SAS in Leaders quadrant for business intelligence

SAS was placed in the Leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms. Gartner describes vendors in the Leaders quadrant as “reasonably strong in breadth and depth of business intelligence (BI) platform capabilities, and delivering enterprisewide implementations supporting a broad BI strategy.

Leaders articulate a business proposition that resonates with buyers, supported by the viability and operational capability to deliver globally.” “SAS’ complete business analytics portfolio arms customers with powerful forecasting, predictive modeling, optimization, as well as data integration and reporting,” said Jim Davis, SAS Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer.

“We believe the Gartner report validates what our customers already recognize and employ for competitive advantage.” SAS’ customer base, which ranges from small businesses to global corporations, includes more customers that depend upon predictive analytics and data mining than any other BI vendor. “SAS customers recognize that knowing what happened in their businesses is good, but knowing what will happen is invaluable because they can manage proactively,” Davis said.

An integral part of its proven business analytics, SAS’ broad set of horizontal and industry-specific business solutions provide insights for quick action. Powered by core technology such as SAS® Enterprise BI Server, SAS helps organizations answer complex questions, especially in a challenging economy.
