Director at Decision Science
* The codeless concept and speed of processing are unique. Super intuitive to use and easy to master. No coder needed. * I did not find a data source that I could not connect to yet. * In/out, preparation, blending, parsing, and transformation tools are the fundamental ones to start analysis. * Spatial operations and analytics are super powerful for analysis which requires these types of models/operations.

Statistician
As discussed above, the process flow and code wizards are very valuable as they allow any analyst, even those totally new to SAS, to quickly learn about new projects and get up to speed so that they can start working with it as fast as possible. The base SAS functionality of SAS EG delivers when it comes to consistently handling large datasets and, for the most part, it's not too difficult to write custom code to do whatever you want to do with your data. If things are ever too much, SAS's technical support team is easy to contact and incredibly helpful with any problem. View full review »
