SAS is again ranked as the leader in operational risk management by Chartis Research, in its Operational Risk Management Systems 2008 report.

Since 2005, Chartis has positioned SAS OpRisk Management in the top spot for “completeness of offering” and “market share potential.” SAS leads “a handful of software vendors [who] have established themselves as clear leaders and form the ‘premier league'."
Chartis forecasts the worldwide operational risk management (ORM) market to grow to US$1.55 billion by 2011.  The Chartis report is the most comprehensive independent study of the specialised ORM marketplace, looking at both the demand and supply sides of the market. It covers the main market and regulatory requirements as well the competitive landscape. The evaluation examined a vendor’s core functionality, data management capability, vendor characteristics, implementation process, user friendliness, complexity, customisability/flexibility and costs.
