Gartner describes vendors in the Leaders quadrant as âreasonably strong in breadth and depth of business intelligence (BI) platform capabilities, and delivering enterprise-wide 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.â
âSASâ complete business analytics portfolio arms customers with powerful forecasting, predictive modeling, optimisation, as well as data integration and reporting,â said Jim Davis, SAS Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. âWe believe the Gartner report validates what our customers already recognise and employ for competitive advantage.â
