SAS Key Strengths
- SAS business intelligence offers decision-makers fast, simple access to reports and analysis. Self-service reporting and familiar interfaces are tailored to the different skills and needs of individuals, enabling everyone to generate reports on their own.
- The SAS Business Intelligence solution suite gives companies the information when they need it, in the format they need. By integrating data from across the enterprise and delivering self-service reporting and analysis, IT spends less time responding to requests, and business users spend less time looking for information, so more time is spent on making better, more informed decisions.
- SAS ensures that customers have the breadth of BI capabilities to meet the needs of every type of user: managers looking for dashboards; groups who want to view or build reports on the Web; analysts or power users; and IT staff who need to deploy, manage, control and maintain the entire solution.
