SAS® business intelligence platform "formidable," says independent research firm

Report cites "excellent capabilities" in analytics; ranks SAS a leader in Enterprise Business Intelligence Platforms

In naming SAS a leader in The Forrester Wave™ Enterprise Business Intelligence Platforms, Q4 2013, Forrester Research, Inc., noted that "SAS customers particularly praised its data integration, information delivery, technical architecture, analytics, operational capabilities, and corporate and product vision"

The independent research firm evaluated three SAS® BI products:

Ten other vendors were included in the report.

"SAS isn't just about analytics - it also provides an enterprise grade BI platform. Although firms have known SAS as a leader in advanced and predictive analytics for years, don't overlook the fact that it also has a formidable BI platform," stated the report authored by Forrester analyst Boris Evelson.

Forrester examined 72 criteria in three broad categories:

  • Current offerings were assessed for features and capabilities. A product demonstration and a survey of customers were also used in the evaluation.
  • Strategy was evaluated against how well each vendor planned to meet future customer needs. A company’s financial support for strategy, pricing and licensing strategy was also considered.
  • Market presence was established by combining, horizontal and vertical industry applications, number of employees across major geographical regions, installed customer base and financial performance

"Whether it's a global enterprise seeking visualization and big data insight in Hadoop or a departmental workgroup wanting self-service reporting and dashboards, SAS BI delivers," said Jim Davis, SAS Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. "With innovation like SAS Visual Analytics in-memory technology, the accessibility of SAS Analytics via popular Microsoft Office applications, and the advanced analytics underlying our entire portfolio, customers can expect exceptional return on investment from SAS."
