There are now two different surveys running for data scientists and other analytic professionals to show their preferences in software and analytic techniques. We would encourage all users of IBM SPSS Modeler and IBM SPSS Statistics to take the surveys.

First, KDNuggets has a survey on “What software you used for Analytics, Data Mining, Data Science, Machine Learning projects in the past 12 months?” In addition to the SPSS products, the survey lists “IBM Watson/Watson Analytics”, IBM Cognos and IBM DSX (i.e. Data Science Experiences). The survey asks about open source languages as well. If you are using a Modeler or Statistics extension or are creating open source programs in Data Science Experience, you should check the appropriate open source language as we are always tracking which open source language is the most popular. This survey should take less than a minute to fill out.

In addition, Rexer Analytics is running its bi-annual data science survey. This is a more comprehensive survey asking what kinds of data you might be using, techniques you use and how your organization uses data science . At the end, you will fill out which tools you are using.

Thanks for your support!
