Capacity for Huge Data Sets Good for Actuaries

Value for Money

SAS has the capacity to handle large amounts of data from disparate sources and process that data seamlessly. Data sets of one billion records can be handled routinely by SAS. Further, the power of SAS's statistical tools is invaluable for actuaries that require a Business Intelligence tool to go beyond the 'sales by region' data visualization to provide predictive modeling functionality.

Advice to Others

When considering SAS, it will be beneficial to perform a 'test drive' with as large a data set as possible. The goal of the testing should be to not only process the data set but to use the functionality within SAS to visualize the "story" behind the data.

SAS has many software tools for many different purposes.With so many products available beyond base SAS, the match between their product line experience is great.

Pros

Ease of learning. Provides easy learning mechanisms for people with knowledge of SQL.

Cons

SAS has decent functional graphical capabilities. However, it is just functional. Any customization on plots are difficult and requires you to understand intricacies of SAS Graph package.

Advice to Others

Globally, SAS is still the market leader in available corporate jobs. Most of the big organizations still work on SAS

Likes Best

The analytical power of the multiple options linked to different modules

Likes Least

It is expensive and the product itself is far from the top ones on its category. the graphics look like created in excel and the interface is not the most user friendly.

Recommendations

Think about the gains of using low quality graphs while connecting it to the analytical power tools offered by SAS.
