How SAS® Can Help
SAS drives innovation by providing industry-specific solutions and an analytics framework that promote rapid, efficient information sharing and streamline information processes while improving the validity and safety of clinical trials. SAS enables you to:
- Easily access and aggregate the clinical data needed for analysis by accessing, transforming and standardizing diverse data sources into a unified clinical knowledge base that provides global access to clinical information.
- Deliver rapid clinical insights using core statistical analysis, data visualization capabilities and advanced analytics – such as data and text mining, forecasting and optimization – to adapt trial designs, halt unproductive trials, accelerate promising clinical programs or optimize clinical trial operations.
- Assess which trial designs are most likely to achieve desired goals – and weed out ineffective trial designs before they start – by performing clinical trial simulations that apply a variety of trial design scenarios to data models developed from real trials.
- Easily and seamlessly implement industry standards such as CDISC, since relevant standards support is built into our core software.
How SAS® Is Different
SAS provides the most accurate, consistent and reliable analysis of biopharmaceutical data and information available in the industry. With SAS, you get:
- Superior data management. SAS provides easy access to standard, trusted data, regardless of computing platform or location, while enabling you to get the most out of your existing investments in legacy systems and resources.
- Advanced business analytics. SAS provides the best analytic and reporting technologies for your drug and device development projects, giving users the power and flexibility to assess data, produce presentation-ready statistical summaries of clinical trials data, and share the results rapidly with researchers and reviewers.
- Industry experience and domain expertise. For more than 34 years, life sciences companies have used SAS to derive greater insight from information, and our domain experts provide critical insight into drug and device development issues. SAS is globally recognized as the industry leader in business analytics and the de facto standard for clinical data analysis and reporting in life sciences.
