"SAS is essential for efficient data management and analyses"

What do you like best?

SAS has the capability to handle the large student record databases we use on a daily basis. SAS allows us to create foundational programming that analyzes data quickly. Once SAS programming language is learned users can create detailed programs that transform data in ways that are difficult to do manually.

What do you dislike?

SAS can be overwhelming for new users. It can have a steep learning curve depending on the users knowledge of programming.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have designed data programs that quickly provide results for stakeholders versus manually analyzing the data in tools like Excel. SAS is also able to handle very large data sets quickly which allows us to quickly assess programs and provide results.

"SAS, your statistics buddy!"

What do you like best?

I love this application. It is very versatile and user friendly especially to those who are new to statistical analysis. It makes code user friendly and easy to write. The data visual are also easily digestible especially if you're looking to analyse large data sets

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the application can stall especially when there is a lot of data to manipulate, but isn't this the case with all data analysis tools?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely worth a try. It may take some getting used to as it would with any tool but I definitely recommend it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This application provides data access to more of your data sources so you can make better decisions faster. They are out-of-the-box solutions that provide enterprise data access and integration between SAS and third-party databases

What Data Management Platform (DMP) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Excellent introduction to statistical coding"

What do you like best?

I like that SAS is very intuitive. For a new coder like me, SAS is clear about when you are making mistakes and where the errors are. It clearly highlights keywords and procedural words so that you know you are doing things correctly.

Additionally, there is a SAS page online that shows you how to do certain analyses. The step-by-step directions or videos show you how to complete each task and are very easy to follow for both novices and experts in coding. This is an amazing resource and I fully took advantage of it.

What do you dislike?

The "help" function is not as useful as I would like. If I'm having trouble with my code in SAS, I am more likely to google my issue than to use the Help tab within SAS.

There are occasionally glitches that prevent me from having multiple tabs up at once, or from getting an output screen. In these instances, I have to close down SAS entirely and restart. Also, error messages don't always clearly show you the issue in your code, so a lot of troubleshooting is necessary to understand where you went wrong.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Depending on what statistical software you are used to, SAS may be great or it may be confusing. Many of my coworkers prefer to use R, although with the datasets were analyze, SAS has proved to be very useful. However, if you are new to coding, I would recommend SAS as a way to get started. It is a fairly intuitive introduction to statistical coding and analysis.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SAS helps us organize huge population samples and run large-scale analyses on these cohorts. In research of this large scale, SAS is incredibly helpful to compartmentalize and analyze data. It allows us to make hypotheses about the health of different populations, which can in-turn help us protect the health of Americans!

"SAS 9.4 with Healthcare Data"

What do you like best?

SAS is a very easy to use software that doesn't require a substantial amount of coding experience. The macros are very useful and it is a software that is used in a number of industries that require data analytics. It doesn't freeze up like STATA.

What do you dislike?

More like the number of hours it takes to run a large dataset in SAS. This is more of a problem because of our limitations in computing power.

Recommendations to others considering the product

SAS 9.4 is a very helpful and appropriate software to use in the matter of administrative claims data.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use SAS for calculating HEDIS measures for millions of de-identified patients based on claims data around the United States.

"Excellent software for data analysis"

What do you like best?

I love that I can control the data and the variables by coding for everything in SAS. In other data analysis software, you can have very basic drop down menus like in Excel or SPSS. SAS is very quick and I can perform advanced data analysis coding.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that SAS could can a long time to export the code or data files. Sometimes I have to let the software sit for a few hours when trying to export coding.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work for a university and we use SAS to do data analysis on large software and data files such as hundreds of thousands of data from populations or entire country populations. We use SAS every day to analyze data sets.

"A must-have SAS module"

What do you like best?

What I like most about the SAS/Access interfaces is that they allow one to easily analyze data regardless of whether one has any experience with the data source

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike about the SAS/Access interfaces is that they each have to be purchased separately.

Recommendations to others considering the product

An essential product, but must be purchased separately for each external data source

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've used the interface, mostly, when working with Microsoft products (e.g., Excel and Access). The interface has made the use of external data basically seamless

Once you have a code for your data set its easy breezy to use. But you need to do some work on the code before using it for your data accordingly.

What do you dislike?

Writing code can be little tricky sometimes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it to run stats on our data sets big or small which we generate in our labs
