Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The most valuable feature is the ability to handle large data sets.
Modeling ones and figures, such as PROC LIFETEST, PROC LOGISTICS, PROC GPLOT. PROC FREQ and PROC MEANS, are also among the valuable features.
It has facilitated timely analysis results with quality work and meaningful output.
I use it to replicate our entire financial system to verify/duplicate calculations.
I use SAS daily to analyze data, produce reports, and other outputs.
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.
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.
he solution is scalable.
The solution is very good for data mining or any mining issues.
The setup is straightforward. Deployment doesn't take more than 30 minutes.
This solution should be made more user-friendly.
Once a SAS figure is produced one would like to modify things, such as titles, legends, and incorporate risk sets as a footer on the plots.
Support at universities used to be limited, but I hear this is changing.
The training for SAS Business Intelligence is often difficult to arrange. It is often cancelled due to not enough people being enrolled.
I would like to see their interface to R added to either Base SAS or SAS Analytics.
The solution needs an easier interface for the user. The user experience isn't so easy for our clients.
The solution is very stable, but we do have some problems with discrepancies involving SAS not matching with the latest Java versions. It's not stable in cases where SAS tries to run on a different version because SAS doesn't connect with the latest Java update. Once a month we need to restart systems from scratch.
The user interface of the solution needs improvement. It needs to be more visual.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost for SAS Business Intelligence can prove to be a little prohibitive.
Setup costs were quite reasonable.
Prices were comparable with alternative solutions.
Licensing was rather straightforward.
It is relatively expensive. It is not an easy software to afford.
