The true supremacy of the SAS® Enterprise BI Server is the ability to use the
power of SAS® Analytics to deliver real-time information to users who
usually do not understand statistics, but who have the ability to make a
difference if they have easy access to the analyzed data. This paper
describes the process of using SAS® Enterprise Miner™ to develop a model
to score university students based on their risk of attrition and deliver easy
to understand results to university personnel using SAS® Enterprise BI.
