"SAS is honored and committed to support the mission of HHS and help predict the future for better government," said Tom Mazich, vice president of SAS U.S. Government Operations. "Imagine being able to pull data from any system in your organization, perform advanced analyses, and then obtain and share performance information for decision making in seconds rather than hours, days or weeks. As the partnership between SAS and HHS demonstrates, these capabilities are no longer just part of our imagination; they have arrived in full force. HHS is leading the way in showing how the strategic application of technology can help create a healthier and safer nation and positively touch the lives of countless Americans each day."
The renewed agreement gives HHS wide access to a variety of SAS business intelligence and analytics solutions, including SAS BI Server and SAS Strategic Performance Management. SAS' business intelligence solutions will empower HHS executives and employees to collaborate across the department and within programs. With access to the information they need through self-service reporting and customized, easy-to-use Web interfaces, HHS employees can make mission-critical decisions more efficiently and with greater confidence. For instance, HHS and its programs can use SAS for performance management initiatives, such as monitoring key performance indicators and delivering measurable results to support accountability efforts through the President's Management Agenda, while ensuring achievement of a wide range of organizational goals. In addition, HHS employees will be able to take the information and turn it into forward-looking insight by applying a wide range of SAS analytics solutions for statistical data analysis, data mining, forecasting and other capabilities. Using SAS data mining technology, employees can uncover previously unknown patterns hidden in vast quantities of data, predict future trends and conduct studies, such as the evaluation of anthrax vaccine safety.
Overall, the renewed contract follows a previous five-year enterprise license agreement. It includes services and training designed to help HHS implement SAS software to meet its goals.
