SAS BI

IT managers deploying SAS Enterprise BI Server can make use of previous investments, integrate BI capabilities quickly into existing environments and get decision makers the information they need. When they need it. This, with the added benefit of freeing resources from tedious tasks to focus on more strategic projects, ensures that IT is a driving force behind organizational success.

From a functional perspective, the most common applications for any SAS solution are planning, budgeting, financial consolidation, compliance reporting and forecasting, general data warehouse reporting/ dashboarding, and sales and marketing analysis. SAS can do all of these things using a variety of approaches (pieces and parts of the BI platform). One of the ways to look at all of these tools is by looking at the features and functions of BI offerings in general then map these appropriately to the SAS offerings.  One of the most powerful aspects of the SAS 9 BI environment is the ability to create centralized definitions of business logic (i.e., SAS programs via Stored Processes) or data (via Information Maps) and to automatically have those definitions available across the business via a variety of tools designed specifically 9 for particular purposes. The SAS9 Enterprise BI Server facilities for surfacing data tools are considered to be the most important ‘integration points’ of the SAS BI Platform. The BI Framework is a web-based tool that works with the Information Delivery Portal to display dashboards of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
