SAS launches results-as-a-service to deliver advanced analytic insights with no staff, infrastructure required
There’s a gold mine of business insights buried beneath mountains of data. But without the expertise or technology to dig it out, these insights had been out of reach for many organisations. Until now. SAS® Results, a cloud-based results-as-a-service offering from the analytics leader, delivers both affordable analytical power and SAS expertise – customers provide the data, SAS delivers the answers. And, some organisations have already seen ROIs as high as 600 per cent from using SAS Results.
“Organisations of all sizes can benefit from SAS Results, and it’s an option that may be especially attractive to small- and medium-sized enterprises,” said Sanjeev Aggarwal, analyst with SMB Group, a firm focused on the technology needs of small and medium businesses. “Our research suggests that gaining better insights from data is a high priority for SMBs, and being able to get data-based answers quickly without the barriers of infrastructure and analytical expertise are high priorities.”
Organisations using SAS Results already include:
- A U.S. auto manufacturer uses SAS Results to analyse connected vehicle data and track fleet performance.
- A U.S. clothing manufacturer and retailer uses SAS Results to understand differences among local markets’ buying patterns, preferences and consumer trends.
- A large county government uses SAS Results to uncover new heart attack treatments that extend survival rates.
