Simply fascinating to see the technology shifts that SPSS went through and the never-ending success it is having.
I came to SPSS France in 2007 to fuel the new "enterprise" segment that SPSS had decided to attack. A fantastic Country Manager (David WIlliamson), an exceptional pre-sales team (Hervรฉ Mignot), an inspiring marketing team (Hervรฉ Dhelin) and of course GREAT products! In that new segment, we went from 0$ to several millions in 2 years, from 0 customer to hundreds of big loyal companies... A lot of fun working with European colleagues - and yes it can also be fun discussing with the Legal team based in the UK! The focus paid off. And then big IBM took over. I remember IBMers trying to understand what we were selling and how we were approaching business people in the marketing area for example. Some didn't understand (still don't probably) but they were all saying SPSS was like a tiger tooth. No customer complaint. No product defects. Happy and Loyal customers always eager to explore more and more data with the SPSS products. I am very thankful to all the people I met during these years at SPSS. I have met enthusiasts engineers, great salespeople, marketing innovators and so forth. By the way, I am still using SPSS Modeler (now on my MacBook) to analyse sales data and derive insights on my day to day job. Thank you SPSS and special thanks to the SPSS France wonderful team!
