SAS named a leader for enterprise insight platforms by independent research firm

SAS has been named a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Insight Platforms, Q1 2019. The report noted that “SAS Viya is a modern architecture with a single high-performance analytical engine. SAS’ platform also features the tightest integration we saw between different analytics capabilities, data preparation and governance.”

Today's successful organisations are driven by analytical insights, not intuition. SAS® Viya® on the SAS Platform provides companies with industry-leading analytics to fuel business decisions with both speed and scalability.

“Modern businesses require a platform that orchestrates data management, analytics and development tools in order to gain insights that power decisions,” said Iain Brown, Head of Data Science, SAS UK & Ireland. “Generating both rapid and accurate results is vital. SAS Viya provides this support across the entire analytics life cycle – from data to discovery and deployment.”

The report states: “SAS has a top-notch visual, predictive and streaming analytics toolset. … Support for notebooks, programming for multiple languages, and more cloud options round out SAS Viya and make it a good choice for firms with mission-critical analytics needs.”
