||Most of the SPSS statistical software used in the institute are installed as a standalone version. As the SPSS software is licensed on an annual subscription basis, re-installation of the software is required every year. In order to make better use of resources, to reduce the workload of software re-installation and to allow more students / staff to use the software, starting from the 08/09 academic year, all the computers in computer labs at headquarters and staff computers with the SPSS software installed (except ESS) will be changed to the SPSS network version. The network version does not count the number of physical computers with the SPSS software installed. However, the total number of computers running the SPSS software concurrently must not exceed the upper limit of the user licenses.
For those staff who are using the SPSS standalone version or would like to use the SPSS software in the coming academic year, please submit a service request via SRMS (http://srms.ipm.edu.mo) for installation arrangement of the SPSS network version.
