Fancy GUI for eminer is good but not very useful. I always use codes in eminer. one nice thing about eminer is that in many procedures, it provides the function to automatically generate scoring code for you, which is very handy and not available in stat. however, you can always use sas base to create scoring code by yourself. it just takes a little more efforts and time. from my view, for daily modeling work in direct marketing / risk modeling, sas/stat is sufficient.
