SAS® Text Analytics
Get more out of your unstructured data
With SAS, you can get insights from electronic text data regardless of format or location. SAS Text Analytics uses sophisticated linguistic rules and statistical methods to evaluate text like a human mind would – minus the inconsistency and ambiguity. It automatically determines keywords and topics, categorizes content, manages semantic terms, unearths sentiment and puts things in context. So you can interpret customers' opinions, improve products, optimize services, streamline processes and make proactive, fact-based decisions.
