Compare PlaidCloud vs. SAS

PlaidCloud is a low-code, click-to-configure SaaS platform that provides data source integration, an extensive collection of data analysis tools, and easy to share data and analysis pipelines. PlaidCloud is based in the US and offers pre-constructed templates for profitability and cost management, IT chargeback, intercompany invoicing, and goods transfer pricing. PlaidCloud utilizes clustered Google Compute Engine instances and a massively parallel processing data warehouse. In short, PlaidCloud provides a powerful multidimensional solution for analysis, modeling, calculating, and reporting.
SAS Cost and Profitability Management (CPM )is an activity-based cost modeling application. CPM is client-server-based and features unlimited user-defined dimensionality. Recently, CPM has been upgraded to run on the SAS in-memory calculation engine. This in-memory engine enables CPM to quickly process big data volumes and execute intensive allocation and calculation rules. The full SAS software environment must be run in order to use the in-memory engine. SAS Cost and Profitability Management is typically purchased along with SAS ETL and visual reporting products.
