"SAS for health research"

What do you like best?

Data management capabilities. SAS bridge with ArcGIS (although this could be and will be updated to deal with big data) it's a step in the right direction. Macro capabilities

What do you dislike?

No command window. It would be nice to have a command window similar to R or STATA where you can test code without have to write it in the SAS system program file. Also, R's ability to download various packages is very nice and I think SAS would benefit from this. Length of code to run a simple regression.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Understand what your plan before you buy the product. If you do a bunch of data management, then consider SAS. If not, maybe consider a different software

"Sas Data Quality Review"

What do you like best?

What I like best about SAS is that you can statistically analyze complex and meaningful data. With SAS, public health workers can identify risk factors for certain diseases and further research remedies or treatments.

What do you dislike?

It takes training and education to use the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For those who are considering SAS Data Quality, this software can be tailored to your needs no matter what industry you are in or what part of the world you are in. This software is especially helpful if you have a vast amount of data to analyze such as health, education, programs, tests, demographic data, etc.

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

We are analyzing health risk factors. The main benefit is that with better analytics you are likely to have high quality data and research. SAS makes it possible to solve public health issues in a timely manner.

"SAS Software Packages for Ease in Data analysis and Quality"

What do you like best?

I was educationally trained in SAS. For me the best features of this software are the simple coding language, SAS support, and variation of data analysis procedures that can be done on the software. Primarily, I use the software to analyze public health data. The software has great functionality when you need to look at descriptive statistics, regressions, and even time-series analysis. The good thing about SAS is that even though it is a challenging learn, it is repetitive in nature. And the Log output gives you feedback when you make an error, which is better compared to using STATA.

What do you dislike?

A lot can be done with SAS, but it does require some training. SAS is not something you can easily pick up. It requires some background knowledge on what each procedure does (ex: reg, glm, freq, means, genmod). It also requires you to know what steps can go into each procedure. However, SAS Support is a great aid which helps explain all that you need to know to use the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is pricey, but it will meet all your advanced data analysis needs.

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

SAS is a software that can analyze large and complex data-sets, which is important in public health.

"Data Analytics Dream"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to learn and adaptable in nature, it has a strong data capability feature, and with each update there is an update of the strength of the product over all. It can be used in various scenarios and not limited to just some data sets.

What do you dislike?

It is a very expensive software that lacks in the customization capabilities that would help make the final product a lot clearer and more interactive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If it is a start-up there are way more easier programs that are flexible in nature than SAS and what they can provide. SAS i sbest to learn first since it is the universal language in data analytics and provides a vast background needed to understand other programs further downstream.

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

Through using SAS i have been able to examine the strength of drug product versus cost within the business and being able to analyze and graph the information in order to assess what would be best to move into the market next.

"A High Powered Analysis Tool"

What do you like best?

SAS is a great tool for doing high-level, more complex analyses like Statistical Equation Modeling, Cluster Analysis, etc., but isn't the best solution if you need to do something relatively simple like running a cross-tab analysis, simple t test, etc.

What do you dislike?

It's not the most user friendly platform, that's for sure. It used to be entirely syntax based, although recently they've added the ability to do click menus, which is really nice. I don't use it all THAT often, since SPSS has really stepped up their game recently and is able to handle the majority of my needs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a solid tool for more advanced analytics and complex things, but if you need something simpler, just go with SPSS.

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

SAS is great for when I have a complex analysis that I need to run myself and I'm pressed for time. Usually I would outsource this to another analyst, but if I need to do something quick and dirty, SAS is a great tool for that.

"No more biased results due to data errors!"

What do you like best?

We deal day to day with data and there were instances in the past where we generated partial insights due to data not being well prepared before we ran the analysis. But with SAS data quality, we no more face this issue. It cleans the data for us and lets us concentrate on our core problem rather than spending enormous amounts of time in data cleaning

What do you dislike?

SAS is an expensive tool for small firms. Only if you are getting bulk licenses - you get a good price.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it if you are looking for accurate insights from your data.

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

We were trying to understand customer retention for our prepaid debit cards. Our teams put in hours of man hours to clean the data - removing outliers, taking unbiased samples, understanding true correlations etc. (We used to draw box plots etc. to remove outliers) Even after all this exercise we were not accurate. This is where SAS Data Quality helped us improve our data quality and proceed while saving lot of man hours. We re-ran the logistic regression with the cleaned data and the results were satisfactory

"SAS"

What do you like best?

SAS is comparable to other softwares for data analysis. I use it for educational research that required multiple regression and descriptive statistics. SAS has any statistical procedure I needed to run in a university setting. SAS Social Media Analytics seems like a very neat tool that I would like to use in the future. I prefer this software when I have to analysis large sets of data.

What do you dislike?

SAS is not as user friendly and I had to seek assistance on multiple occasions. I had received training on statistical procedures but do not consider myself a statistician, therefore, it was important for me to find something that was easy to use. For example, you have to know programing code and remember it for analysis. Although, I did not pay for my use of it when I considered purchasing my own; I found that it was more expensive than other available softwares.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are knowledgable about statistics, then this program will be easier to use than if you are a novice. It has a wide range of capabilities including basic and advanced statistical analysis for a university setting. It is more costly than other software programs but is great for large datasets.

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

Educational research was the one use I had for SAS; specifically multiple regression and descriptive statistics. It was provided free of charge which was a strong benefit and met my immediate needs.

"My experience with SAS."

What do you like best?

As a student researcher, I was able to use SAS for free online.

What do you dislike?

I had to be online to use SAS, and downloading SAS for mac computers is slightly more problematic than using a regular PC.

Recommendations to others considering the product

SAS is useful, but takes time to learn. Finding a good course would be necessary to use SAS.

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

I am in the public health field. SAS helps me with looking at associations of an exposure and an outcome, as well as, doing things such as logistical regressions.

"SAS usage for health insurance research"

What do you like best?

I like the ability to conduct various types of analyses in sas useful towards research in health care policy. While steps are not as intuitive as I am familiar with (using STATA), they did come with ease quicker. This may be because I am familiar with another programming language.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that sas guide and regular sas do not have the same functions. In regular sas, I have to write a code to produce excel output. In sas guide, there's is an easy way to do this manually.

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

I analyze large sets of insurance claims data and am able to extract specific information by drug line, provider, etc. I can examine the relationship between multiple data sets to target answers for clients.

"Complicated and difficult to understand"

What do you like best?

The data output is more clear than with other analysis softwares.

What do you dislike?

The interface is extremely difficult, and the programming language is not at all intuitive. The guide materials are horrendous. Guides written in plain language for lay users would be extremely helpful, but your guides are incomprehensible and patronizing. The fact that this software is not mac compatible is ridiculous, and the biggest reason I used a competitor's product.

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

I do data analysis frequently for my clients but chose to use a superior data software.

"SAS Candid Review"

What do you like best?

I really appreciate SAS' straightforward nature. Once you have a bank of the most relevant and frequent code you'll be using, its simply plugging and chugging from there.

What do you dislike?

While it is easy in nature, when you get a very long line of code its easy to make one minute mistake that will render the rest of your code is ineffective.

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

We are able to analyze and easily manage a LARGE set of meta-data with SAS. Without a system like SAS, our time required for certain projects would be astronomical

"Good data management tool"

What do you like best?

the flow chart-like interface that clearly demonstrate how each data sources are integrated, matched, and cleaned in each step.

What do you dislike?

the visual presentation or visual analytics can be enhanced. Although multiple data sources can be managed simultaneously, there are other subject-specific issues, such as multiple names of the same individual, when merging the data.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy-to-use tool with visual presentation.

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

multiple justice data sources (e.g., law enforcement, court, corrections) can be well integrated and managed. The official records can be well integrated with public survey data.
