Getting Started With SAS Viya

The AI and analytics life cycle is how you deliver data-driven decisions. The faster you move through it – by automating as much of the process as possible – the more value you’ll gain from your analytics investment.

Everything you need, all in one platform.

Access and integrate data from virtually any source with our data management capabilities. A suggestion engine simplifies data prep. And data governance tracks data and model lineage, so if your data changes, you'll know which models need retraining.
