SAS Visual Analytics Review
Improved interface but still not for novices


SAS is a great toolset for moderate to advanced statistical analysis. I have been using SAS since 1975 when I was doing market research projects for my packaged goods clients. It is not for novices; you really need to know statistics and while they have improved on the interfaces significantly (eg the management console), it will be still technically challenging for someone not used to anything but true drag and drop. You still need to master the "data step" to get unruly data into shape for analysis or write precisely formatted reports, or know SQL for Proc SQL.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

I agree that this tool is not for novices, but still I support SAS for all types of statistical analysis and reports generation.
