Overall Satisfaction with SAS Business Intelligence

SAS Business Intelligence is being used primarily in our Research and Analytics departments to evaluate program changes that we might make going forward. It really is only used by a few departments by company employees who are considered subject matter experts. Other departments use the outputs that we generate to make their business decisions. Another major use is for math intensive tasks.
  • I use SAS daily to not only analyze data, producing reports and other outputs, but also to replicate our entire financial system to verify/duplicate calculations.
  • Using SAS we are able to duplicate all business logic and system calculations on our local desktop.
  • When there is odd behavior (a bug) in our financial calculations my SAS programs, which are entirely external to our core system, are often used to help identify what/where the problems occurred.
  • The cost for SAS Business Intelligence con prove to be a little bit prohibitive.
  • The training for SAS Business Intelligence is often difficult to arrange and has often been canceled due to not enough people enrolled.
  • Support at Universities used to be limited but I hear that this is changing.
SAS Business Intelligence is third party software and therefore absolutely has to "play nice" with other software platforms. It is able to connect to all major platforms and all smaller platforms that I have come across. It has also been around for an extremely long time and has a strong history and good market penetration.
SAS Business Intelligence is a very strong contender in the field of software for connecting data sources, it has been built from the ground up to for sharing and collaboration.
SAS Business Intelligence is well suited for large corporations that have a demand for scalability and reliability to provide insights into the information that is often housed in their large systems.
