SAS a strong performer in data governance tools according to independent research firm

SAS is a “Strong Performer” in “The Forrester Wave™: Data Governance Tools, Q2 2014” from Forrester Research Inc. The new report details how well each reviewed vendor fulfills Forrester’s criteria and where they sit according the data governance 2.0 journey. According to the report, “Data governance has shifted from a technology management endeavor to a business imperative,” and SAS® Data Governance is “well positioned to manage data governance for the SAS Analytics and Marketing solution.”

SAS was among a select group of 10 companies that Forrester invited to participate in the report. The companies were examined on 25 criteria including current offering, strategy and market presence. The report notes that data governance can provide a key competitive advantage for businesses.

According to Forrester, “It is not enough to collect data policies and rules; business data stewards need capabilities that align to the processes and management of data as a ‘new’ business asset.”

“In the age of big data, constituents across all business units can benefit from having the right access to the right data at the right time,” said Matthew Magne, Global Product Marketing Manager for Data Management at SAS. “Proper data governance is an important business imperative and will enable better collaboration throughout the organization. SAS software’s role-based interface allows personnel in any department to easily understand and manipulate business data that is relevant to their role.

“SAS has long been delivering data governance technology and consulting services with a focus on data profiling to better understand data at its source, pinpoint potential problems and promote collaboration. When used in conjunction with SAS’ analytics capabilities, customers can fully explore, visualize and understand their business data.”
