SAS Administration Services – The Core Benefits
As a global analytics provider to firms and organisations all around the world, SAS software is transforming how organisations operate and do business. With an abundance of applications to choose from, organisations have a plethora of options to choose from and leverage in their analytics processes. While this is undeniably a positive thing, one of the major downsides is that the presence of so many options means that organisations now need to expand their personnel and financial bandwidth to make sure they are leveraging these insights appropriately. Organisations, both large and small in scale, will increasingly struggle to handle the increasing volumes of data – especially data leveraged through SAS software – which is why SAS administration services are so valuable.
So, why are SAS administration services so important? As the analytics space has become increasingly complex and as unprecedented amounts of data are now being made available to organisations from all parts of the world, leveraging this data the right way is becoming equally important. Failing to leverage this data appropriately and efficiently could result in organisations wasting significant amounts of time and resources – which would undoubtedly hurt the organisation’s analytics ROI in the long-term.
Organisations have two options to alleviate this. On one front, they could opt to employ a team of full-time, in-house SAS experts who are dedicated to ensuring that the SAS environments they are responsible for are installed, maintained, and regularly updated when required. The second option businesses have is to opt for consultants who have dedicated teams focused on providing various organisations with these same services. Here at Selerity, our team has provided multiple organisations with seamless SAS administration services – allowing them to leverage their analytics and insights in a manner best suited to enhance their operations.
What are the core benefits of Selerity’s SAS administration services?
The most obvious benefit of our SAS administration services is that they instantly alleviate the burden of businesses having to focus on setting up, managing, and monitoring their SAS environments accurately and efficiently. One thing that happens quite regularly with strained in-house SAS administrators is that the systems are sometimes set up incorrectly, which results in these organisations not gaining access to the best insights. With our expert SAS administration services in place, organisations can rest assured knowing that their entire analytics environment is in the safe hands of certified service providers. Remember, in our fast-paced world of modern business, convenience and reduced burdens are priceless.
On the topic of prices and costing, our SAS administration services are actually available to our clients at just a fraction of the cost of having a full-time, in-house administrator – keep in mind that this is not including any additional in-house support staff who may be required to support an in-house administrator. What does this mean? Organisations can leverage the most up-to-date services and expertise without the added burden of having to manage and maintain full-time personnel – leverage the best and most insightful organisational analytics with ease.
Our three core SAS administration services
Selerity’s SAS administration services are uniquely catered to serving the various needs of organisations. Our service offering is divided into three specific segments – SAS Administration – Basic, SAS Administration – Standard, and SAS Administration – Custom. The illustration below specifies this categorisation of services in detail.
Our services have been uniquely categorised to fit our clients’ requirements. While the Basic and Standard packages are among our most sought after, we recognise the unique needs and specifications many business, both large and small, may have, which is why we offer a Custom service offering. Our administration services vary from single server coverage in the Basic offering to covering a 3-Tier environment in the Standard offering to potentially covering multiple servers in a Custom setup.
Our administration services include monthly and quarterly SAS environment maintenance conducted by our team, regular SAS Hot Fixes, and access to an online SAS environment performance dashboard.
