Intelligence Management and Analytics for the Intelligence Community
End-to-end intelligence lifecycle management delivers powerful results

SAS combines its intellectual property, integrated analytic framework and experience to deliver end-to-end solutions that fit into your current operating environment and can expand to meet your future requirements.
Effective, predictive intelligence
In a fast-paced, mission-critical environment, a military operation revolutionized the way it created intelligence using SAS®. It can now more quickly access, review, produce and disseminate indicators, warnings and exploitable intelligence to commanders in the theater to help save lives.
How SAS® Can Help
As data volume, intelligence sources and analytical complexity continue to grow, SAS provides organizations with the capabilities necessary to meet current, planned and unforeseen high-performance analytics requirements, pre-empt cyberthreats, reveal suspicious financial activity, evaluate social media and assess risk. SAS delivers the robust engine that can integrate, process, analyze and visualize the enormous amounts of multi-INT structured and unstructured data that analysts have to sift through to produce the high-quality, comprehensive analysis upon which decision makers rely. SAS helps you:
- Manage the entire intelligence life cycle. SAS solutions support all the key stages of the intelligence life cycle: planning, collection, processing, analysis and dissemination – making it easier for agencies to direct, track and audit information as it moves through the system. Information is accessed on a need-to-know basis reflecting individual roles and responsibilities through our role-based security model. "Protected" and "covert" roles help minimize the risk of particularly sensitive contacts and intelligence being compromised.
- Proactively manage the growth of data volume, velocity and variety. Access, integrate, cleanse and standardize data with SAS data integration and data quality solutions. Integrate data from virtually any source and interactively exchange data between different platforms.
- Derive essential meaning from big data to build the complete intelligence picture. Analyze unstructured data and perform entity extraction and ontology management using SAS Text Analytics. Reveal unknown and abnormal patterns of behavior with SAS data mining. Apply link analysis to reveal relationships between entities with SAS Social Network Analysis.
- Accelerate the time it takes to search, access and analyze data. Reduce the time you spend performing analysis on your data from hours to seconds, and easily scale to ever-increasing volumes of data so you can explore big data faster and answer big analytics problems quickly and with confidence.
SAS offers deep domain knowledge, intelligence management capabilities and analytics expertise with a highly skilled workforce of security-cleared personnel and subject-matter experts. By offering significant efficiencies in the intelligence environment and allowing you to automate manual, labor-intensive processes, SAS solutions free up resources so that analysts can focus on countering new threats.
