April 29 • 10 a.m CET • Duration: 1h


About the webinar

SAS® Viya® 4 is engineered to take advantage of the latest cloud technologies. Designed to be delivered and updated continuously, the new architecture helps bring powerful analytics to everyone, everywhere. Because SAS Viya integrates the art of decision making with the science of artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics, organizations will be able to make better decisions, faster. The innovation behind this release underscores SAS’ commitment to helping organizations transform data into intelligence.

With a reimagined cloud-native architecture and the availability of interactive or programming interfaces, SAS customers will no longer be bound by programming language, data silos, or skills. Automated data preparation, machine learning (AutoML), and model deployment improve the productivity of scarce data science resources and expand AI capabilities to those with more widely available skill sets.

With a renewed focus on APIs, SAS Viya 4 makes it easier for application developers to collaborate with data science teams and respond quickly to changing business needs. These capabilities allow customers to acquire and consume enterprise-scale analytics in the most efficient way; they can consume just the AI services they need.

SAS Viya 4 uses continuous integration, continuous delivery (CI/CD) process that allows customers to choose their release intervals, so they gain access to the latest product innovations the moment they’re ready or can incorporate updates into their own change-management schedules. The container-based architecture, orchestrated by Kubernetes, provides portability across different cloud environments, including Azure, Google, AWS, and OpenShift.
