a one stop destination for all queries related to data
3. Can handle massive amounts of data and inputs
1. A manual/tips section within the software could have eased my learning curve to an extent.
2. UI/UX can be improved
3. High cost

This is the software that I use the most for my work and, even if at times I have to struggle a little to perform "new things", I always find a way. I managed to automate many many tasks and I have reached a very high level of productivity, meaning that I can click a button, let the computer run all nights, and the morning after I find all the jobs done.
The ability to perform almost all easy and complex statistical analysys without writing code AND the possibility to automate simple and complex tasks by actually writing code. This software is huge and it supports a very large set of feautures.
This software is a milestone for statisticians of all over the world. I've been using it for more than 30 years. This means that this software is aging more and more, and perhaps it needs a faster modernization cycle than the current.
With SPSS it is possible to collect data, create statistics, analyze management decisions and much more. Gives the opportunity of doing complex analysis and take on prediction models.
The capacity of solving problems of applied statistics by brute force or by trying thousands of combinations to finally stay with what is believed to be the best for use.
The importance of capture and analyze data to create tables and graphs with complex data.
Its ability to manage large volumes of data and carrying out text analysis amog other formats.
Being able to use the statistical software, with descriptive statistics such as tabulation and crossover frequencies, and correlation tests.
The program allows you to take your data and easily create a wide variety of visual effects such as radial boxplots and density graphs.
In more complex programs you need to have programming knowledge, as well as to make the most laborious calculations.
In statistics, often contradictory results can be obtained between different tests.
It does not provide the expected results in the expected time.
It sometimes leads to unnecessary sophistication by allowing the use of complex techniques to answer simple questions. If the user does not have previous experience using SPSS or if their statistical knowledge is not up to date, it is difficult to understand which options to select. The results reports contain an excessive level of information.

After being introduced to SPSS about 10 years ago I have never used any other similar product. I have even helped colleagues who use a different program with their analyses by saving their data to a USB, using SPSS in my office, and providing them with a hard copy of the results as well as the SPSS input/output data. Typically, they want to know how to get their hands on a copy of SPSS.
SPSS is a phenomenal resource for data analysis be it for an advanced statistician or a student learning basic research methodology. The program is designed to run very simple analyses (mean, mode, median, SD, T-Tests) to complex theoretical modeling in order to identify and name IV's and DV's. SPSS provides reader-friendly and exhaustive help within the program, as well as live help if needed (which, in my experience is not very often). I love the options that I can add to the output such as graphs, charts, histograms, and what specific data means based on what I want analyzed. Much easier to use that other programs of a similar nature, which means I spend less time asking a colleague in the Math Department if I am using the most appropriate analysis based on the data collected. Also, I appreciate how easy it is to copy and paste tables and images into a text document.
Until there is a technology that allows one to immediately "download" large and complex bodies of information into the brain, I have little criticism for SPSS. If I am in deep water and do not fully understand what the "Help" section is telling me, I simply step backward until I reach a level that I do understand and move forward from there. Kind of like teaching myself. It is unreasonable to blame a program for my own limitations.

I have used it to analyze data collected from market research for the services I offer. I am able to then make informed decisions from the trends I observe through the analyses.
As a student of the social sciences, I was expected to conduct research and calculate appropriate statistics in order to draw accurate conclusions. I became overwhelmed by the complex nature of these calculations. I was relieved to discover that, in the real world, I was not expected to calculate t-tests, ANOVA, chi-square (and countless others) manually. I remember having several aha moments during my Data Analysis course as we were taught the software step-by-step. This software has since become a mainstay in my personal and professional life. I once used it to analyze upwards of 300 questionnaires and was blown away at how easily and quickly I was able to compare the data. There were 6 demographic questions and I was able to breakdown responses based on each classification. It offers a wealth of statistical capabilities at the touch of a button.
It is intimidating at first. It is also rather expensive.
