Previous Solutions

SAS Visual Analytics was been chosen by my employer as one of two applications for strategic data visualisation. Tableau has been adopted for general purposes, whilst SAS Visual Analytics and Visual Studio are deployed for data visualisation where analytics are the focus as opposed to regular dashboarding.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Pricing is excellent and beats a lot of the competition, especially when scaling.
