SAS has enhanced to SAS/OR software. Eliminating guesswork, the solution enables a scientific, logical and guided approach to optimising business practices. It integrates large amounts of data in a way to help provide additional corporate insight. The July 2007 enhancements build upon several March 2007 improvements. Most significant, in the view of SAS, is that the new release delivers mixed integer linear programming (MILP), which adds structure and adaptability. SAS/OR is part of the SAS Enterprise Intelligence platform, which integrates individual technology components into a single, unified system. The result is an information flow that includes data access and cleansing, reporting, descriptive and predictive analytics, and operations research methods.
