SAS® Visual Data Discovery

Interactive data visualization for analytics

SAS Visual Data Discovery provides a point-and-click interface to the advanced analytic capabilities of SAS. It enhances advanced analytics and exploratory data analysis with interactive data visualization, leading to better analyses, faster decisions and more effective presentations of analytic results. SAS Visual Data Discovery combines top-selling SAS products (Base SASSAS/STAT® and SAS/GRAPH®), along with two interfaces (SAS® Enterprise Guide® for guided tasks and batch analysis and JMP® software for discovery and exploratory analysis).

Benefits

How SAS® Is Different

  • SAS Visual Data Discovery overcomes the inherent limitations in spreadsheets, static graphs, charts and tabular reports, providing a nonprogramming environment for exploratory data analysis.
  • It enhances advanced analytics and exploratory data analysis with interactive data visualization, leading to better analysis, better decisions and more effective presentation of analytic results.
  • Unmatched advanced analytics and interactive data visualization deliver the ability to explore ideas, investigate patterns, discover previously hidden facts and reveal opportunities through visual queries.

Benefits

  • Allows users to interact with graphs to clarify results and take action. SAS Visual Data Discovery provides exploratory data analysis and interactive data visualization in an extendable point-and-click environment, dynamically linking statistics with graphics.
  • Exports interactive animations to insert into presentations, Web pages and other documents. Show your colleagues what you've discovered and let them interact with the visualizations – and see for themselves.
  • Provides a powerful and comprehensive analytical environment without having to code. Users can point-and-click their way through the interface and customize analyses with their own SAS programs. There are two interface options to choose from. SAS® Enterprise Guide® lets users build queries, manipulate and update data, perform simple to complex analyses and run analyses in batch mode if desired. JMP® offers a discovery and exploration interface with interactive analysis capabilities.
  • Helps achieve corporate and governmental compliance. You can generate repeatable results that are easily documented and verified.
  • Lets users create and utilize custom add-ins. It's easier than ever to extend the use of powerful analytics throughout your organization. You can create custom analytic applications (add-ins) to share with other users. You can even customize menus and toolbars for your add-in.
