SAS Assessments, Migrations and Upgrades

Making the most sense of SAS.

Are you getting the most value for your SAS investment? Does your IT organization have the qualified SAS resources to assist you with a platform migration or if you want to upgrade to the newest version of SAS? Are you confident in your company’s architecture for your SAS solution?

Applying resources skilled in installation, configuration and migration of SAS products, we can partner with you to develop a road map for your project, and help you benefit from a third-party review of your SAS environment and processes.

How we do it


SAS Assessments

Most companies today aren’t maximizing the horsepower that’s available from their SAS product suite. Often there are inefficiencies in data management, in application development and processing, and in how SAS products are used. These inefficiencies result in lost time, lost productivity, increased costs and lost profitability.

Experis’ SAS Assessment is a customized, short-term evaluation of SAS tools and products usage within your department or organization. The objective is to increase the value of SAS solutions and tools to your company, and determine how to realize a greater return on investment in your licensed SAS assets.

During the assessment, Experis will:

  • Perform an analysis of data flows and determine if there are inefficiencies in how data is managed
  • Evaluate extraction, transaction and load activities in the search for potential optimization opportunities
  • Evaluate non-SAS data sets and applications for potential migration to SAS products
  • Evaluate reporting from SAS applications to determine if the latest technology and functionality is being used
  • Evaluate the SAS development environment to determine potential improvements in maintainability, reliability and program accuracy
  • Evaluate analytical and modeling techniques
Migrations and Upgrades

Implementing a new solution, upgrading to a new SAS version and migrating to a new environment all require detailed planning. Your plan must include how the change will affect your environment, impact your current applications, and how your new solution should be configured to achieve maximum performance.

Experis’ team of professionals guides you through the installation, upgrade, migration or conversion process. We also implement those recommendations based on industry best practices.

Although each installation, upgrade, migration or conversion project has its own individual characteristics, Experis follows a process to ensure a repeatable and successful experience. It includes:

  • Requirements gathering of current and desired environment
  • Define necessary testing and/or validation
  • Collaborate with you to create project plan
  • Perform the installation, upgrade, migration or conversion
  • Perform testing and/or validation
  • Provide Knowledge Transfer for administrators and end users
  • Suggest training path if applicable
  • Provide follow-up support
