Discover patterns and trends in structured or unstructured data more easily, using a unique visual interface supported by advanced analytics. Model outcomes and understand what factors influence them so you can take advantage of opportunities and mitigate risks.
IBM® SPSS® Modeler is available as two editions to support your data mining projects. Both editions are available for desktop-based and client-server deployment.
IBM SPSS Modeler Professional enables you to discover hidden relationships in structured data stored in files, operational databases, within your IBM Cognos 8 Business Intelligence environment or in mainframe data systems – and anticipate the outcomes of future interactions. Its simple graphical interface puts the power of data mining in the hands of business users while high-performance capabilities increase analyst productivity.
Create and evaluate sophisticated models easily and visually
Use a variety of pre-built algorithms to create models easily and intuitively. View models interactively and apply a variety of techniques that help you visualize and communicate the results of your analysis efforts.
Choose from an unparalleled breadth of techniques, including:
Extend predictive analytics to new users and new environments
Automatic data preparation and automated modeling makes predictive analytics usable by people other than expert analysts – by business managers or division directors, for example. Integration with IBM technologies introduces new sources of data, new deployment options and new ways of creating and seeing predictive intelligence in action. Full integration with IBM® SPSS® Statistics enables you to use best-in-class statistical analysis and reporting to support your data mining efforts, all from a single interface.
Support for enterprise standards and technologies
In-database mining, SQL pushback and new features for InfoSphere™ Warehouse environments allow organizations to leverage their investments in operational databases better, while enterprise features such as password protection and single sign-on ensure adherence to corporate governance over data and models.
Large amounts of data that could be useful in modeling outcomes and in understanding the factors that drive outcomes is trapped in unstructured, or textual, format. To make your models more accurate, you need to unlock the value of unstructured data from your operational data stores as well as files, e-emails, call center notes, blogs, and RSS feeds. You also need the ability to leverage text in many languages to ensure you include a global perspective.
IBM SPSS Modeler Premium has all of the data mining features included with IBM SPSS Modeler Professional, plus sophisticated text analytics functionality to help you combine structured and unstructured data for the most accurate predictive models possible.
Explore a broader range of data
Access and integrate data from any source, including mainframe data, data from Cognos® Business Intelligence and virtually any type of database, spreadsheet or flat file – such as IBM® SPSS® Statistics, SAS® and Microsoft® Excel® files – as well as textual data and data from Web 2.0 sources, such as RSS feeds, and IBM® SPSS® Data Collection products. No other data mining solution offers this versatility.
Get insights in any language
Identify and extract sentiments and opinions in multiple languages (including Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish) using text link analysis (TLA) technology. The English-language version also includes an interface that supports third-party translation options.
Customize for your needs and industry
Easily extend the included text resources for your own business using the Resource Editor, which helps you find relevant concepts and associations faster. Create customized templates and libraries for specific business applications directly from the main Modeler toolbar, and reuse them with other products and applications, including IBM® SPSS® Text Analytics for Surveys. IBM SPSS Modeler Premium includes 180 vertical taxonomies (ranging from Life Sciences to Banking and Insurance to Consumer Electronics and much more). It includes more than 400,000 terms, plus 100,000 synonyms and thousands of brand names.
Improve decision-making across the enterprise
You can use insights derived from text data to achieve more accurate results with other IBM SPSS predictive applications - for example, improve real-time and batch scoring, provide real-time recommendations to inbound callers or speed insurance claim processing.
Sometimes you need to go beyond the desktop to analyze millions of records or deploy data mining as a part of enterprise architecture. By choosing a high-performance data mining tool, you can mine your data more efficiently and gain a significant return on investment.
IBM® SPSS® Modeler Server enables you to extract key insight from vast amounts of data in very short time with enterprise-level technologies. It offers all the features of IBM SPSS Modeler, plus specialized capabilities that deliver faster performance, more efficient administration and greater security in enterprise deployments.
IBM SPSS Modeler Server Features
Many FORTUNE® 500 corporations, academic institutions and national and local government agencies worldwide rely on IBM SPSS Modeler to unlock the value of their enterprise data, improve business processes and make more informed decisions in areas such as:
Who uses IBM SPSS Modeler?
Organizations count on Modeler to improve outcomes and reach their goals.
Businesses of all types have found that they can attract customers, strengthen their loyalty, reduce customer attrition or "churn" more cost effectively and reduce risk with Modeler. Public sector organizations have benefited from using Modeler to predict workforce capacity, proactively respond to public safety issues, manage the student lifecycle, improve classroom performance and address many other operational challenges.
Use IBM SPSS Modeler to solve your toughest challenges
Put data mining in the hands of business users while increasing analysts' productivity.
With IBM SPSS Modeler, you can access the vast amounts of data stored in operational systems, available through your Cognos Business Intelligence environment or in your mainframe directly; use it to create powerful, predictive models – and do so visually and intuitively in a graphical interface that doesn't require programming.
Graphical interface makes modeling easy, saves time
IBM SPSS Modeler's pioneering graphical interface makes it easy for business and professional analysts to focus on solving problems without spending time on programming tasks. As they work, interactive "streams" visually map the data mining process, allowing users to interact with information at any point and develop models quickly and confidently. These timesaving techniques lead to greater efficiency and accuracy and lower overhead costs.
Get faster results through automation
Automated modeling enables the software to identify the techniques that are best suited to solve your problems. This feature helps you to quickly create the best-performing model or models in a single step.
Using automated data preparation frees your analysts from having to spend countless hours validating and preparing data for analysis. Because almost 80 percent of data mining work is commonly spent on such time-consuming tasks, IBM SPSS Modeler's ability to automate this process enables analysts to focus their efforts where it counts – solving the business problem.
Use all of your data for maximum insight
With Modeler, you can also extract key concepts, sentiments and relationships in multiple languages from textual or "unstructured" data. IBM SPSS Modeler Premium includes a fully integrated text analytics workbench – making it easy to incorporate free text data from documents, e-mails, blogs, RSS feeds and other text sources into your analyses. This helps you see relationships between concepts, attitudes, people, organizations and events, and include these insights in your models.
Support for enterprise standards and technologies
IBM SPSS Modeler works with a wide range of databases, spreadsheets and flat files and on a wide range of platforms, so you can leverage all of your data and obtain better outcomes. You get a complete view of your customers or constituents – greatly improving your organization's ability to address complex business problems.
IBM SPSS Modeler is fully integrated with other IBM SPSS software products, so you can perform data preparation and manipulation, statistical testing and reporting without leaving the data mining workbench. New integration with additional IBM technologies, such as Cognos Business Intelligence and InfoSphere Warehouse, allows organizations to create a best of breed solution from a single vendor that maps from the storage and management of data to the deployment of predictive intelligence to decision makers.
