Subject: SAS® Model Manager to speed value of predictive analytics

New software streamlines creating, managing and deploying analytical models

M2006, LAS VEGAS (Oct. 23, 2006) - SAS, the leader in business intelligence, will ship new predictive analytics software, SAS Model Manager, this November. Organizations rely on analytical models for strategic and tactical decision-making, such as estimating risk exposure, analyzing business strategies and determining optimal customer treatment in a competitive environment. As models play an increasingly important role in business processes, it is critical that management reduce the likelihood of erroneous model output or incorrect interpretation of model results. This new SAS offering will help deploy analytic results to decision makers worldwide.

As more analytical models are implemented into operational systems, model decay becomes a challenge. Retaining poorly performing models in production status is bad for business. The SAS enterprise model management framework supports best practices for organizing and tracking the tasks of model development; model verification and testing; comparative model performance benchmarking, publishing and sharing model performance data and metrics over established reporting channels; until the retirement of the model when eventually it is pulled from production status. SAS calls this "lifecycle analytics."


SAS Model Manager is integrated with award-winning SAS Enterprise Miner™, a rich suite of data mining tools that empowers users to explore and exploit corporate data for strategic business advantage. SAS Enterprise Model Management is part of the SAS Enterprise Intelligence Platform which optimally integrates individual technology components within an existing IT infrastructure into a single, unified system. The result is an information flow that transcends organizational silos, diverse computing platforms and niche tools - and delivers new insights that drive value for your organization.
