It is a heavyweight in terms of data analysis, image processing and scientific programming.

Features & Functionality
Value for Money
Likelihood to Recommend:Not LikelyExtremely Likely
Pros: When I started using it I did it specifically to do time series analysis with a high volume of data. Looking for trends, seasonality, etc.
However, I have seen substantial improvements in reference to image processing, which is why I have started using it more frequently.
Being able to do external operations that can be programmed in C language is also a great advantage.
The user support is excellent.
The fact of working interchangeably in both Windows and Macintosh environments also increases its value.
Cons: The support of the libraries and the incorporated functions are much smaller than similar programs like Matlab, for example.
I particularly think that its learning curve is quite steep.
Overall: The combination of Macro-programming and the ability to perform numerical operations with the ability to create good user interfaces has been very useful, allowing me to create high-quality scientific graphics.
