What do you like best?

I was educationally trained in SAS. For me the best features of this software are the simple coding language, SAS support, and variation of data analysis procedures that can be done on the software. Primarily, I use the software to analyze public health data. The software has great functionality when you need to look at descriptive statistics, regressions, and even time-series analysis. The good thing about SAS is that even though it is a challenging learn, it is repetitive in nature. And the Log output gives you feedback when you make an error, which is better compared to using STATA. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

A lot can be done with SAS, but it does require some training. SAS is not something you can easily pick up. It requires some background knowledge on what each procedure does (ex: reg, glm, freq, means, genmod). It also requires you to know what steps can go into each procedure. However, SAS Support is a great aid which helps explain all that you need to know to use the software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is pricey, but it will meet all your advanced data analysis needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SAS is a software that can analyze large and complex data-sets, which is important in public health. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The data output is more clear than with other analysis softwares. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The interface is extremely difficult, and the programming language is not at all intuitive. The guide materials are horrendous. Guides written in plain language for lay users would be extremely helpful, but your guides are incomprehensible and patronizing. The fact that this software is not mac compatible is ridiculous, and the biggest reason I used a competitor's product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I do data analysis frequently for my clients but chose to use a superior data software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Data management capabilities. SAS bridge with ArcGIS (although this could be and will be updated to deal with big data) it's a step in the right direction. Macro capabilities Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

No command window. It would be nice to have a command window similar to R or STATA where you can test code without have to write it in the SAS system program file. Also, R's ability to download various packages is very nice and I think SAS would benefit from this. Length of code to run a simple regression. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Understand what your plan before you buy the product. If you do a bunch of data management, then consider SAS. If not, maybe consider a different software Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This program allows you to do sophisticated data analysis and is flexible in terms of allowing you to manipulate data effectively. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

This program is incredibly difficult to use, and the user support is even worse. I'd love a plain English guide. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I need to do data analysis. I also work with students and junior employees and would love a program that they could pick up easily. Frankly, SAS is discouraging and inaccessible. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is very easy to learn and adaptable in nature, it has a strong data capability feature, and with each update there is an update of the strength of the product over all. It can be used in various scenarios and not limited to just some data sets. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is a very expensive software that lacks in the customization capabilities that would help make the final product a lot clearer and more interactive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If it is a start-up there are way more easier programs that are flexible in nature than SAS and what they can provide. SAS i sbest to learn first since it is the universal language in data analytics and provides a vast background needed to understand other programs further downstream. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Through using SAS i have been able to examine the strength of drug product versus cost within the business and being able to analyze and graph the information in order to assess what would be best to move into the market next. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

SAS is a great tool for doing high-level, more complex analyses like Statistical Equation Modeling, Cluster Analysis, etc., but isn't the best solution if you need to do something relatively simple like running a cross-tab analysis, simple t test, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's not the most user friendly platform, that's for sure. It used to be entirely syntax based, although recently they've added the ability to do click menus, which is really nice. I don't use it all THAT often, since SPSS has really stepped up their game recently and is able to handle the majority of my needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a solid tool for more advanced analytics and complex things, but if you need something simpler, just go with SPSS. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SAS is great for when I have a complex analysis that I need to run myself and I'm pressed for time. Usually I would outsource this to another analyst, but if I need to do something quick and dirty, SAS is a great tool for that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the ability to conduct various types of analyses in sas useful towards research in health care policy. While steps are not as intuitive as I am familiar with (using STATA), they did come with ease quicker. This may be because I am familiar with another programming language. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What do you like best?

SAS is comparable to other softwares for data analysis. I use it for educational research that required multiple regression and descriptive statistics. SAS has any statistical procedure I needed to run in a university setting. SAS Social Media Analytics seems like a very neat tool that I would like to use in the future. I prefer this software when I have to analysis large sets of data. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

SAS is not as user friendly and I had to seek assistance on multiple occasions. I had received training on statistical procedures but do not consider myself a statistician, therefore, it was important for me to find something that was easy to use. For example, you have to know programing code and remember it for analysis. Although, I did not pay for my use of it when I considered purchasing my own; I found that it was more expensive than other available softwares. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are knowledgable about statistics, then this program will be easier to use than if you are a novice. It has a wide range of capabilities including basic and advanced statistical analysis for a university setting. It is more costly than other software programs but is great for large datasets. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Educational research was the one use I had for SAS; specifically multiple regression and descriptive statistics. It was provided free of charge which was a strong benefit and met my immediate needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
