Just wondering if anyone out there in an analyst or data related role has had any experience with the SAS line of software solutions?

I usually just mine data directly from SQL Server without any fancy GUI interfaces, and I'm assuming that's what SAS primarily is. Although, I do see that they have data modelling technology such as decision trees and neural nets, which I'm not very experienced in, I dunno if I'd need to know that. But some basic understanding would be cool, or a screen shot or two of the generic interface. I've used Brio before, which I'm thinking is similar to SAS, just a competitor...it basically took over query generation and was a direct means of querying from a data warehouse.

Not sure if anyone here uses this stuff, but if you have any experience with it I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
