" One thing I like about SAS is that it's integrated. It performs data management and analytics well, which is helpful because it streamlines the process and reduces errors. I also like the visualizations, especially the statistical graphics. Being able to visualize the information and present it to decision makers, while looking for and discovering trends, is very important."

How SAS® Is Different

SAS Visual Data Discovery for Midsize Business lets users interactively explore data for hidden trends, investigate patterns and reveal opportunities through visual queries – without relying on costly IT support. The solution:

  • Overcomes the inherent limitations in spreadsheets, static graphs, charts and tabular reports by providing a nonprogramming environment for exploratory data analysis.
  • Includes a full range of advanced analytics tightly integrated with interactive data visualization for exploratory analysis, all in one package, at an affordable price.
  • Levels the playing field for small to midsize businesses, giving them the same analytic capabilities that only larger enterprises could afford in the past.
  • Produces repeatable results that are easily documented and verified to meet corporate and government compliance standards.

Benefits

  • Make faster, better fact-based decisions. Using JMP software as an interface to SAS analytical solutions, the software lets users visualize and explore data interactively in a point-and-click environment. Viewing and sharing information in compelling ways enhances analytic effectiveness and can reveal new insights that support faster, better decisions.
  • Help business users be self-sufficient. Through an interface that makes it easy to access and analyze data from disparate systems and sources, the software helps business users to fully leverage information assets and run queries and analyses – without relying on costly, limited IT support.
  • Reduce costs and complexity. A full range of analysis, reporting and visualization capabilities in one package – at an affordable price – reduces the cost of licensing, maintenance, training and support, and ensures that consistent information is available across the enterprise.
  • Achieve corporate and governmental compliance. Produce repeatable results that are easily documented and verified so you can meet the requirements of auditors and regulators.
  • Compete with larger peers. SAS statistical capabilities are constantly updated to reflect the latest advances in statistical methodology. And SAS delivers a superior level of technical support from experts in the field.
