SAS, an SAP Software Partner, has completed SAP certification for decision support and technology integration. The certification of the SAS System Release 8.2 validates the ability to integrate with mySAP technology, specifically for the interface of R/3 Release 4.6. The certification strengthens the relationship between the two companies that began when SAS joined SAP AG's Software Partner Program in 2001.

SAS Enterprise Guide Release 1.2, a drag-and-drop Windows interface, had previously been certified by SAP in 2001, complementing its Business Information Warehouse portal. SAS integrates and analyzes business data from heterogeneous applications and other data sources to provide a holistic view of the enterprise, allowing organizations to achieve sustainable competitive advantage through better business decision making. The SAS System provides tools essential for mastering the four data-driven tasks common to any application: data access, management, analysis and presentation–all within a powerful applications development environment.

The SAS System forms the foundation for applications that can gather corporate data from many sources and across multiple channels and transform that data into coherent information. Decision makers apply that information into knowledge to define and execute enterprise strategy. From award-winning data integration tools to business reporting interfaces to unparalleled analytics capabilities, SAS delivers reliable and innovative technology that turns data into enriched, cleansed and trustworthy information.
