"New User to SAS"

What do you like best?

We primarily use SAS Base as our analtyical tool and I found with some basic SQL knowledge that the tool was very easy to learn. The documentation online is extremely useful. The tool is extremely powerful and you are often able to execute complex business questions. with just a few lines of code. The ability to build out macros is great.

What do you dislike?

I find the UI to be outdated and clunky compared with more modern tools. It could be easily improved by allowing the windows to snap or re-arrange automatically. On occasion the log will also cease to update and it is necessary to restart. Additionally the tool is not cheap so migrating to a newer version is often not economically feasible.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have some SQL background. It makes the tool much easier to pick up and much more powerful.

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

We use SAS for data management and analysis for sales, product, and marketing teams.

"Very useful and simple"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that it is well integrated with other SAS software and results can be made accessible to someone with almost no statistical background.

What do you dislike?

It can be pricey if you want the complete suite to prepare your data and share with numerous users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You have to know what your are going to use this product for. It meshes well with the other SAS tools. It can be cloud based if you do not wish to buy physical servers or have no control on your IT services.

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

I am analyzing datasets with a few million records from web servers and I can prepare more custom and faster reports that the project manager can "play" with.

"Decent Tool for BI"

What do you like best?

SAS Business Intelligence deploy real-time analytics directly to mobile devices and Microsoft applications

User interface is not very attractive, it seems a bit oldish. Also price is high relatively. Also less support online as compared to other "famous" BI tools like Tableau.

Spend some time and you'll be used to the UI and it will seem much easier and user friendly than initial impression

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

I am dealing with a large project data to improve productivity in a manufacturing firm. Best way is to find real time where are things lagging using this tool
