SAS advances enterprise intelligence with significant software release

17 March 2008

SAS today launched SAS® 9.2, the latest evolution in enterprise software. SAS 9.2 combines market-leading advanced analytics, data visualisation and collaborative data management capabilities that go beyond standard query-and-reporting BI solutions.

Organisations are under increasing pressure to leverage data and existing IT investments to drive success. SAS helps organisations meet the challenge with this latest enhancement to the industry’s first and most complete Enterprise Intelligence Platform.

“SAS 9.2 is revolutionary and evolutionary,” said Jim Davis, Senior Vice President and CMO at SAS. “Businesses burned by technology vendors more interested in stock prices than customers will appreciate SAS’ unrelenting focus on innovation and meeting customer needs. SAS 9.2 is non-disruptive innovation. It helps companies gather and analyse data and share intelligence for quicker, more accurate business decisions.”

Beginning today with existing SAS customers and continuing throughout 2008, every offering from SAS will become available on SAS 9.2 to transform organisations from report-driven to intelligence-driven.

"With its enhanced analytics and data integration, improved deployment and management, and shared processes that help BI and analytics become even more widespread and useable throughout an organisation, SAS 9.2 is a major launch for SAS and its customers," said Henry Morris, Senior Vice President for IDC's Worldwide Software and Services research groups. "The SAS Enterprise Intelligence Platform goes beyond traditional BI in providing a foundation for collaborative data integration, advanced analytics and timely reporting."
