What are the licensing costs of SAS Viya, SAS Visual Analytics and SAS Enterprise Guide?

It is difficult to determine exactly what a license of SAS Viya, SAS Visual Analytics and SAS Enterprise Guide costs because it depends on the country, the number of users (or the number of CPUs in the case of server software), the connectors to data sources, and at what point in the year you request a quote. And before the end of a fiscal quarter of SAS, you may be able to look forward to a decent discount. In addition, nowadays it is recommended running the software in the cloud, for the most part, you only pay for your consumption then. The purchase cost of SAS Viya, SAS Visual Analytics and SAS Enterprise Guide may not be the single largest expense, but maintenance and support do return each year.

What makes SAS BI & Analytics unique?

In our study, we see that SAS in the field of BI & Analytics software has a few specific features which are worth weighing in a tool selection. This makes SAS Business Analytics more or less unique: canonical discriminant analysis, principal factor analysis, big data quality, clinical research analytics and enterprise data hub.

The advantages and disadvantages of SAS Business Analytics

In the following sections, we describe all the advantages and disadvantages of SAS BI & Analytics, SAS Viya, SAS Visual Analytics and SAS Enterprise Guide, et cetera. These are not necessarily definitive because: SAS can currently work with partners to building on features that meet specific customer needs at this time (such as support for Google Sheets, Blob storage, Azure Active Directory, Microsoft Dynamics, OData, two-factor authentication, DynamoDB, Google Adwords, column charts and Debian). Or a certain feature is not (yet) (well) documented.
