Management: SAS focuses on how to find success along the Enterprise Intelligence journey.
Recent Gauteng Business News
A recent business breakfast hosted by SAS Institute highlighted the fact that while enterprise intelligence (EI) is a long and in-depth journey, it is also a necessary step in business management for Gauteng.
“The truth is that most CIO’s admit they feel that the flow of information is not managed optimally across their enterprise. EI provides exactly this flow of information that tracks and reports on every aspect of business and facilitates increased value from investments through better management,” says Leonard Browne, principal consultant for SAS Institute.
The SAS Enterprise Intelligence Platform (EIP) combines data integration, intelligence storage, business intelligence and analytics to add value to organisational data and enables better decision making.
Emphasising that EI is about reducing costs, maximising benefits and reducing complexity in a business, the event highlighted the benefits of a powerful EI platform.
The event played host to EI expert speakers such as; Nigel Holloway, information architect at Old Mutual, Bruce Jones, director of Blue Platinum, Paul Nel, director of Risk Advisory Services and Goran Dragosavac, national analytical intelligence specialist at SAS Institute.
“With three out of four of South Africa’s leading banks using SAS, the statistics speak for themselves. It makes sense that when you embark on an EI platform journey you want the most powerful and advanced technology on your side to provide a flexible environment that evolves as your business does,” says Browne.
The business breakfast was the first in a series of enterprise intelligence events that SAS is hosting in Gauteng and Cape Town. The second event in the SAS EIP series will take place 22 October in Johannesburg.
