My two cents about EG and EM
The comment towards EG integrated with EM in one place is one stop in a long imagination: what happens after the two get married? Soon some may say why don't we just move Forecasting Sever or Marketing Optimization. I am not saying we should NOT think that way. Just perhaps a bit understanding why the two are separate may be more helpful?

Em 4.2 / 5.2 that is old history as being SAS 8 or the first 9 release. With SAS 9.1.3 EM 5.3 and eguide 4.1 was the combined numbers.
With SAS 9.4 it should EM 12.3 and EGuide 6.
See: SAS Enterprise Miner (product description). and Model Development and Deployment, Data Mining Software, SAS® Enterprise Miner™ | SAS (see the requiments/bundling) and System Requirements--SAS® Enterprise Miner(TM) 12.3
You wil lsee the license of EM is including Eguide and AMO. The goal is that they cooperate.
More advanced: Text mining is requiring data mining (EM).
High performance procs are optional. (VA not required).
Model manager is adding a level to it by managing the PMML-type models build with Eminer.
See: Data Mining Group - Welcome to DMG for this dedicated area.
This is the SAS forum part of EM: https://communities.sas.com/community/support-communities/sas_data_mining_and_text_mining/
The difference between Eguide Eminer Amo is target group and the way users are expected to do their work.
Eminer is the ultimate tool for building the (PMML-style) models following Semma/Crisp.
Eguide is the best tool for a developer/programer and analyst. Many times positioned as the switch army knife.
Amo is the best for the casual SAS user mostly close to be an information consumer. Also available for SMB in a dedicated license

In recent years there has been even more integration: Rapid Predictive Modeler within EG and AMO, and with EG and AMO 6.1 there is now the Recency, Frequency, Monetary task (RFM), which is an entry-level customer segmentation model. The RFM task does not require a license for SAS Enterprise Miner, so it's a great way to explore some possibilities without an additional investment.
