A Review of Wizard Pro

Wizard is an intuitive data analysis tool, designed from the ground up to be readily accessible but still retain the power of sophisticated command line driven applications that only seem suitable for programmers.

Wizard comes in two flavours, Wizard for Mac and Wizard Pro for Mac the difference between the two versions is that the Pro version is able to Import from SAS, Stata, and SPSS. Both versions can import a variety of file types, including Excel, Access, Numbers, R workspaces, SQLite, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and comma-separated values (CSV).

When you first start up the application you are presented with a splash screen that allows new users to explore the program using an interactive tutorial.

The tutorial takes the user through the process of analysing a sample data set. This is a really good idea and is one that perhaps other developers should perhaps think of including.
