SAS Social Media Analytics takes social media marketing to the enterprise

Industry News

Global corporations are seeking ways to convert social media data into better customer relationships, stronger customer service, enhanced marketing efforts and improved bottom-line results. They are struggling to derive practical insight from a flood of online conversation data and apply it to real-world decisions. Corporate marketers and agencies want more than the current one-size-fits-all offerings. They want to integrate social data across all areas of their businesses, answer key questions, and apply the answers to specific business decisions. SAS (www.sas.com), a leader in business analytics, understands what social marketers require from online conversation data and is offering new software to make the business benefits of embracing social media a reality.

SAS Social Media Analytics is the first enterprise solution designed to meet the needs of marketers in medium and large companies. It helps them understand, predict and act based on social media data. With the ability to archive and analyze more than two years of social media conversations from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, discussion forums, blogs and more, SAS’ new on-demand software shows marketers how people feel about their products or brands, who is influencing them, and how social media conversations affect business results. They can immediately apply answers to brand strategies, media placement, public relations and customer care activities.
