SAS has been ranked top in Data Quality, according to the recent report: Information Difference Data Quality Landscape Q1 2013. According to the report, SAS Data Quality cleanses, validates and enriches data to deliver a more accurate view of customers and organisations.
"Data quality is a persistent problem in any large organisation," states the report. "At any point where human beings are asked to type data into a computer system, errors will occur, no matter how carefully the system is designed." The analysts cited their recent survey which found that 30 percent of master data management budgets go to ensuring data quality.
The Information Difference selected leaders by combining analyst research and customer feedback. "SAS® Data Quality technology is a market leader, a pioneer in the use of visual techniques to demystify data quality and make it accessible to the business user. This is reflected in the consistently excellent feedback given by its reference customers," said author Andy Hayler. With data quality built into projects, users can transform and combine disparate data, remove inaccuracies, standardise on common values and cleanse data to create a trustworthy and valuable asset that improves decision making.
Commenting on this accomplishment, Sudipta K. Sen, Regional Director - South East Asia, CEO & Managing Director - SAS Institute (India) said, "Data Quality is the foundation for insights and fact-based decision making. We are proud to be recognised as a leader in Data Quality solutions. SAS Data Quality solution empowers users to deliver an accurate view of organisation, customers and business environment."
