Analytics vendor claims that its cloud-native SAS Viya platform will help customers more efficiently democratize analytics throughout their organizations while seamlessly managing analytic workloads and building SAS into a variety of applications.
Ritu Jyoti, program vice president of Artificial Intelligence Research at IDC said. “This iteration of the SAS Viya platform gives users at all levels of an organization an agile, powerful advanced machine learning engine to help master the complex data that’s in cloud environments.”
SAS Viya provides the missing layer between models developed in multiple languages and the systems where they’re deployed, eliminating the need for time-consuming recoding to deploy models.
Deep integration – what it means
SAS says the Viya platform will deep integration with Microsoft Azure services empowering customers to stand up SAS analytics in their cloud environments with ease, run them reliably, easily give users access to the latest innovations and enhancements and centrally manage everything with tools they are already familiar with.
This will enable IT to focus less on routine analytics workloads and more on high-value, strategic workloads that help business leaders make better decisions.
