  • Stock market analysis.
  • Resource utilization and optimization.
  • Pivot table analysis.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Support. Have had billing and license/key issues. The first time my staff reached out to support, they recommended contacting our site admin for help (me). If we could help ourselves, why would we contact? Support seems lacking.
  • Download. The install file is huge and can be an issue for remote employees, or areas where networking is poor.

  • Visualization of large amount of data is faster because of the SAS engine behind it.
  • Features like decision trees, box plot, scatter plot, and histogram are very easy to use for exploring large data. It also has some unique features like Sankey Diagrams which can be used to show a flow of a process.
  • Customization options for the design of reports, making it visually more appealing.
  • Better HTML5 support.
  • More tutorial videos or literature on the features that are present in SAs visual analytics

  • The risk team uses risk analysis reports created by team members for mitigating future risks and challenges.
  • Supply risk management uses SAS VA analytics dashboards on daily basis for their research and decision making. SAS VA has LASR analytics servers which are very fast and tuned for analytics queries.
  • SAS VA is used by the finance and marketing team to create their own reports out of SA LASR tables as per their need. SAS VA does have both ETL and analytics capability which makes it a complete analytics package.
  • More advanced dashboard features like multiple tabs creation.
  • Should have option to export dashboard reports to multiple formats with original format intact.
  • Latency time of reports and response should be increased.
