I work for a Medicaid only health plan. Our membership has grown from about
30,000 - 90,000 over the last several months. We are running SPSS 10 (soon
to be 11) for windows on the desk top. We analyze medical claims data that
reside in SQL tables.
We now have a need to be able to analyze 500,000 - 1,000,000 records at a
time with multiple variables. SPSS on the desktop has not been functioning
well, even with increased memory.
We are considering SPSS 11 for the server, and would like to hear back from
other folks who are using SPSS server to analyze huge data sets. It is
really, really, expensive and we want to make the right decision. Feel free
to comment on SAS desktop or Server if you have experience with either of
