Working together - meeting your business needs
SAS provides a full range of flexible consulting services to meet our customers' short- or long-term business needs. From initial business analysis to final delivery, our consulting services help organisations reap the benefits of SAS software as quickly as possible. In today's increasingly global market, consistency in information delivery is more vital than ever, and SAS Consulting services can help focus the power of SAS software solutions to the unique needs of our customers. SAS consultants spend time listening and learning about a customer's organisation and its business environment before recommending solutions that will maximise the company's return on investment in SAS software and services.
Developing Strategies with Bottom - Line Results
All consulting projects are undertaken on a partnership basis; our goal being to bring together our consultants' industry-leading skills and technical expertise and the customer's knowledge relating to the business issues relevant to their business. Experience has shown that projects are successful when driven jointly by business and IT staff, and our methodology is focused on creating a team from both areas to work together.
SAS consultants are business and industry experts, applications developers, project managers, statisticians, and other business and IT professionals. Consulting services from SAS combine a breadth of business experience and state-of-the-art technology to turn business and technical strategies into real competitive advantage. Hands-on experience in a broad range of industries has led to proven successes in pharmaceuticals, banking and financial services, insurance, retail, health care, telecommunications, manufacturing, and others.
SAS will work with you to qualify, assess and analyse the consulting service needs of your staff or organisation. A primary objective is to encourage all customers to become self sufficient in the deployment and use of the product, so a skills transfer element is a fundamental component of the service.
