What do you like best about this product?

SAS is powerful software for analyzing just about any data your company has. It is used extensively by government agencies and large corporations worldwide. SAS has been the market leader in statistical analysis for some time and has added impressive new features in the most recent releases. My company provides SAS programmers to many of our clients to analyze their data and drive decision making. It does take an investment in training to utilize fully but the results can be worthwhile.

What do you like best about this product?

We decided on SAS about 4 years ago and we are glad we did. Since then, we’ve upgraded software for a very reasonable amount and it has vastly increased our business intelligence capabilities. We use SAS for predictive modeling, ad hoc statistical analysis, and automated reported, all of which were absent before the software arrived here. This tool has allowed us to get to answers more quickly while utilizing our data the best we can. The software is engrained into our daily processes, and this was achieved with very little effort. The software is basically seamless with a vast amount of other programs.
