Analytics users anticipate more intuitive, highly visual SAS® predictive analytics

SAS is putting the finishing touches on its new, highly interactive, drag-and-drop environment for quickly building predictive models and presenting results through data visualization. Running on the revolutionary in-memory SAS architecture, the new software loads data once and retains it for repetitive analysis.

SAS® Visual Statistics, available in July, lets statisticians and data scientists employ the graphical interface popularized by SAS Visual Analytics to quickly analyze complex data of any size. Bolstering SAS Visual Statistics with SAS Visual Analytics helps users quickly discover relationships between variables to determine which will affect outcomes.

Multiple users can build and modify predictive models on large volumes of diverse data, using analytical methods including regression and estimation, classification and clustering.

“SAS’ innovative analytics will provide enterprises with faster, more accurate insights,” said Wayne Thompson, SAS Chief Data Scientist. “Applying advanced analytics methods to big data will help our customers increase their competitiveness.”

SAS Visual Statistics lays a foundation and path for customers to use more advanced analytics, such as model development, assessment and scoring. “Data scientists can quickly identify the predictive drivers among explanatory variables, and interactively discover outliers and data discrepancies with the click of a mouse,” said Thompson.

The speed of in-memory analytics also enhances productivity. Multiple users can instantly see the impact of changing model settings, such as adding new variables or removing outliers. They can easily and concurrently create models by specific variables, groups or segments to predict multiple outcomes.

SAS Visual Statistics is not just for big data. It is equally valuable for users in departmental deployments or midsize businesses. To meet varying customer needs, SAS Visual Statistics operates on several platforms, including database appliances from Pivotal and Teradata, Hadoop distributions from Cloudera and Hortonworks, or departmental servers.

Today's announcement was made at SAS Global Forum, the world's largest gathering of SAS users, attended by more than 4,500 business and IT users of SAS software and solutions. Select sessions and keynotes from the user conference will be live streamed.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when. The cloud environment has proved to be a major force in transitioning to an agile business model that enables quick decisions and fast implementation that solidify customer relationships.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
