SAS 9 combines proven tools that enable users to access nearly any data source, analyze it and transform it into meaningful and valuable visualizations that help decision makers gain a quick understanding of critical issues. SAS 9 is the core analytic and data management engine behind many SAS offerings and solutions that are focused on:
Diversity - Standardized data governance and management. An extensive range of deep analytics. Solutions that modernize and integrate with existing operations, deploy as containers, run in a grid, and drive value from analytics results. It's more of what you need – and more of what you expect from SAS.
Scale - Get up and running faster than ever. Reduce the time required to install, manage and maintain SAS deployments. SAS 9.4 takes advantage of distributed computing and storage technologies, cloud data sources, and open standards.
Trust - Reduce potential vulnerabilities, and better meet internal security requirements. The latest release of SAS 9.4 better protects your SAS assets with Transport Layer Security (TLS) hardening and enhanced encryption for SAS data and passwords.
Remove barriers related to technology and skill limitations, and empower everyone to gain analytic insights from all relevant data. Arm developers with new ways to apply SAS Analytics directly to the data – no matter where it resides.
SAS 9.4 is available via software-as-a-service from SAS via the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. Your organization can get the value of SAS software in a managed environment, fully operated by SAS on the SAS Cloud. The SAS Cloud runs entirely on Microsoft Azure, providing you with the safety and security found on Azure.
