SAS Intelligent Decisioning

Drive real-time interactions and automate analytically driven decisions at scale.

SAS Intelligent Decisioning enables you to make the best decisions when interacting with customers, partners, suppliers and employees.

Deliver real-time decisions for all your use cases.

Deliver relevant, interactive, real-time decisions based on business rules and sophisticated analytics at scale to a limitless number of use cases. Easily test decisions prior to deployment to ensure they deliver the expected results. Robust governance ensures your decisions are understood and trusted across the business. High data and decision volumes are easy to handle with a cloud-based architecture that can scale to meet your demands. Deliver decisions at the edge and in stream through integration with IoT devices.

Enable easy collaboration for users of all skill sets.

Build and modify decisioning processes with ease, whether you prefer a drag-and-drop GUI or the ability to write code. Define decisions by browsing centralized data, model and business rule repositories and selecting from existing assets. Compare different objects and versions to understand and track changes for easier collaboration across teams. Ensure accuracy and task transparency using an out-of-the-box, role-based governance workflow to apply various decisioning checkpoints.​

Make the best decision every time.

Improve decision quality by incorporating artificial intelligence and machine learning models from a common repository, created in your preferred language​.

Deploy analytical models in decisions with consistency and speed.

A common decision authoring and deployment environment dramatically reduces the time required for IT to validate and deploy analytical models – whether written in SAS, open source or custom code. From a single interface, you can natively integrate, manage and deploy SAS and Python analytical models, custom code and business rules, with identical logic for both batch and real-time web service execution. That means faster deployment and confidence in the integrity of your analytically driven operational decisions.

Leverage the power of SAS Intelligent Decisioning inside the Microsoft Power Platform.

The SAS Decisioning Power Connector, a certified connector in the Microsoft Power Platform, enables you to link to your SAS Viya environment and run selected decision modules and analytical models within a Microsoft Power App or Power Automate. The SAS Decisioning connector makes it easy for you to combine the two leading platforms for AI-driven business applications and processes​.

Quickly execute more decisions with less effort.

SAS Container Runtime is a lightweight OCI (Open Container Initiative) compliant Docker container for executing SAS models, Python models and Python code. It is highly scalable and can be published to any container registry on Microsoft Azure, AWS and GCP. Users can then take advantage of the cloud infrastructure to deploy with the smallest footprint. This ensures that you can fully utilize your resources to quickly execute the largest number of decisions and reduce the effort required to manage the environment.
