One of the most popular downloads on the Softonic site continues to be SPSS, allowing you to make complex graphs and illustrations from statistical data. The package is mainly aimed at those that want to solve business and research problems and features a wide range of analytical functions that take the pain out of collating data.
After the pretty quick installation procedure, you can generate graphs, pie-charts and timelines to impress your boss and present your results with some good-looking tabular and 3D graphical features. It also includes a convenient web-share function so that you can publish your results for colleagues via SPSS’s online database rather than send them by e-mail.
SPSS also offers more detailed analysis options to look deeper into your data and spot trends that you might not have noticed. You can test out hundreds of different variables on your data to see how figures or performance would change under different circumstances.
Whilst business users will find this an immensely useful program, it does take some time getting used to. In many ways, its a glorified version of Excel but with far more options and more intuitive to use. Domestic users may be intimidated by the size of the program and would be better off using something simpler although once mastered, its fairly simple to use.
