SAS, the global leader in business analytics, has been named Best for Business Analytic Software for the UK in Wealth & Finance International’s Finance Awards 2014. Winners were decided by a combination of votes gathered from their network of respected industry partners and its own rigorous in-house research.
Wealth & Finance was particularly impressed by the way SAS is able to tackle business problems facing a range of industries, for example credit risk management in financial services, expediting drugs to market in life sciences and identifying cross-sell opportunities in retail. The firm’s cross-functional solution lines address challenges facing every organisation, regardless of industry.
It was also noted that SAS facilitates business and IT collaboration in achieving real data asset management, leading to better business decisions – whether that’s reducing risk or delivering efficiency savings. A suite of intuitive interfaces and the ability to deploy real-time analytics directly to mobile devices, helps every decision-maker monitor key metrics and make informed decisions.
Mark Wilkinson, Managing Director at SAS UK & Ireland, commented: “We are delighted to have been recognised for our leading big data analytics solutions with this award. Not only are we able to provide solutions to established users of analytics across a range of industries, but we can also deliver solutions and services to smaller and medium-sized businesses new to this field. This is becoming increasingly important as more and more organisations recognise the need to make more and better use of data to inform decision-making.”
The 2014 Finance Awards were developed to recognise and reward excellence, best practice and innovation in finance, open to individuals and firms operating and working in a wide range of industries, including personal finance, corporate finance, accountancy and financial management.
Wealth & Finance has welcomed nominations for firms throughout the globe, from very small niche practices to large corporations, and have ensured that those who do go on to win one of these highly sought-after awards have been selected on merit and are based upon the votes received, the further evidence supplied and based on its own in-house research.
