Computer program for qualitative data analysis.
Kommentare: As a researcher in the area of social sciences, she considered that the Atlas.ti is a very practical computer program that allows the use of data obtained from particular spaces such as interviews, visits, participations in groups or communities, among others to group them in codes or categories and subcategories of agreement correspond to determine new categories, relationships that in some way qualitatively will respond to investigations. The Atlas.ti is easy to manage, and provides a lot of freedom to name the categories according to the researcher's criteria.
Vorteile: The Atlas.ti is a computer tool that is used for the analysis of large amounts of textual or qualitative data, which as researchers seek to associate pattern codes or codes - labels that contain fragments of images, drawings, texts, videos, sounds and other types of videos in digital formats, which from the purely statistical or formal point of view is very difficult to analyze. The base from where the data is obtained is from interviews, visits, participations in groups or communities that seek to study, analyze or determine something in particular. The textual documents generated, images, audios, videos are transcribed or compiled into files that through the Atlas.ti are created hermeneutic units (UH), which the program uses to create encodings, whether open, axial and selective, that its Once they can be organized through the code manager. The program allows to name the codes allowing the researcher greater freedom to identify them, in the same way it allows you to create subcategories, and even separate them by colors. The work that as researcher can be done in the Atlas.ti leads to humanize the data collected in a qualitative analysis and interpretation research. All the information gathered in the investigation is integrated with the coding.
Nachteile: As a researcher in the use of Atlas.ti, I have had problems when assigning documents to the hermeneutic unit, whether they are texts, images, audios, among others, since these files are stored on the hard disk in a particular address and can not be be embedded in the hermeneutic unit, therefore in Atlas.ti only the reference that directs the linked file is placed, a reference that will allow access to the documents, but if the address is changed the program gives problems to find it, and it can be lost the work done. However, despite this, it is very important that when analyzing with this tool, it is very important not to move the files where the data obtained in the research is held.

AtlasTI is robust software for QDA analysis.
Kommentare: Its crucial for students to pay attention to the licensing terms of the QDA software they wish to use. Its important to NOT get caught into using proprietary software that expires and no longer allows the use of the purchased version. If it weren't for this issue, I'd be using AtlasTI as it is certainly one of the most full-featured QDA applications
AtlasTI has all of the features that a modern QDA application could hope for.
As a geographer, I was especially impressed by the ability of AtlasTI to work with maps and create geo-documents. Geographic locations can be coded and documents (text, video, audio) can be attached to specific geographic locations. This is a brilliant feature that many other QDA applications do not have. The interface for coding video is clear and very easy to use. Its easier to use than another major QDA tool that I work with. The company has plenty of documentation available for users to consult, and many instructional videos can be found easily online and on the company's website.
Nachteile: There's very little to dislike about AtlasIT. Its outstanding and robust. The company's policy regarding student licenses however, leaves much to be desired. Student licenses are valid for only 2 year and will expire. If you are a grad student who expends hundreds of hours on coding and analyzing your data with AtlasIT, you'll find that you are unable to continue to work on your project after you graduate unless you buy a commercial license. The expenses will add up rapidly. Student licenses should not expire and prevent users from continuing to work with their data using their purchased version of the software.

Worst customer support I've ever experienced!
Vorteile: Good functionality, not too hard to use, although more advanced functionality is harder to find out and learn to use. Analysis of data could be more extensive.
Nachteile: After doing an update of Atlas.ti 8 to the newest version (19 I think it was), I experienced some problems in the document view. About 80% of the quotations that I had made and the codes that were connected to these just disappeared directly after installation of the update. I reported the problem through the Problem Report option within Atlas, I called telephone support, I emailed the technical support team and, upon their request, I send them a Project Bundle to look into. Over the last two weeks, I have been calling 5 or 6 times to telephone support and sent multiple emails. The only response I got from telephone support (very friendly, although not able to help) was that they would pass on my request/complaints, as they couldn't do any more. I got two emails back from the technical support team in the first few days: one asking to report the problem within Atlas (which I already did and then did a second time) and to send a project bundle, the second email made apologies for waiting, confirmed receiving my project bundle and problem report and promised to get back within "a few days". That was 10 days ago. I have been waiting for two weeks now, even as it seems that this is not a very hard problem to solve (the quotations and codes are still there, no data seems to be lost), as it is just a problem in the document view. Moreover, the problem occurred directly after updating to a new version of Atlas, so literally nothing was changed in my own setting. Terrible support!!

I knew it by a friend.
Kommentare: I was able to complete qualitative analyzes in my work.
Vorteile: I liked the facility to process qualitative data. The platform offers multiple tools to perform analyzes at different levels.
Nachteile: At first it is difficult to use it, because of the multiple buttons on its entrance platform. In addition, making interpretations can be complicated if you do not handle it frequently.

It helped me organize information that on paper is difficult to remember its exact location
Kommentare: It is an ideal program for qualitative research, since it allows segmenting data into units of meaning; encode data and build theories.
- Ability to handle a huge variety of media
- It allows to organize data, add information and create comments, annotations, codes, categories and shows relationships, among all of them, and with the support of the program it is coded according to the scheme that has been designed.
- Make counts between units, categories, topics, memos and primary documents and show relationships between them
- Keeps the data under permanent analysis
- Helps to discover the complex relationships that are hidden in the qualitative data
- It Facilitates the general understanding of the research
- It facilitates the search, recovery and navigation for all segments of data and notes relevant to an idea.
- It builds networks that allow visually connecting selected pieces, memos and encodings, in such a way that it facilitates the elaboration of concepts and interpretations based on visible relationships and revealing other relationships.
- It allows the textual and conceptual analysis of the information, with a view to interpreting it through the decomposition into units to build categories and then hypotheses.
-It is necessary to digitize all the data, which is clearly for an investigation that has a lot of data on paper, it is a very strenuous job.
-Its indiscriminate use can generate over time an absolute dependence on the part of the researchers that conform only with the results thrown by the software and do not take the trouble to compare the results obtained from the research
- You can not make dating families

Excellent tool for doing qualitative research
Kommentare: I use this tool while creating research papers for conferences and have found that it definitely increases the quality of the work that I create.
Vorteile: It's a very useful tool when doing background research on an important research project. It allows you to draw conclusions from large amounts of reading material that would otherwise elude you.
Nachteile: It takes a lot of upfront work to tag and organise your reading while you're busy with your research, but that's not the software's fault, that's just due to the different workflow.

Interesting because this application allows to analyze qualitative data and categorize automatically
Vorteile: It is a tool that helps with the analysis of qualitative data: texts, images, graphics, audio and video, facilitating the understanding of the data in a visual way, since you can observe those complex relationships. In the same way, the possibility of relating categories and comments with the theoretical framework is very dynamic.
Nachteile: That does not have an option to perform the digitization of all data collected, therefore, the user must comply with that task.
