Overview
Bottom rule

SPSS Modeler is a comprehensive data science platform for professional analysts and data scientists. It includes flexible deployment options, including on premises and private cloud. The platform scales from supporting line-of-business predictive analysis (SPSS Modeler Personal) to enterprise-scale implementation (SPSS Modeler Gold). It brings predictive intelligence to everyday business problems that can help enable front-line employees or systems to make more effective decisions and help improve outcomes.

SPSS Modeler V18.1 can help you:

  • Energize your analytics
    • Continue to embrace and extend open source with emphasis on Python.
    • Leverage open source algorithms designed outside of SPSS Modeler.
    • Save time and effort through usability improvements to make your analytics projects more efficient.
  • Unlock unstructured data
    • Text analytics capabilities have been built specifically for big data environments.
    • Text analytics is now available for Apple Mac users through SPSS Modeler Premium Edition.
  • Integrate IBM offerings and other companies offerings
    • Leverage IBM Decision Optimization on Cloud capabilities within SPSS Modeler V18.1 to enable you to solve complex problems.
    • Connect to and read IBM Weather Company data to help you build more complete data sets and produce more accurate models.

SPSS Modeler V18.1 can scale from desktop deployments to integration within operational systems. This enables organizations to improve their business process and help people or systems consistently make the right decisions to deliver recommended actions at the point of impact. The result is a rapid return on investment and the ability to proactively and repeatedly reduce costs and increase productivity.

SPSS Modeler V18.1 is supported by complementary products, such as SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services V8.1 and SPSS Analytic Server V3.1, that extend its depth and breadth of functions.

Description
Bottom rule

SPSS Modeler V18.1 can help you:

  • Energize your analytics
    • Enables you to continue to embrace and extend open source with emphasis on Python:
      • Expose Python algorithms including: eXtreme gradient boosting (XGBoost), Synthetic Minority Over-sampling Technique (SMOTE) (advanced way of balancing data), and one-class support vector machines (SVM)
      • Convert R nodes to extension nodes that can run either R or Python for Spark.
      • Explicitly import and export data through extensions.
    • Helps save time and effort through usability improvements:
      • Allow certain graphs to be exported as Microsoft™ Office graph objects.
      • Choose which nodes can be seen in any palette, including modeling.
      • Only display nodes supported by SPSS Analytic Server.
      • Auto save (automatically save streams in the background) and auto recover (go back to auto-saved streams in case of a computer crash, application crash, or mandatory reboot).
      • Use single node for partial transpose (change some rows into some columns).
      • Connect to multiple SPSS Analytic Server instances from one SPSS Modeler server.
      • Utilize SPSS Analytic Server performance improvements.
  • Unlock your unstructured data
    • Migrate the back end of text analytics to System i, which is multi-threaded and more scalable. The text analytics processing can also be pushed back to BigInsights®.
    • Add a node to detect the language of the text.
    • Perform text analytics on an Apple Mac.
  • Integrate IBM offerings and other companies' offerings:
    • Capability to run optimization problems directly in Modeler through new optimization node.
      • SPSS Modeler V18.1 will include IBM ILOG® CPLEX® Optimization Studio Community Edition, which provides for optimization up to 1,000 rows of data.
      • With the appropriate license, you can link to the full ILOG CPLEX Optimization Studio edition.
    • Ability to read in data from The Weather Company®
    • Ability to connect to Hortonworks using BigSQL
    • Capability for SQL optimization support for Vertica
    • Ability for SPSS Modeler to read from Apache Hive tables using Open Database Connectivity (ODBC)
    • Support for Huawei FusionInsight as a Hadoop distribution for SPSS Analytic Server

Notes:

  • Effective with SPSS Analytic Server V3.1, the pricing model changes from total storage capacity in Hadoop cluster to total number of data nodes in Hadoop cluster. The license term changed from Resource Value Unit (conversion table VUE027A) to Virtual Server. New parts number for the new node-based pricing will be available for new customers, and existing parts number for RVU storage-based pricing will be restricted for existing customer only.
  • Effective with SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services V8.1, IBM DB2® is bundled with this offering. DB2 technology offers data protection, scalability, and performance for all its database-intensive operations. It is designed to manage data more effectively and efficiently. Improved availability is delivered through enhancements such as online, automated database reorganization. In addition, increased scalability and the ability to leverage the latest in server technology helps deliver increased performance of backup and recovery processes.
  • Social Network Analysis and entity analytics are not available in SPSS Modeler V18.1. Analytical Decision Management V18 is included with IBM SPSS Modeler Gold 18.1 and requires Microsoft Internet Explorer 11.
  • Japanese is not a supported language for the text analytics capability in either IBM SPSS Modeler Desktop V18.1 or IBM SPSS Modeler Server V18.1.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom 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.
