For a long time, SPSS has been presumed to be the standard tool for statistical data analysis in companies and public institutions. Now, more users are considering changing their programming language to R – the promising solution in regard to data mining and predictive analytics.

R warrants the availability of current data analysis methods because of the close connection with the worldwide data science community. Due to the growth of extension packages, R is the leader in range of features and flexibility.

An essential advantage is the integration of R in existing IT environments. Almost every database features interfaces to R. By connecting with other programming languages such as C++ and JavaScript, R can be optimized and expanded.

There is no end in sight relating to the positive development of R because of the support of the community and companies like Oracle®, Microsoft® and SAP®. Pioneers of big data business such as Google have employed R development teams long ago.

Additionally, R is open source which means it is licence-free unlike other analysing solutions.

The translation from SPSS syntax to R code can turn into a difficult IT project. A manual migration is error-prone, complex and the creation of a functional equivalent R script is complicated due to the differences between the two languages.
