Industry analysts have identified predictive analytics as the fastest growing software category for company spending. They also expect that the need for staff with these capabilities will outpace available skill sets in many organizations. This will mean that expertise in data mining and predictive analytics will be highly sought after for years to come.

To ensure that educational institutions have access to these leading-edge technologies and can prepare their students for these opportunities, we now offer the IBM SPSS Mining in Academia Program (MAP) as part of the IBM SPSS Academic New Deal.

Box@UA delivery method

For the Box delivery method to work, you must have a registered University of Arizona Box account.

You can enable your Box@UA account on the University's site.


How to access or request a Box@UA account
  1. Visit and log in with your NetID and password.
  2. Click the Manage Your Accounts button on the left menu.
  3. Under Available Accounts, click on the Box button to create your account.

The account will be associated with your <netid> address, and also with your official university email address if it is different. After logging in, users will need to agree to the terms of service and follow proper computing guidelines.


After your Box@UA account has been created, we will be able to synchronize your access to the download folder. This happens roughly every 4-6 hours, so you may have to wait a bit after you enable your Box@UA account before you're able to download this software.
