Choices for Statistical Analytics

Good article on SPSS, SAS and R by Steve Miller. I have worked now with all three of these packages over the years. They are all fundamentally good packages, with specialties and capabilities varying. In the enterprise all three were there. In the startup environment more attention is paid to cheaper solutions, so the focus changes for typical statistics. I am also concerned that some capabilities have been repackaged and now are being resold and packaged as 'predictive analytics'. In particular the way SPSS's former Clementine package is being re-sold at prices too high for the startup environment.
