    RStudio review by Steven B.
    "Great IDE for programming in R: Rstudio is one of the few IDEs that exist for programming in R because it is a very recent language and still little known, for this the editor Rstudio although it has little development time I think it is an application that is very well built and that works suitably for the creation of large projects using R as a language. Technically it is very similar to other IDE created for other languages so if you are a programmer you probably do not find it hard to understand. The application in terms of configuration seemed complete and has all the features that one needs to build an efficient workspace in any IDE. On the one hand it allows the change of appearance to a darker theme, something that we appreciate those of us who have a sight that gets tired easily when programming in environments with a lot of light. It also has a very useful command console for the execution or compilation of the project."

    Stata review by Leo B.
    "Stata - You should use, no questions asked!: Stata is my favorite statistical software, by far. I have used SPSS, SAS and R, and Stata combines ease of use with powerful capabilities. SPSS is a little clunky, SAS is not as intuitive and R isn't standardized. I definitely recommend Stata for any scientist looking to perform his own statistics."

    SAS Base review by Naveen R.
    "Base SAS - Easy to learn with strong learning support, but high cost is a deal-breaker: Base SAS is a good entry-level application for new analysts. Its biggest advantages are the excellent online help system and dedicated customer support it provides on even the smallest aspect of the tool. Also, Base SAS works very well for simple data manipulations, exploratory data analysis and bi-variate analysis, although building complex models is not possible. Building complex machine learning models requires an upgrade to SAS-Stat. "

    "Review de JMP: JMP es una herramienta útil para diseñar experimentos y analizar datos. Su interfaz visual lo hace extremadamente fácil de usar y quizá sea ideal para cuando se comienza a enseñar a un principiante a ejecutar diversos análisis. JMP es mucho más fácil de usar que SAS o R, ya que no se requiere programación. La entrada de datos y el análisis son absolutamente sencillos y con pocos clicks tienes todo listo. Una de sus funciones que más me gusta es las posibilidades que ofrece a la hora de crear gráficos arrastrando las variables de interés."

I switched over to this software when I started working in the VCU research lab and was able to make sense of my data iin half the amount of time it took me with SPSS due to the easy interface and instructions on how to quantity and explain data sets.

The CLI version is very light on my computer so it uses very ram and cpu speed.It's is the best software to use use when we enter the field of Data Science and Machine Learning.Everyone must have some experience with GNU Octave."

    KNIME Analytics Platform review by Bob M.
    "Powerful & Easy to Use Predictive Analytics / Data Mining: KNIME offers a delightful blend of power and ease-of-use. It uses a workflow (flowchart) interface. It offers you a collection of icons that represent steps in your analysis. You position each icon in a diagram and connect them with arrows that represent the flow of data or models from step to step. Double-clicking on an icon will open a dialog box allowing you to set the parameters of how that step should run. You can document the workflow by clearly labeling each step, and by color coding entire sections of the diagram. As a result, you can look at another person's analysis and quickly get the big picture of what was done. If a diagram gets too complex, you can select a whole section of it and collapse it into a "metanode" so that one icon then represents all the steps. It's also easy to rerun an analysis on new data by simply changing the node(s) that read in data. Note that KNIME does not have a scripting language, nor does it need one. I particularly like the company's view of open source software. The full desktop version of KNIME is free and open source, regardless of how much data you have. Its closest competitor price-wise is RapidMiner, which is free only if you have fewer than 10,000 cases. KNIME also offers excellent integration with a wide range of other open source software such as: Python, R, Spark, and even ImageJ for image analysis. The server version of KNIME has a commercial license, i.e. not free. The company also sells software to let work groups share node libraries. For example, if I develop a new node in, say, R, and email it to everyone, then when I improve it, I'll have to email it again. Everyone using it would have to edit their work flows, but at least that's a free solution. However, if we purchase the collaboration extensions, I would make a change to the shared node, and everyone's work would be updated automatically. I appreciate having so much control over what to spend on a KNIME solution."

    ROOT review by Dmitriy B.
    "A large package for every need - hard to learn easy to user: There are two main points about ROOT - its open source and its a product of generations of scientists. Descending from Paw (still in FORTRAN), ROOT was the C++ version for the comprehensive data analysis first for the high energy physicists and then for the general programming community to use. Most attractive features include cross-platform, ability to call from Python or R, JS-viewer and the GUI libraries that can be easily incorporated into any c++ design (so that program is easily portable from Win to POSIX and back and its the same libraries being called)."

    G*Power review by User
    "G*Power for Independent Research: G*Power was straight forward, easy to use, and user friendly for someone who is not a statistics expert. It allowed me to conduct an a priori power analysis to determine an appropriate sample size for my research study. I did not have the ability to hire a statistician to do this for me, so this resource was really helpful. The website also provides a ready-to-use citation."

    (1)0.5 out of 5
    PS is an interactive program for performing power and sample size calculations that may be downloaded for free. It can be used for studies with dichotomous, continuous, or survival response measures. The alternative hypothesis of interest may be specified either in terms of differing response rates, means, or survival times, or in terms of relative risks or odds ratios. Studies with dichotomous or continuous outcomes may involve either a matched or independent study design. The program can determine the sample size needed to detect a specified alternative hypothesis with the required power, the power with which a specific alternative hypothesis can be detected with a given sample size, or the specific alternative hypotheses that can be detected with a given power and sample size.
