Analytics headaches that the best SAS services alleviate
Data and analytics are here to stay – especially when they’re pulled through SAS’ powerful analytics platform and its many partners around the world who provide the best SAS services. Together, SAS and its partners are delivering unprecedented insights in a way we’ve never seen before. This trend is only going to continue.
Still, data and analytics come with their fair share of headaches and complexities that often leave managers and administrators scratching their heads. With so many data points out there, how can you be sure you’re using insights that will add value to your organisation? Or, perhaps more importantly, how can you ensure you’re pulling the right data?
With many organisations, big and small, stepping into the modern analytics space, many are attempting to figure all of this out by themselves, which doesn’t always work out that great. Even when it comes to using a powerful analytics platform like SAS, it’s always wise to consult the expertise of the best SAS services and partners within your region to avoid any unnecessary and avoidable headaches. Keeping that in mind, here are 4 analytics headaches that the best SAS services alleviate.
Making sure you’re pulling data from all the right sources/organising it in the most optimal way
With many organisations depending on a ton of applications, platforms, and data sources, making sure that all this data is integrated into one centralised view is critical. This is especially true when it comes to split-second decision-making, which requires quick access to high-quality data.
By leveraging a SAS partner known for providing the very best SAS services, from installation to administration to hosting, organisations that do is are positioning themselves for success. For example, as a SAS partner, the SAS experts and consultants in our team follow a strict approach of working closely with our customers, understanding their needs, expectations, and what they want to get out of their analytics. We use this information to devise strategies and, on many occasions, suggest additional ways to optimise their SAS environment.
Is your analytics platform up-to-date? The best SAS services prioritise this
The importance of having an up-to-date SAS environment cannot be overstated. The SAS Institute regularly releases updates, known as hot fixes, that are meant to address known issues within your SAS software environment. From minor tweaks to complex updates, these hot fixes are critical to the sustenance of your entire environment.
At Selerity, we offer our clients a SAS Hot Fix Analysis service that scans their entire system and identifies where updates are required. Our tool informs clients of how they need to go about making sure their SAS environment is running as optimally as possible. For additional assistance on this, one or a team of our SAS consultants is always ready to step in.
Is your current infrastructure too little or too much for your current operation?
This is undeniably a situation that most organisations will face – especially at the beginning of their SAS experience. Determining whether or not their existing analytics infrastructure is sufficient for their requirements will decide how valuable the insights they generate will be. In some instances, certain organisations do too little in terms of the data they’re extracting, whereas in other instances, some organisations are overdoing it entirely and leveraging a large number of insights that have limited value to them.
The best SAS services will naturally step in here and guide organisations down the path of optimal infrastructure utilisation – making sure they’re not just getting the insights they want but the insights they need too.
Do you require custom additions?
In our previous blog, we covered a few of the factors that an organisation would need to refer to when deciding on whether to opt for a custom SAS environment versus a standard one.
From the number of SAS users to the complexity of your requirements to whether or not you require a separation of tiers for purposes of greater security, the best SAS services and experts will be able to advise you on how to best proceed.
With a decade’s worth of experiencing operating as a SAS partner, in addition to countless years of shared SAS experience among our team members, we have enabled several of our clients to enjoy significant savings – sometimes in the range of millions of dollars.
