Analytics is fast becoming essential for making sense out of data, but in many organizations ad hoc analysis is strictly the domain of the technically savvy. With SAS Visual Analytics, everyone can use analytics to get day-to-day insight for making better decisions.
You don't have to be a rocket scientist – or even a data scientist – to use sophisticated analytics, because the analytics are fully integrated in an easy-to-use Web-based environment. No matter your skill level, you can ask your toughest questions, create compelling visualizations and share them with others – without having to learn new skills or engage IT. And if you do happen to have more analytic expertise, you can speed model development processes by quickly identifying areas that warrant further exploration and analysis, rather than resorting to trial and error.
Expand the culture of forecasting in your organization with easy-to-use capabilities that take the complexity out of forecasting, so that users of all skill levels can determine what might happen in the future. The software automatically chooses the most appropriate forecasting algorithm for the data you select. And built-in hierarchy creation capabilities let you slice and dice information based on all of the available data, without having to rely on IT. Interactive decision trees help you visualize potential outcomes.
What if you could not only visualize your data, but actually understand it as well? User-friendly features, such as "what does it mean" pop-ups, explain the analytics used in visualizations in everyday business terms that all users can understand. You can view descriptive statistics to gain an overall sense of a particular measure. And geographical map views easily convey the meaning of geospatial data.
