Today’s enterprise CEOs recognize that business analytics are critical to the success of many functions, such as marketing, product pricing, demand prediction, supply chain optimization, and customer relationship management. Incorporating analytics into your business can increase revenues, improve processes, reduce costs, and help you to more effectively target customers. Insightful analytics changes how everyday, fundamental business decisions are made.
Savvy strategists recognize that combining data from across their platforms might well hold the key to making better informed decisions. Further, they recognize that SAS is the software that can effectively drive the transformation of their enterprise, from the fundamentals up through the business. With SAS, enterprises can shape big data into practical decisions that differentiate and innovate. By using SAS, you can harness data from throughout your enterprise, to integrate it, and to then act upon it as quickly as your success demands. SAS is at home in the IBM® zEnterprise® environment and is aligned with an IBM strategy to help you fully use your network in what is, by necessity, an increasingly multiplatform IT world.
