We have customers that are typically in the finance sector and include banking and insurance companies. They require us to align or integrate their existing data warehouse into all the processes that feed into the data warehouse. We clean the data and create reports for the clients. Typically, they are visual in nature and may include Excel or PowerPoint. The solution allows for a great variety of output in the reports we provide to our clients.
As in any housing finance company, we have multiple source systems. One is on-premises and is used for loan management, and recently we implemented Microsoft Dynamics which is a cloud-based CRM. We also have a system in place for our call center to manage their calls. It's called a CPS system. We require data from multiple sources to be in one central location. Previously we did not have any data warehousing, but now we are using SAS Data Integration Studio to get the data from multiple sources into a single location. This is the major use case of SAS Data Integration.
I have always worked in data analysis, data warehousing and information services in the corporate environment and, more specifically, mostly in the insurance industry. I used to be a SAS programmer because I'm always interested in it. Even though I'm not using the product officially in the corporate environment. I use it personally. I use the free cloud version. I use it when I work for the agriculture industry and I do their analysis for them. I like to use it for many data analysis tasks and working with business information.
