SAS Analytics Review

Able to connect to all major platforms

What is our primary use case?

I use SAS daily to analyze data, produce reports, and other outputs. I also use it to replicate our entire financial system to verify/duplicate calculations.

How has it helped my organization?

SAS Business Intelligence is well-suited for our large corporation. We have demand for scalable and reliable insights into information which is housed in our large systems.

What is most valuable?

SAS is a third-party software, therefore it absolutely has to "play nice" with other software platforms. It is able to connect to all major platforms, and all the smaller platforms that I have come across. 

It has also been around for an extremely long time, has a strong history, and good market penetration.

What needs improvement?

The training for SAS Business Intelligence is often difficult to arrange. It is often cancelled due to not enough people being enrolled.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

How is customer service and technical support?

Support at universities used to be limited, but I hear this is changing.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The cost for SAS Business Intelligence can prove to be a little prohibitive.
