IBM SPSS Modeler is a data mining and text analytics software application built by IBM. It is used to build predictive models and conduct other analytic tasks. It has a visual interface which allows users to leverage statistical and data mining algorithms without programming.

IBM SPSS Modeler was originally named Clementine by its creators, Integral Solutions Limited. This name continued for a while after SPSS's acquisition of the product. SPSS later changed the name to SPSS Clementine, and then later to PASW Modeler.[1] Following IBM's 2009 acquisition of SPSS, the product was renamed IBM SPSS Modeler, its current name.

Applications[edit]

SPSS Modeler has been used in these and other industries:

Editions[edit]

IBM sells the current version of SPSS Modeler (version 15) in two separate bundles of features. These two bundles are called "editions" by IBM:

  • SPSS Modeler Professional: used for structured data, such as databases, mainframe data systems, flat files or BI systems
  • SPSS Modeler Premium: Includes all the features of Modeler Professional, with the addition of:
Text analytics
Entity analytics
Social network analysis

Both editions are available in desktop and server configurations.

Product history[edit]

Early versions of the software were called Clementine and were Unix based and designed as a consulting tool and not for sale to customers. Originally developed by a UK company named Integral Solutions Limited (ISL),[9] the tool quickly garnered the attention of the data mining community (at that time in its infancy). Original in many respects, it was the first data mining tool to use an icon based Graphical user interface rather than requiring users to write in a Programming language.

In 1998 ISL was acquired by SPSS Inc., who saw the potential for extended development as a commercial data mining tool. In early 2000 the software was developed into a client / server architecture, and shortly afterward the client front-end interface component was completely re-written and replaced with a superior Java front-end.

SPSS Clementine version 12.0
The client front-end runs under Windows. The server back-end Unix variants (Sun, HP-UX, AIX), Linux, and Windows. The graphical user interface is written in Java.

IBM SPSS Modeler 14.2 was the first release of Modeler by IBM

IBM SPSS Modeler 15, released in June 2012, introduced significant new functionality for Social Network Analysis and Entity Analytics.
