Technical and customer support is great. The total cost of ownership of the product is substantially better than other products.
It is important to consider the total cost of ownership of the software deployment in additional to functionalities and features.
A lot of statistical functionalities
It may not be easy for non-technical users to understand all the functions offered by the software.
Improve the data visualization of the software to make it more attractive to non-technical users.
Work with the vendor more closely and do not try to implement on your own.
Fast responses to questions

very responsive organization from a customer service perspective
look ahead 2 years 3 years and make the right investment up front.
reporting and dashboardng capabilities with flexibility offered by intergrated programming language
desktop analytics requires support due to complexity of the products capabilites. needs a super user, statistician or data scientist to support.
development environments are additional cost, we think they should be free.
would have bought more modules initally when you have the leverage to negotiate pricing.
supposedly this is an optional comment...cant move on without putting something in the blank. overall rating = satisfied

Love the drag and drop GUI & automatic evaluation of model fit. Great customer service & support from account manager
Easy for non-hardcore stat coders & Easy to iterate different variable & variations for those who can.
Account Rep is very responsive and positive.
Difficulty of getting through any vendor tool's HD.
Process where the data lays, simplify the process to not move data around & use processing power already existing. Help us get to the optimal solution using platforms like TD Aster.
Go do more training --- don't know what you don't know
We upgraded to an enterprise environment and it took a little to make it happen but all is good.

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.
Give Statistica a shot. I know that other vendors such as SAS have the name recognition, but I have found that I can do everything I needed to with Statistica and the overall experience has been better.
It is easy to use and I am able to get results quickly.
Some features were not bundled with Data Miner in the past that I thought should have been comparing similar software from other vendors. This has been addressed recently so I think they are starting to move in the right direction.
The pricing and bundling of the different features has been confusing in the past. I know they are working on this, but I think it is something that they can continue to improve on.
Nothing. We just needed to get over the hump of actually getting a license in-house to show what the software can do.

They have excellent customer service, and they expose the algorithms to a VB code space to build custom processes.
Get good hardware and do a performance test with your dataset. Over 10 Million rows was slow for us.
Flexible, has a decent GUI, good customer service.
Model output options are not as stable as I would like.
MAS server was not up to today's standards.
Buy more license cores.
Lots of algoritms available with good performance of the formulas against benchmarks. We like the flexibility of the coding objects. Visuals are not that great, but that isn't what we bought it for. Adding data to the workbooks is only ok, again, we don't use it for that, we add the data in SQL.
Excellent, support kept us committed during a rough patch of ramp up.
Installations are fast and easy. Upgrades are ok, we had 2 people accidentally upgrade the server from their desktop when the products were going through transition!

Excellent technical solutions experts that eased the implementation process significantly. Sales representative was invested in us.
Develop your user requirements prior to implementation and understand your end-user needs thoroughly.
Ability for user to develop analyses without any coding experience. Graphical models allow for deployment of new analyses without having to undergo significant change process.
User Interface/Graphics can be improved.
