SAS, the Global Leader in Analytics software recently announced Andrew Tan as its new Managing Director for SAS Malaysia.

Andrew Tan’s appointment will see the strong continuation of the SAS brand as the leading ‘Business Intelligence’ and ‘Business Analytics’ solution provider in Malaysia since 1986.

“Andrew’s strong track record in business development and extensive international consulting experience in Asia Pacific and Europe is a great asset to SAS,” said Gordon Clubb, Regional Director, South East Asia. “SAS Malaysia saw an overall revenue increase of 16% in 2010, which is an encouraging start for 2011. Andrew will be integral in helping us continue this momentum.”

Andrew has over 25 years of experience in management and IT consulting and he has served in leadership roles with Accenture, Unisys, IBM, Arthur Andersen, Bearing Point and Deloitte Consulting. “SAS is a leader in the solutions that help companies in every industry transform their data into predictive insights about their performance, risk management, customers and more. My goal is to lead SAS as a trusted business advisor in helping companies solve complex business problems, achieve key business objectives and more effectively manage their information assets”.

On a global basis, 2010 saw SAS achieving record revenue of USD2.43 billion, up 5.2 percent over its 2009 results. Revenue from business analytics jumped 26 percent as organizations sought to grow business by better understanding and managing their customers and more effectively managing operations, expenses and risk.

The company was also voted by the prestigious Fortune Magazine as the “No.1 Best Place” to work in America for two consecutive years since 2009. As is customary, SAS reinvested substantial revenue, 24 percent, back into research and development. SAS also grew staff by 2.4 percent.

In 2010, organizations around the world sought analytics to make relevant, timely business decisions. Analytics accounted for double-digit growth in nearly all industry solutions, including education, energy and utilities, financial services, government, healthcare and life sciences. Revenue from customer intelligence and risk and fraud management solutions saw growth rates in double – and in some cases triple digits – across most industries.

Other notable double-digit growth rates worldwide were in business intelligence, customer intelligence, data management, financial performance and strategy management, life sciences, merchandising, risk and fraud management, and supply chain solutions.
