I use SAS for many projects and its functionality is the best in some areas, not so great in others.

Pros: I use SAS almost exclusively for data generation in quantitative projects - the functionality and ease of data generation can't be beat once proficiency is achieved. SAS is also my go-to software for fitting multilevel (hierarchical) models - it can do almost (not quite) everything I've ever needed, and uses minimal code to do so. I have been using SAS throughout my career and would say it is the program I'm most comfortable working in, even for data management (although the data management functionality is mediocre, see comments below).

Cons: Three things: graphs, data management, and structural equation models. The SAS graphics are so basic, it takes a lot of programming to get them to look even remotely presentable. That's not to say the capability isn't there, it just isn't worth the trouble when there are so many better programs that easily produce beautiful plots. It's a pain to transfer between programs when I've done everything else in SAS to produce the graphics elsewhere. Also, data management in SAS is notoriously underwhelming. I would love to see some increased functionality in data management. Finally, SAS has (in my view) limited capability to fit structural equation models compared to other comparable programs - I'd use Mplus (popular in social sciences) or R to fit and interpret SEMs over SAS any day.

SAS Enterprise Miner is awesome, the best in class for what it does, but comes with a high cost

Pros: I find SAS Enterprise Miner to be the most advanced data mining software on the market. The software offers all sorts of data mining tasks, including random forest, neural networks, support vectors, ensemble modeling, and a host of other options. The drag and drop user interface is quite nice, and a long way from where base SAS software programming used to be.

Cons: The biggest downside is the cost. SAS Enterprise Miner is amazing for the ease of use and the forecasts it produces, but it isn't free. Of the data mining software on the market, it is one of the most expensive. Also, although the software is perfect for building a model, it requires some work to create a model with incoming, real-time data.

Overall: The software is amazing that it can produce such advanced models with a very simple user interface. The benefits I saw was more accurate forecasts in a quarter of the time to set up models.

Pros: Works flawlessly if you know exactly what you're doing and how to use the software.

Cons: Really difficult to use, difficult to navigate, and GUI needs to be updated as well as the product documentation. I wish there were better tutorials online for the Enterprise Miner.

Overall: Helping students learn data analytics and predictive analytics

Amazing analytical tool for those who are not proficient coders and business users.

Pros: it is extremely user friendly with its drag and drop functionality and very flexible to use. It allows you to easily change settings and see how it effects the model and output very quickly.

Cons: It is very very expensive and difficult to obtain, especially for a student. Probably so even for a small company.

Overall: Was able to use SAS without having any knowledge of coding on SAS.

A great start in data mining

Comments: I used SAS enterprise miner as soon as it was launch in the market. At that time I was also using clementine from SPSS too, but the graphical analysis were much cleaner with SAS. I have not used it for many years since, though.

Fantastic Analytics Tool!

Pros: The built in business logic that SAS Enterprise Miner has built in allows us to spend our time analyzing our data instead of simply interpreting its minutia. We can leverage our Analysts who have been using Base SAS for many years and they are up and running in Enterprise Miner very quickly.

Cons: Sometimes the interface can get clunky. It's not always clear where one should go when something goes wrong. Making changes to processes that others have made, and didn't document properly, can be a real cause of consternation.

Overall: Can leverage existing SAS skills.
