SAS Visual Analytics

It is particularly well suited to big data collections that have good structure. It is not really designed for unstructured datasets (documents, etc). Its strength is the processing speed (particularly when implemented on Hadoop). It is not cheap but it is worth it!

ZAP Business Intelligence

ZAP is an incredible tool for those IT Organizations that need to stay lean. Within days, I was able to implement the ZAP solution instead of hiring Developers and ETL developers to tie into multiple Data infrastructures.

Pros

SAS Visual Analytics

  • Our staff are familiar with it as it is a common tool. Our training and implementation was short.
  • Installation was easy. Our staff was able to deploy to the receiving department relatively quickly. Though the download was a pretty good size.
  • Seems to crunch through large volumes of data (millions of records) pretty quickly as I've received no complaints on this front from staff.

ZAP Business Intelligence

  • Extremely Robust Interface
  • Implementation and Connection to Data Stores extremely fast. I was able to implement BI reporting within days.
  • Fantastic Support
  • Cost Effective Tool for any IT organization. Reduction in FTE, Data Reporting Deployment, and Cube Creation.

Cons

SAS Visual Analytics

  • Customizing a report as per the user requirement.
  • Adding more color and font styles. Presenting data in a more colorful way.
  • The website has a lot of tutorials which is more inclined to the technical side. Maybe add more to the presentation side as well.

ZAP Business Intelligence

  • I would love to see a strong integration with Google Analytics. ZAP works great with CRM platforms but would be interested to get the metrics on how marketing campaigns are tied to organic traffic and PPC.

Alternatives Considered

SAS Visual Analytics

SAS Visual Analytics stuck against IBM SPSS Modeler and Tableau in the sense that, it is far more accurate and reliable in the aspect of data and statistical analyses than others. Also, it is not just globally recognized as the leader in the field of statistical and data analysis, but also the most used statistical software worldwide. In addition, it combines the functionality of both IBM SPSS Modeler and Tableau which implies, it is comprehensive and has the widest coverage.

ZAP Business Intelligence

ZAP has a better interface and user-friendly.

Return on Investment

SAS Visual Analytics

  • SAS Visual Analytics licensing cost should be reduced to enable users to use it in mass scale.
  • More statistical and mathematical equations and theories should be converted into SAS functions for reusing.
  • Because of enriched ETL and reporting capabilities SAS Visual Analytics is most preferred by business users.
