SAS Analytics Pro Software


 

SAS Analytics Pro is a software suite that provides both data mining and data visualization capabilities, including data access, transformation and reporting. It processes intuitive 4GL (fourth-generation programming language, which is more similar to human language) and includes support for SQL.

Analytics Pro includes three of SAS’ most popular products: Base SAS (a data access, transformation and reporting application), SAS/STAT (a statistical analysis application) and SAS/GRAPH (a data visualization application).

The system features complex statistical analysis and reporting capabilities, and the statistical techniques offered are frequently updated to reflect current methodologies. With this suite, users can read data in most common formats and files.

SAS develops software for a range of buyers; including individuals, small, midsize and enterprise-level businesses and academia and government institutions. The company caters to the healthcare, higher education, banking and manufacturing industries, among many others.

Pricing is on a per-user basis only; licensing levels do not vary based on business size.

SAS allows users free reign to manipulate, aggregate, and present their data any way they see fit. Not only does the software allow for seamless connection to internal databases, but it can also be used to create SAS datasets, ultimately taking the burden off of critical databases and minimizing risk to the company.

Likes Least

The learning curve and breadth of knowledge is very large. It takes a while for a user to become proficient with SAS and the training tools can be quite expensive for the small and medium size companies.

Recommendations

I recommend companies look at what is available besides SAS from subscription software down to free downloads. This will allow the company to really focus on what they want their software to achieve and what is available. Many are surprised by what it costs to get their analytics needs met, but we were particularly happy with the cost-benefit of choosing SAS. For the price, it is the best, but we didn't realize that until we need what else the market provided.
