The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated SAS Software specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the SAS Software Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 930 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which SAS Software improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 930 standard requirements:

  1. Will the big data cloud environment support scale-out, shared-nothing massively parallel processing, storage optimization, dynamic query optimization, and mixed workload management better than alternative deployment models (e.g., on-premises appliances, software on commodity hardware)?

  2. Self-service analysis is meaningless unless users can trust that the data comes from an approved source and is up to date. Does your BI solution create a strong partnership with IT to ensure that data, whether from extracts or live connections, is 100-percent accurate?

  3. Will it allow users to retrieve their data and their application artifacts and to have strong assurance that the cloud service provider will delete all copies and not retain any materials belonging to the cloud service customer after an agreed period?

  4. What are the potential areas of conflict that can arise between organisations IT and marketing functions around the deployment and use of business intelligence and data analytics software services and whats the best way to resolve them?

  5. How likely is it that a particular approach will reduce the cost of deploying and managing Big Data analytics and maximize the productivity and efficiency of IT operations over the deployments expected useful life?

  6. Consideration for forming a BICC is driven by a need and urgency for change, specifically around the ability to meet business demand for better decisions using BI technology. Who is feeling the pain?

  7. In what manner and under which conditions is it feasible to apply effective control measures to Big Data implementations and gain increased certainty over the validity of data analytics outcomes?

  8. Do you have mature business intelligence environments that can integrate fraud analytics within your current environment to take advantage of processes and architecture that are already in place?

  9. Data visualization effectiveness; What are the Bi platform advanced capabilities in terms of allowing business users to efficiently and effectively visualize data sets and act on the results?

  10. How do you protect the assured, proper, and consistent collection, processing, communication, use and disposition of personally identifiable information in the relation to cloud services?

  4. Stakeholder Analysis Matrix: How will the stakeholder directly benefit from the SAS Software project and how will this affect the stakeholders motivation?

  5. Responsibility Assignment Matrix: Are your organizations and items of cost assigned to each pool identified?

  6. Requirements Traceability Matrix: Describe the process for approving requirements so they can be added to the traceability matrix and SAS Software project work can be performed. Will the SAS Software project requirements become approved in writing?

  7. Activity Duration Estimates: What are two suggestions for ensuring adequate change control on SAS Software projects that involve outside contracts?

  8. Executing Process Group: What will you do to minimize the impact should a risk event occur?

  9. Procurement Management Plan: Is there a formal set of procedures supporting Stakeholder Management?

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any SAS Software project with this in-depth SAS Software Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose SAS Software projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in SAS Software and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make SAS Software investments work better.

This SAS Software All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
