Overall Satisfaction with SAS Visual Analytics

SAS Visual Analytics is one of our key products. It allows us to present detailed and complex statistics in a meaningful way. It also allows us to look at the data with 'fresh eyes' and see correlations that may not otherwise be evident. For 'big data' organizations this is a great tool.
  • Present data across a range of axis in a meaningful way
  • bring out correlations that could lead to some interesting research
  • it's FAST!
  • Securing individual records or fields from view
  • additional view types
  • Expensive in dollars (but worth it)
  • Significant establishment effort but once set up easy to manage
  • good user feedback
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!
