SAS® Viya™: Unifying SAS Usage via Hybrid Analytics
“While some 75% would consider using an open source platform for data analytics, 95% believe this poses several challenges for their organisation.”
The Golden Rules of a Hybrid Analytic Strategy, Peter Pugh-Jones, SAS UKI
There are strengths and weaknesses associated with open-source software. Preferences can vary within an organisation and, even within a team, depending on users’ frequent tasks and knowledge. Some organisations are exploring an updated, hybrid approach to analytics, seeking a solution that combines disparate tools to maximise agility across departments. SAS has introduced their answer to hybrid data analytics in the form of SAS® Viya™...
SAS Viya is the open, SAS platform that is set to transform data analytics for organisations across all industries. Hosting your data analytics in a single, cloud-based or on-site SAS environment, SAS Viya has the functionality to meet the needs of any SAS team. There is a lot more to SAS Viya than hybrid analytics. The latest analytical capabilities to the DATA step, all make use of CAS services to run in-memory for significantly reduced time of execution. And of course your existing SAS programs, from as far back as SAS 6, will run just the same in SAS Viya – removing any migration headaches when you adopt SAS Viya.
