  1. Hi Dough

    How can IBM Business Partners get access to the Subscription software similar to accessing software on the software access catalogue?


    • Hi Roger – As a IBM Business Partner, the best way is to begin a trial by following the links above. Then, contact your business partner rep.

    As in option of subscription there is a reference to Complex Samples & Testing Users, can you please inform if it refers to a new module for the Statistics or what is the correspondence with the modules avaiable in the normal licenses.

    • Here is a breakdown of everything that is in each of the 3 modules of SPSS Statistics Subscription. Complex Sampling & Testing includes Complex Samples, Exact Test, Categories, Conjoint, and Missing Values are included within this add-on.

  3. Doug, new visualization engine looks great, will there be a tool in the new Statistics for programming custom graphics? Current option gives exacly what is already available in the GUI. Will there be support for d3.js for example?
