SAS Review

When I was first sent for SAS training, I had no idea of the Power of SAS. The training for all the how many courses I had to take.... the training was ran by extremely wonderful teachers. This is the other thing about SAS Institute. Their teachers are amazing. You walk out of each workshop / course breathing SAS.

PROS

SAS is one of the most wonderful Software ever. I have only been using it for 29yrs. I am not joking. SAS is that good.

CONS

Anyone who has used SAS, seriously used it, would have a hard time finding negatives.

Reason for choosing SAS Visual Analytics

No choice. It was my employer. These reviews of Software should remember that many times, users had no choices. Have no choices. We work with what our employers present us.

Reasons for switching to SAS Visual Analytics

I had no choice. My employer was switching from a variety of software to SAS and some of us had to learn SAS. No regrets. It was a great experience.

SAS BI - Scalable and Comprehensive BI Tool

PROS

It's Visual Data Exploration capabilities to visualize the data and find patterns quickly is amazing. The features such as heat maps helps us understand where most of the traffic for an advertiser is coming from and helps the advertiser to target the customers more effectively. Creating Dashboards doesn't require a lot of technical know how and anyone can start making dashboards. Also, these dashboards and reports simplifies collaboration as different people are able to share their comments by directly commenting on the visuals or charts. Another feature which interests me is that it allows to integrate with other open source platforms like R.

CONS

Such a comprehensive set of features with a brand like SAS obviously comes with a price but I find the price to be over the top for the small and medium organizations. Only a few open source platforms are supported and lot of common ones used by a lot of smaller organizations have been left out. Further, user interface looks dated and needs a facelift to match other players like Tableau.

SAS Misrepresentative Sales Team

We love the software, however our experience with the sales team and return on our price point has been very negative.

PROS

The software itself is very versatile and is extremely equipped for Cloud Based setup and use.

CONS

We are a women and minority owned small business who were extremely excited to become SAS software users in 2021. In spite of the high upfront cost to our small business (we paid $14,000+ for a year or use), we received a notification our software would be expiring less than five months after we had been connected to our technical setup representatives and had the software for less than six months. This was after we had let the sales representative [SENSITIVE CONTENT] know that we were not ready to sign on until Q4. However, [SENSITIVE CONTENT] and his colleague [SENSITIVE CONTENT] stated we would lose our discounts and pressured us to sign stating we would be really helping out SAS' Q3 Closing sales. We started early in good faith only to find out the people to help us get ready for setup weren't even provided to us until just before December. The SAS team stated our original technical onboarding person had an illness or emergency and then we didn't hear back with a new contact [SENSITIVE CONTENT] until about a month later.  Sending an early licensing termination to us for software that the SAS company failed to provide a technical setup contact for until well past the first 60 days is fraudulent.  In spite of our good faith sign up in Q3 based on the SAS sales teams statements, we were left post signing with no support from a technical setup representatives provided to us until two months later. 

Reason for choosing SAS Visual Analytics

Good Cloud Based Setup

Very powerful, flexible, and works with all third parties we need.

The ability to connect with all third parties (that we use) and merge their data together in one system then analyze the structured information in a consistent and reliable way makes SAS Business Intelligence a very powerful system. The ability to run code that we made 10 years ago is also very nice.

CONS

The complexity and inconstancy of the product is not always the most desirable. Often times doing similar things requires very different approaches. SAS Business Intelligence has been around for such a long time that different "procs", as they are called in their system, often have extreme variance in syntax.

SAS for data wrangling

I am working as a full-time SAS developer in my current organization. SAS is easy to use and good for data wrangling purposes. If your primary goal if to work on model development I would prefer other languages like python and R which has numerous libraries and free to use.

PROS

I worked as a Data wrangler and data scientist in my current organization. I like the ecosystem and customer support of SAS. It is easy to learn if you have basics SQL knowledge. It is faster than python/R. Preferred over open source if data privacy is a concern.

CONS

The user community is not so great as compared with another open-source. SAS is pretty expensive so companies are now switching to open sources like python and R.

Reason for choosing SAS Visual Analytics

Data confidentiality. Enterprise version. Customer support
