Recently both Gartner and Forrester Research have released new reports on the data science and predictive analytics area. I am happy to say that IBM is a leader in both of the reports. In both cases SPSS Modeler was the primary software evaluated.

First, IBM is positioned as a Leader in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Science Platforms, based on its ability to execute and completeness of vision. This is the fourth consecutive year for IBM to be recognized as a leader in this report. You can read more information and get a copy of the report here.

IBM has also been named a leader in the Forrester Wave for Predictive Analytics and Machine Learning. You can obtain more information and get a copy of the report here.

Finally, I would like to state that IBM SPSS Modeler 18 now supports access to additional data sources. These include

-- BigInsights 4.1 and 4.2 using the BigSQL functionality. This is enabled through the DB2 CLI driver.
-- DB2 11.1
