"If you compare it to SQL, the memory and development times are very quick.""The technical support is excellent.""The solution is very stable. We haven't faced any issues with glitches or bugs. We haven't had any crashes.""In terms of which features I have found most valuable, I would say the importing and exporting features. Additionally, the data sorting, categorizing and summarizing features, especially how it can summarize based on categories. These are the key features.""The product offers very good flexibility."

"With SAS Data Management, you have to purchase an external driver, configure all of the tables for all of the data that you will extract from Salesforce. It's not a straightforward process.""One problem is accessing the data using a solution other than SAS. The SAS data, which we create in the SAS, cannot be accessed by other tools. We can't open those data in other applications. So we need to have that application in place.""The pricing of the solution needs to be improved. They need to work to make it more affordable.""We find we often have to go back and re-train users when there are changes made to the solution because the changes are not intuitive.""The solution could use better documentation."
