About this paper
What if you are a retailer and it normally takes you 30 hours to set prices for individual stores? What would it mean to your business if you could discover optimal price points in only two hours? With SAS High-Performance Analytics, complex analytical jobs that previously took days or hours to process now run in just hours or minutes even with hundreds or thousands of input variables. Analysts have more time to experiment with advanced models to improve them, and executives can get answers to questions they never even knew to ask. As SAS CEO Jim Goodnight says, "With this software, we want organizations to reset how they think about solving problems." This paper explores the question: what could your organization do with faster, better answers, and provides possible use case scenarios that illustrate the value this technology brings to a variety of industries.
