SAS leads predictive and advanced analytics with commanding share, says analyst report

SAS again tops all predictive and advanced analytics suppliers, according to the IDC report, IDC Worldwide Business Intelligence and Analytics Tools Software Market Shares, 2015: It’s Still About Self-Service.

With the most recent study showing SAS with a 31.6 per cent share for 2015, the company has always held the largest share in advanced and predictive analytics software (table 3), and has demonstrated continued growth since IDC began tracking the market in 1997.

Culture of innovation

“Analytics is the lifeblood of SAS. Our reputation is built on developing analytics software that delivers real value to our customers today and will continue to do so in the future,” said Hugo D'Ulisse, Head of Analytical Platform, SAS UK & Ireland. “Every day, we help organisations turn large amounts of data into knowledge they can use. We are attuned to the needs of our customers and are able to build software that they can grow with.”
