Yes I have their demo. How successful the reporting applications are i.e. wrs,cubes ... how can I find how widely they are used. Any reference will be helpful. Is VA going to take over sas bi tools

One of the best things to do is review the analyst viewpoint reports. They are made by other companies Gartner Forrester as well known ones.

SAS is sharing those on their site:  http://www.sas.com/en_us/news/analyst-viewpoints.html  Yes it is also sales promotion so some caution on what is said is important.

This one is SAS very proud on: http://www.sas.com/content/dam/SAS/en_us/doc/analystreport/forrester-wave-agile-bi-platforms-107215.... Ik like to read the vendor profile chapters.

From Gartner Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics Platforms there is again a nice quadrant, but the strengths/cautions on each vendor is to read.

The difference VA and OLAP Web/BI and AMO (Addin Microsoft Office) / Eguide may not be clear from first sight.

SAS VA is selfservice like OLAP but bypassing the OLAP cube building with DI/BI in datamarts. It is done as cubes internally (in memory). 

I am seeing VA being promoted for this instead of OLAP WEB/BI WRS. VA is rather new (2 year s now) and WEB portal Olap is some 10 years old.

AMO Eguide is more suited for advanced users doing also a lot of data manipulations.
