The only way we rise above the rest is when our customers do.

“SAS customers benefit greatly from the widest and most capable advanced analytics product portfolio, with many of those applications and solutions targeted at very specific business purposes, and others suitable for a wide range of applications,” said Sascha Schubert, SAS Analytics Global Marketing Director. “Our customers span many industries and use SAS® advanced analytics to increase revenue, improve business processes and save costs. It’s all about helping businesses compete in an increasingly complex world.”

Schubert noted that SAS provides sophisticated machine learning that integrates well with open source software packages to meet data scientists’ needs. The focus continues to be on Hadoop, in-memory processing, cloud integration and large-scale modeling requirements. SAS advanced analytics is also at the core of the company’s purpose-built applications such as SAS Fraud Management, SAS Cybersecurity, SAS Asset Performance Analytics, SAS Energy Forecasting and SAS Demand Planning.


The rapid growth in available data, particularly new sources of data, requires greater levels of sophistication from users and systems to be able to capture its full potential.
