SAS® Text Analytics helps improve revenue, quality and safety
CARY, NC (Feb. 24, 2011) – Lauding SAS for its text analytics, KMWorld lists the business analytics leader among "100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management." SAS Text Analytics enables organizations to derive maximum value from large quantities of text, leveraging content assets across departmental repositories and easing reuse regardless of who owns the content or where it was generated.
"SAS remains on our list as a company that matters due to its innovative leadership in analytics," said Hugh McKellar, Editor-in-Chief of KMWorld. "Organizations using text analytics from SAS can glean insights from massive volumes of internal data and the deluge of publicly available text, such as social media. Leveraging unstructured data gives decision makers a clearer view of both issues and opportunities."
Using insights gained through analyzing text helps organizations of all sizes improve revenue, quality and safety. Oberweis Dairy credits SAS Text Analytics with improved marketing campaign results, sales growth and early alerts to manufacturing issues. Analyzing structured and unstructured data together delivers the knowledge needed for better decision making.
