  • Business problem

    With the complete Java rewrite of IBM SPSS Statistics® in 2008 OLE automation effectively disappeared leaving an entire generation of SPSS users in copy & paste purgatory. Dynamically linking SPSS output objects is no longer possible in MS Windows® applications so when updating a report the user must re-launch SPSS, rerun the analysis and export the new output objects back into the report - a very costly and time consuming task.

  • Business opportunity

    In response to a growing call from their SPSS customer base to improve the output in SPSS, the product designers behind PS IMAGO PRO first set out to extend SPSS with dozens of custom charts and tables such as Radar Charts and Contingency Maps to name but a few.

    Next came custom data procedures such as PS MONOTIC RECODE and PS DICHOTOMY CODING, handy extension commands that replace hours of scripting. In addition, custom analysis procedures such as Cramer's V correlated variables and Significant variables Chi-squared, colour coded tables that greatly ease the task of finding significant correlations between variables.  At present, more than 50 custom extensions collectively PS IMAGO PACK PRO - are built into SPSS with more on the way. 

    Next came the biggest development challenge for the product team: improving the handling of SPSS output objects together with the design and distribution of analytical reports.  For this they went beyond SPSS and built a separate application which combines report design, report management and report distribution.

    In short, PS IMAGO PRO is highly repeatable with a potential target market consisting of 1000s of date analysts worldwide.
