We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable part of SAS/ACCESS is what it is made for: connecting to remote systems that are not part of your physical SAS environment."
"This is an established product with powerful data analysis and varied options for user entry points."
"The solution is very stable. We haven't faced any issues with glitches or bugs. We haven't had any crashes."
"If you compare it to SQL, the memory and development times are very quick."
"The technical support is excellent."
"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."
"The pricing model needs to be reconsidered and adjusted."
"Very little needs to improve but perhaps a nicer graphic interface and remaining competetive in the growing field of data analytics."
"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."
"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 solution could use better documentation."
"The pricing model is complex and is based on modular packages as well as the size of the applicable environment."
"While it is even free for personal use on the cloud, it can be expensive for desktop installations and enterprise use."
