What it can do for your business
IBM SPSS Forecasting provides advanced capabilities that enable both novice and experienced users to develop reliable forecasts using time-series data. Users with less expertise can create sophisticated forecasts that integrate multiple variables, while experienced forecasters can use the software to validate their models. Examples of time-series forecasting include predicting the number of staff required each day for a call center or forecasting the demand for a particular product or service.
This module is included in the SPSS Professional and Premium packages. It is available at an additional cost for the Base and Standard packages.
