This guide brings together all the business analytics knowledge and SAS techniques you need to gain valuable intelligence for competitive advantage in decision making.

Starting with the basics, the authors offer an up-to-date view of what business analytics is, why it is so valuable, and, most importantly, how it is used. They combine essential conceptual content with clear, step-by-step explanations of how to perform each important statistical task with SAS.

Using SAS-based examples, they identify common challenges that can be addressed by business analytics, illustrate each type of analytics (descriptive, prescriptive, and predictive), and offer indispensable practical guidance for undertaking your own projects.

Business analytics can help you sort through massive amounts of data, identify meaningful patterns, transform patterns into insights, and use those insights to make more profitable decisions. The authors start with a complete conceptual introduction, explaining how business analytics can drive competitive advantage and how to align your organization to make the most of it. You’ll find realistic coverage of key managerial and technical issues, from organizational structure to data quality.

Next, you’ll master practical methodologies, strategies, and best practices for performing each leading form of analytics with SAS: descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive. Throughout, you’ll learn from realistic case studies and solved problems and get hands-on experience with powerful SAS software tools. A capstone SAS-based project integrates key processes and techniques, preparing you to succeed on your own.
