SAS Business Intelligence


DAS designed and implemented a web-based data-driven application that measured the billion dollar acquisitions and department level performance of a major government agency within DHS. The results are used daily by the senior management and officers through a “drill-down”, multi-page, color-coded Internet interface. The process updates over 200 metrics automatically as new data becomes available. Exception reports are automatically generated and the system notifies the user of unusual activity by email. Advanced coding techniques were used to work around issues with the new technology. DAS used Strategic Performance Management (SPM), SAS® Business Intelligence Suite, Information Delivery Portal, Web Report Studio, OLAP Cube Studio, Information Map Studio and SAS Management Console on SAS V9.13 Platform.

The project was awarded the prestigious SAS® Enterprise Intelligence Award in March 2006.
