I like the user-friendly UI. The free academic edition for students is a big plus. The semi-drag and drop interface is very easy to use, and very beginner friendly. The tool is very easy to learn and master, with very little knowledge of statistics. Report generation is also very easy

I inherited the system from a departing Quality Engineer. There were a considerable number of tools developed and deployed in the environment. I think our challenge was that the departing user was an advanced user, and when reports went down, STATISTICA support was generally unable to help us resolve issues without repeated contact. Being an R user myself, I was particularly frustrated at what I saw as uninspiring documentation for the product. It was unfortunate not to be able to find a user community on open websites like stack overflow. Going to the statistica headquarters for training mostly reinforced these impressions despite the considerable capabilities of the software. To be fair, my own companies unwillingness to further invest in product was an obstacle to it's continuing use. But the obstacles already mentioned were of greater impact on what has become a decline in the use of the product.

We are in a POC stage but the roll out was pretty easy as compared to SAS

Technical and customer support is great. The total cost of ownership of the product is substantially better than other products.

I have always appreciated the open platform that Statistica uses. Most tasks can be completed with the built in functionality of the GUI interface, but I like the option to use Statistica Visual Basic macros to control the software. The workspaces make it possible to create repeatable processes without knowing any coding language. I like the integration with R and am excited to try out the new Python scripting capabilities. I really like the automated data preparation functionality. Overall I feel like Statistica helps me be more efficient in solving problems. The customer service has always been excellent.

They have excellent customer service, and they expose the algorithms to a VB code space to build custom processes.

Excellent technical solutions experts that eased the implementation process significantly. Sales representative was invested in us.
