Operate more efficiently and productively. With automated data management and analytic processes, your resources can be more productive – which means less time spent on tedious processes, like manipulating data in spreadsheets, and accessing and integrating disparate data.
Stay focused on the mission. Make more informed decisions and support enduring mission needs with analytic engines that are fed by the most complete, accurate and up-to-date data possible.
Trustworthy insights from more complete data. Higher productivity from scarce resources, who don't have time to sort through huge amounts of data to find what they need. And better efficiencies, lower costs and reduced risk. Our defense and security software can help you proactively manage and visualize big data through a single, world-class platform for:
Intelligence sharing. Tap into a comprehensive, shared pool of data to get a big-picture view of all the relevant information needed to guide decision making.
Data sharing/integration. Work together more effectively by integrating data from nearly any source and interactively exchanging it between different platforms.
Data quality. Ensure accuracy by cleansing and standardizing all your data – all sizes, all sources, all formats.
Master data management. Get a common, consistent view of data across all your applications and systems.
Metadata management. Use an intuitive, web-based interface to capture and document metadata throughout transformations and data integration processes.
Event stream processing. Make the right decisions using real-time data that’s analyzed immediately as it’s received.
Big data visualization. Visually explore huge volumes of data in just seconds, then drill down in areas that require deeper analysis.
Derive intelligence from big data – from nearly any source and format, including Hadoop. Evaluate many potential courses of action. And make the right decisions – faster, and based on more complete data. With SAS, you can:
Conduct faster, deeper analysis on all your data assets. Bring together data from all sources – using your data analytics platform of choice – for a more comprehensive view of each situation. View circumstances from every possible angle. Identify anomalies or trends, and solve complex problems through advanced analytics. Then take quick, decisive action.
Reduce the burden of data preparation. Automatically extract, transform and load data from virtually any source. Cleanse and standardize data with minimal manual intervention. And do it all in a fraction of the time it would normally take.
See what your data is saying. Use sophisticated visual analytic techniques to understand all your relevant data – no matter how big or complex it is – and see the results immediately. Make interacting with big data easy for everyone.
SAS put us straight on track to achieve the operational efficiency we wanted and, in practical terms, this can mean ensuring a police officer arrives at the right address when trying to apprehend a criminal.
A cohesive, analytics-based approach to tackling threats that’s both effective and efficient. A single platform and unified view for all agencies – across all stages of the intelligence life cycle. And early warnings – plus faster responses to security threats – today and tomorrow. We offer proven defense and security software for your highest priorities:
Greater efficiency. Process and analyze large volumes of information, then safely manage and disseminate it to improve intelligence, reduce crime and protect citizens.
Intelligence lifecycle management. Direct, track and audit information as it moves through systems – from planning and collecting to processing, analyzing and disseminating.
Border management. Give agents a complete picture of all information to dynamically distinguish between suspicious and legitimate travelers and freight.
Preventive policing. Analyze and simulate risks for more targeted, productive investigations and successful crime prevention.
Open-source intelligence and counterintelligence. Collect, visualize and analyze enormous amounts of structured and unstructured data from multiple intelligence sources. Then deepen knowledge and situational awareness by presenting results in graphical or geospatial formats.
Counterterrorism. Quickly find and assess terrorist risks posed by illegitimate travel and trade, and suspicious financial or cyberactivities.
Access, integrate, cleanse and standardize security data from virtually any source or format. Interactively exchange information across different platforms and agencies. And reduce security threats by uncovering hidden connections and sending alerts to people on the front lines. SAS helps you to:
Be more proactive. Correctly identify travelers using watch lists. Alert agents about high-risk passengers or cargo before they arrive. And accurately spot fraud and crime rings using predictive and text analytics.
Recognize all types of security threats. Quickly unearth previously unknown and abnormal patterns of behavior using data mining and predictive analytics. Spot the changing tactics of those trying to avoid detection using data that’s timely and relevant. And reveal unnoticed connections between suspicious entities using link analysis.
Keep the nation safe. Discover trends, patterns and sentiments in large volumes of multilingual content that may signal trouble. Use advanced statistical modeling, natural language processing and sophisticated linguistic technologies to automatically extract concepts and events. And apply scoring models to improve accuracy and reduce false positives.
The benefits of working with SAS extend beyond the functionality of the solutions. For Project Odyssey in general, and for us in particular, one of the key advantages of using SAS software was that it was backed by one of the world's leading and most highly respected software companies.
Well-prepared forces that have what they need, when and where they need it. The ability to accurately anticipate supply shortages. And identification of maintenance issues before they become costly. Our defense and security software includes supply chain analytics for:
Predictive maintenance. Identify emerging issues that could cause bigger problems down the road, with a point-and-click, web-based interface to access key maintenance and reliability performance indicators.
Demand forecasting. Recognize demand signals from a multitude of sources, for more accurate forecasting results.
Supply chain analytics. Get a single, comprehensive view of the entire supply chain to know where your assets are at all times.
