<p>SAS Australia and New Zealand has announced the introduction of the SAS ANZ Certification program to formally recognise SAS skills primacy in key areas of business analytics.</p>
<p>SAS – which is the leader in business analytics software and services, and the largest independent vendor in the business intelligence market – has been in Australia &amp; New Zealand since shortly after the company’s founding in 1976. SAS ANZ customers include leading financial institutions, utilities, telecommunication carriers, government departments, universities and retailers.</p>
<p>Certification is awarded to individual software professionals and does not extend to the organisations they represent or to their affiliates. Individuals will typically be employees of SAS alliance partners (http://www.sas.com/offices/asiapacific/sp/partners/index.html), experienced contractors and SAS personnel.</p>
<p>If they so wish, SAS ANZ Certification conferees will be identified on the company’s external website – with the obvious benefit of their elite standing being noted in the public domain – and have their further related accomplishments added to the record.</p>
<p>Certification will be conferred in five SAS disciplines, namely –</p>
<p>• SAS Business Intelligence – http://www.sas.com/technologies/bi/index.html
• SAS Data Integration – http://www.sas.com/technologies/dw/index.html
• SAS Platform Administration – http://www.sas.com/technologies/bi/administration.html
• SAS Enterprise Miner – http://www.sas.com/technologies/analytics/datamining/miner/
• SAS Version 9.2 Migration – http://www.sas.com/software/sas9/</p>
<p>Individuals are eligible to be certified in any or all five disciplines with the prerequisite that they demonstrate a thorough knowledge of SAS 9.2 – the company’s current core analytics platform.</p>
<p>Each certification examination will comprise both theoretical and practical components to establish applicants’ in-depth understanding of SAS technology and their ability to apply that understanding to diagnosis and solution design for problem solving.</p>
<p>SAS ANZ Certification examinations will be conducted under strict conditions on SAS ANZ premises and the first of these – for SAS 9.2 Migration – will be next month.</p>
