SAS®9 provides an integrated platform for delivering enterprise intelligence. This platform, which we call the SAS Enterprise Intelligence Platform, optimally integrates individual technology components within your existing IT infrastructure into a single, unified system. The result is an information flow that transcends organizational silos, diverse computing platforms and niche tools – and delivers new insights that drive value for your organization.

The SAS Enterprise Intelligence Platform extends the value of your existing systems while setting the stage for new levels of enterprise intelligence not previously possible. It includes the following components:

  • SAS Data Integration provides prebuilt, high-performance capabilities for data connectivity, data quality, ETL (extract, transform and load), data migration, data synchronization and data federation.
  • SAS Intelligence Storage is a dedicated solution that efficiently stores and disseminates information for business intelligence and analytic requirements, offering relational and OLAP storage options from the same foundational inputs.
  • SAS Analytics is an integrated environment for predictive and descriptive modeling, forecasting, optimization, simulation, experimental design and more. SAS Analytics leverage existing data and infrastructures to support effective decision making and integration into business intelligence environments.
  • SAS Business Intelligence delivers a set of BI capabilities that enable different types of users to surface meaningful intelligence from consistent, companywide data.

As part of an integrated platform, all components and services are managed from a single point, reducing the administrative effort for maintenance of applications, users and security. Data consistency is assured because metadata is stored in a single metadata repository and is shared across all SAS technologies and solutions.

Using the SAS Enterprise Intelligence Platform as a foundation, SAS®9 offers targeted business solutions that support enterprise intelligence, customer intelligence, financial intelligence, supply chain intelligence and more – as well as turnkey solutions for various vertical markets, such as financial services, life sciences, health care, retail, manufacturing and others.

No matter where your organization is on the path toward evolving information capabilities, SAS can adapt to your situation and drive intelligence evolution to the next level, while leveraging and extending the value of your existing IT investments.
