What is most valuable?

In Daman, I had used the data module, where you can join the table and take whatever data we require for our work. You join tables and create columns as you wish, then analyze data in various ways depending on what the problem is. We used it to detect fraud, abnormalities, anomalies, abnormal trends, etc. It's also good for exporting and importing tables.

What needs improvement?

Now that I have experience with Tableau, I think the visualization part of SAS EG could be more user-friendly and easier to use. Tableau is very easy to use. It just does a lot of work by itself, including color schemes. I think that could be incorporated easily into SAS EG, which would make it a much better product. Then you would not need Tableau. Tableau just adds a few visualization aspects… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it quite high, but because I don't have experience with other similar solutions, I cannot say how good this is. I have nothing to compare it to, as my experience is limited to SAS EG and Tableau. For my purposes, it has been great, but I don't know how well it can find patterns by itself with machine learning. I read in the newspapers and the internet that so much more is doable. The… more»

What is most valuable?

I think the Query Builder is very valuable. You just need to track and drop, everything is on the interface, without the need of too much coding.

How has it helped my organization?

I think that this solution is a good start to get into the data analysis field. The license for this is not per user so anyone who wants to use the product can approach it, and can take a look at it, rather than it involving a lengthy process. If the solution was per user, we would need to take into… more»

What needs improvement?

For improvement, I think the user interface is too complicated. For some of the advanced functions, you need to learn some SAS code in order to get what you want. I'm ideally looking for is something that is purely code free and user friendly, which doesn't require any kind of programming. For… more»

What other advice do I have?

Anyone implementing this solution should check the online manual where they have very good information on how best to use the product. Whenever you have a problem that needs to use a data solution, you can just do a quick Google, and add in the link to that website, and it can show you a lot of… more»

What is most valuable?

Areas where SAS EG does a better job than regular SAS are in the realm of importing and exporting data. For instance, exporting a SAS data set in Unix to an Excel spreadsheet on a PC is a simple task compared to doing the same task with Base SAS. The usual virtues of drag and drop style interfaces… more»

How has it helped my organization?

In general, for large complex programs, I found myself wishing I had access to the base SAS environment. People did not use the EG specific features, just writing long programs in Base SAS, using EG to launch them. Also, I could never get the ability to run code in parallel on the SAS Grid. For… more»

What needs improvement?

I had difficulty with the diagrammatic flow chart style representation of projects. When projects got too large and complex (which was basically every project, except the most trivial). There just wasn't enough real estate to display the flow chart and dependencies without a lot of scrolling, even… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Management liked it a lot because the license per seat was cheaper than a traditional SAS environment.

What is most valuable?

Statistical functionality and basic database interaction can become very straightforward for business users that don't have a background in SQL and data analysis. It allows business customers not familiar/comfortable with Unix environments to continue to use SAS functionality with interaction to data sources that are outside of their immediate control (application databases on remote hosts).

How has it helped my organization?

Users that want to code SAS but don't have expertise or comfort coding and/or running SAS in a Unix background will use this as a SAS IDE, and not as a true graphical process environment with the ability to "re-use" common process patterns. If the user base can be given some good basic guidelines it can be a serious productivity improvement tool.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see integration with schedulers when run from hosting environments such as Citrix. Currently, SAS Enterprise guide in CITRIX hosted environment appears to have access to Windows task manager to schedule EGP's. However, as soon as the client logs out due to windows "roaming profiles" being dynamic the scheduler does not work! It does not fail just doesn't do anything. In… more»
