SAS’ new SAS Decision Manager integrates predictive analytics, business rules, and data management to help companies improve their decision-making.  With the solution, enterprises can make sense of big data whether applying analytics to strategic decisions or everyday operational ones, such as credit, fraud risk, next-best offers, pricing, and claims approval. By automating parts of decision-making processes, organizations improve the speed and accuracy of decisions and ensure they are consistent and repeatable.

SAS Decision Manager provides a single, visual interface that:

  • Integrates business rules, predictive analytic models, and optimization with business processes
  • Provides a common decision-making environment
  • Centers decision design around a decision flow that supports analysis, simulation, and reporting
  • Leverages existing SAS High-Performance Computing and big data infrastructure

“We built SAS Decision Manager on an analytics platform to help organizations manage all their decisions, whether strategic or operational, in a single framework,” said Madhu Nair, SAS senior manager for information management. “SAS Decision Manager delivers a consistent user experience and management environment that supports systems and workers throughout the organization.”
