Going Cloud Native with SAS Viya

    About the webinar

    "More insights from more data, at a much higher velocity and with increasing variety”, this is what is demanded of us as solution designers in a world driven by, and into the Cloud. Moreover, we’re still expected to deliver new capabilities in shorter timeframes, with less upfront funding and an exploding range of technology choices to negotiate, whilst still maintaining excellent security and governance.

    Taking an analytics platform into the cloud is no small undertaking, and with it comes all the complexities of integrating with this brave new data landscape. SAS is showing that going “Cloud-Native” is the smart way to venture forth. Not only can SAS provide world leading software capability but can now host and run your analytics platform in the cloud.

    Why attend:

    • Discover how SAS Viya is architected for Cloud
    • Learn how SAS Viya natively integrates with your modern Data Lake
    • See what is possible when DevOps meets Analytics
