Descon, SAS Forge Alliance to Unlock the Power of Data Analytics

SAS is empowering organizations across industries to make transparent and explainable decisions, thereby building trust and driving long-term success.

Descon Engineering, a multinational powerhouse in engineering solutions, has forged a strategic alliance with SAS, a global leader in analytics, to revolutionize its data analytics and business decision-making processes. The partnership marks a significant step forward for Descon in its quest for data-driven precision and innovation.

In an announcement made on May 6, 2024, SAS unveiled its collaboration with Descon Engineering Limited, a company renowned worldwide for its excellence in delivering projects across industries such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, and power. The partnership comes as Descon seeks to elevate its data analytics capabilities to ensure informed decision-making and drive sustainable growth.

Descon’s commitment to quality, safety, and timely project delivery has been widely acknowledged. However, to maintain its stellar reputation and achieve its sustainability goals, the company recognized the need for enhanced data analytics capabilities. Traditional methods reliant on semi-automated spreadsheets were proving inadequate, leading to errors and delays in reporting crucial information.

Tahir Mehmood, Head of Digitalization at Descon, highlighted the challenges faced by the company: “Manual efforts and inherent errors in our previous processes hindered our ability to derive actionable insights from our data. The implementation of SAS Governance and Compliance Manager (GCM) has been transformative, providing us with a tailored solution that aligns perfectly with our business requirements.”

The SAS GCM solution has empowered Descon to streamline its data management processes, enabling senior executives to make informed decisions based on accurate and timely information. By automating data consolidation and analysis, Descon can now identify areas for improvement swiftly and effectively. The platform’s flexibility allows Descon to adapt and refine its analytics solution in response to evolving business needs.

Salem AbouFakhr, Senior Customer Success Manager at SAS Middle East, emphasized the significance of analytics-driven decision-making in today’s business landscape: “In an era where digital transformation and regulatory compliance are paramount, organizations must leverage analytics to gain a competitive edge. SAS is committed to delivering best-in-class solutions tailored to meet the unique needs of organizations like Descon.”

The successful outcome of the partnership between SAS and Descon is a testament to the collaborative efforts of both teams, supported by local SAS partner TRA. By harnessing the power of analytics, Descon is poised to unlock new opportunities for growth and innovation across its diverse portfolio of projects.

From banking to manufacturing, SAS is empowering organizations across industries to make transparent and explainable decisions, thereby building trust and driving long-term success. With its cutting-edge analytics solutions, SAS is paving the way for a data-driven future where informed decision-making is the cornerstone of success.
