A new version of SAS Visual Analytics is aimed at workgroups and midsized businesses in addition to the enterprise customers originally targeted.

SAS Visual Analytics was introduced nearly a year ago to provide large organisations with the ability to quickly and easily explore massive amounts of data. It was originally designed to run on blade servers and database appliances such as Greenplum and Teradata.

The new version addresses the needs of workgroups and midsized businesses as it has been tailored for departmental-scale servers.

"With powerful data exploration and display abilities, SAS Visual Analytics is more than just a simple business intelligence product," said SAS senior vice president and chief marketing officer Jim Davis.

"Merging BI and analytics in one fast, easy-to-use package, SAS sits at the crossroads of several technologies that customers are anxious to see converge.

"SAS Visual Analytics is highly scalable, ranging from scenarios with a handful of users to a corporate wide, global deployment."

An online demo of SAS Visual Analytics is available.

The software also sports a number of new graphical and analytical features, including dynamic filtering and new visualisations.
