German S&L, Badenia, deepens analyses, frees up reporting with SAS®

SAS® Visual Analytics helps German savings and loan leader reduce costs, simplify processes

Badenia AG was looking for faster distribution of information when users need it. One of Germany’s leading private savings and loans institutions, Badenia is integrating SAS® Visual Analytics into its existing SAS platform, simplifying its business processes and reducing costs.

Instead of relying on push technology, the company is providing instant access to current data via SAS Visual Analytics, an in-memory data exploration and visualization solution.

The firm can now make quicker, better decisions – less time processing data means more time to create value from it. Badenia especially liked how the user-friendly Web interface of SAS serves more users. And eliminating intermediate steps for report preparation has decreased errors.

Badenia will increase efficiency by using metadata in its existing SAS platform to inform current and future business decisions more quickly. Everyone will benefit from seeing greater detail and faster data delivery.

"SAS Visual Analytics helps us interact more with our data, offering new and exciting analytical opportunities," said Andreas Windisch, Data Warehouse Expert at Badenia. "Significantly improving data access and simplifying report creation will ultimately provide benefits for all our users. For more than 20 years, Badenia has confidently relied on SAS for proven technology."
