SAS Office Analytics for Midsize Business is an easy-to-use, affordable solution that puts the power of SAS Analytics directly in users' hands via a familiar Microsoft Office environment. Small and midsize business users can employ SAS for data access, management, sophisticated analytics and reporting, without analytical expertise or IT support. The solution enables users to explore data for emerging trends and insights into customers and markets – and gives decision makers the accurate, fact-based information they need to act quickly and with confidence.
Access a single, consistent view of data.
Users can access and consolidate data from different operational systems to get a unified view of the most recent information. Instead of building their own data extracts, users can take the most recent data from operational systems and populate Excel, Word, PowerPoint files or SharePoint portals. No longer will they have different versions of the same report.
Make business users self-sufficient.
By taking advantage of the proven capabilities of advanced SAS Analytics directly from familiar Microsoft Office applications, business users can get predictive insights rather than just summaries and basic graphs. So they can be assured of having the up-to-date information needed for accurate analysis, while eliminating problems associated with intermediate summarized data formats.
Get faster, better results with easy-to-use tools.
An intuitive query interface lets users access large amounts of data and view results directly in Excel. Guided analysis lets them analyze data, schedule projects, share results and embed them into Office applications.
Free IT for more strategic tasks.
Single, centralized data access and control ensures that users have appropriate access privileges and can react quickly to evolving business demands. Because users are self-sufficient, IT is freed from tedious maintenance and ad hoc query and reporting tasks.
Satisfy corporate and governmental compliance regulations.
With SAS, you can produce repeatable results using validated data and processes that are easily documented and verified for corporate and governmental compliance. Imagine how much time can be saved – no more tracking down which report is the correct one.
