SPSSIBM SPSS allows users to mine historical data to find trends and anomalies that otherwise might not be obvious.

Using this tool, organizations can find the answers to questions like:

  • how can I attract and retain the students most likely to succeed?
  • how do I know how best to market to those students?
  • how do I know what students are likely to stop out or drop out?  What possible interventions will be effective?
  • how do I know what course offerings will be the most successful and profitable at my school?
  • how can I use external data and social media information to best predict positive outcomes?
  • how do I know which alumni to approach for fundraising?

Outputs from SPSS can then be surfaced using a traditional BI tool such as Cognos 10 to provide powerful insights into the data to the appropriate knowledge workers.
