SPSS Licensing Changes
I presume some of you, like us, were surprised by IBM's recent change in SPSS licensing that now specifically prohibits use of the product for university operations or university administration purposes under the terms of the academic license, limiting use to teaching and "non-commercial academic research."
Does anyone have any innovative solutions to share regarding this dilemma? Any particular products that are good target solutions for replacement of SPSS in these situations?
We presume the potential solution space includes:
1. Alternative tools for needs that don't require SPSS-level capabilities (e.g., statistical tools in Excel, etc.).
2. Examination of alternative products with advanced statistical capabilities.
3. Use of non-academic SPSS licenses for these operational purposes.
Just wondering if we were missing something.
