Auditing in SAS® Visual Analytics
Many organizations are using SAS® Visual Analytics for their daily reporting. But as more users gain access to the visual tool, it is easy to lose track of what data is being used, what reports are being accessed, and what elements of the system are classified as critical. With SAS® Visual Analytics comes a governance exercise that all organizations should provision for, as otherwise it jeopardizes its maintenance and performance.
This paper explores the three different auditing areas that can be configured with SAS Visual Analytics and the different metrics that are associated with them. It presents how to configure the auditing, the data sources that are being populated on the background, and how to exploit them to expand your reports beyond the pre-created audit reports.
Consideration is also given to the IT and infrastructure side of enabling auditing mechanisms, with data volumes and archiving practices being at the heart of the discussion.
