Summary Business intelligence (BI) software provides an interface for multiple audiences to dissect, discover, and decide what the data means. These reporting tools make dynamic information available to all users, giving everyone the ability to manipulate results and further understand the business. There is significant power in reducing the data gatekeeper role in your organization so that each person can quickly interact with data and uncover additional value. SAS offers a BI solution that provides mechanisms to reach every level of the organization. Each tool in this solution provides a different amount of complexity and functionality to aid a broad deployment. Building Business Intelligence Using SAS: Content Development Examples, by Tricia Aanderud and Angela Hall, clarifies how you can fully leverage each SAS BI solution component to ensure a successful implementation. Focusing on the SAS BI Clients, the authors provide a quick-start guide loaded with examples and tips that will help users move quickly from using only one of the SAS BI Clients to using a significant portion of the system. So if you are a SAS BI or SAS Enterprise BI user, but you aren't yet using all the components of the solution, this book is the resource that you need. In addition, the tips and techniques provided in this book will prove invaluable for advanced SAS BI and SAS Enterprise BI users who are studying for SAS Certified BI Content Developer certification
