Data Mining Survey Results :Tools and Offshoring

Here are some survey results from  Rexer Analytics

The Graphics seem self explanatory: terrific Data Visualization

1) The field of Data Mining seems ripe for either more offshoring to cut down costs or

there will be price pressures to cut costs on software ( read More R and SaaS) and Hardware ( more cloud /time sharing  ?)

2) Satisfaction with both R and SAS seems similar but R seems to score higher than other flavors.

3) An added dimension of  utility ( or say

(satisfaction in terms of analyst comfort + functionality in terms of business benefit) divided by (License + Training + Installation + Transition costs)

would have even extra analysis.

But these are not final results- for that you need to see Dr Karl at Rexer Analytics
