About this paper
“Unpolluted” data is core to a successful business – particularly one that relies on analytics to survive. But preparing data for analytics is full of challenges. In fact, most data scientists spend 50 to 80 percent of their model development time simply preparing data. SAS adheres to five data management best practices that provide access to all types of raw data and let you cleanse, transform and shape it for any analytic purpose. As a result, you can gain deeper insights, embed that knowledge into models, share new discoveries and automate decision-making processes across your business.
