SPSS Amos for Administrative Use

IBM SPSS AMOS is data modeling software used to analyze relationships between hypothesized variables, build multivariate models, and create complex data relationships.

Administrative use of SPSS Amos is any use of the program other than for teaching and non-commercial academic research.  Non-commercial academic research is defined by IBM as "any research by degree seeking students and faculty where the results of such research are not intended for the benefit of a third party; such results are made available to anyone without restriction on use, copying, or distribution; and results are furnished at no cost beyond hosting, reproduction, and shipping."

For more product details, see IBM's SPSS Amos website.



Use of SPSS Amos for administrative activities is not covered under any current site agreement.  Individual licenses for such use should be purchased directly from IBM.



Purdue has no standing agreement for institutional use of SPSS Amos for administrative activities.  Licenses under our Academic Agreement cannot be used for administrative or operational activities.  Departments that need SPSS Amos for such activities can purchase single user licenses of the product as needed.



Departments wishing to purchase SPSS Amos for administrative use should contact IBM Sales directly for current pricing and to obtain an appropriate quote.  For the contact information of our IBM Sales Representative, the departmental purchaser should contact itap-licensing@purdue.edu.
