Top rule

SPSS Modeler Subscription is a data science platform that helps you build accurate predictive models quickly and deliver predictive intelligence to individuals, groups, systems, and the enterprise. It provides a range of advanced algorithms and analysis techniques, including geospatial analysis, many types of machine learning algorithms, ad hoc queries, and visualization. Use it to consistently make better decisions, from the desktop or within operational systems.

The SPSS Modeler Subscription Text Analytics component helps data scientists and analysts to convert unstructured text data into structured data or groupings for further analysis. The software combines linguistics, predeveloped concepts/categories, and an extensive customization capability that helps end users to obtain an analysis that is suitable for their data and business cases.

Around 80% of data held within an organization is in the form of text documents; for example, reports, web pages, emails, and call center notes. Text is a key factor in enabling an organization to gain a better understanding of their customers' behavior. A system that incorporates NLP can intelligently extract concepts, including compound phrases. Moreover, knowledge of the underlying language allows classification of terms into related groups, such as products, organizations, or people, using meaning and context. As a result, by using SPSS Modeler Subscription Text Analytics, you can quickly determine the relevance of the information to your needs. These extracted concepts and categories can be combined with existing structured data, such as demographics, and applied to modeling in SPSS Modeler's full suite of data science tools to yield better and more-focused decisions.

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
