SAS® and Open Source Integration

SAS® Viya® integrates open source technology in every step of the analytics life cycle, enabling collaboration across all types of SAS and open source users.

Why use SAS® Viya® with open source?

Turn your models into smarter business decisions. SAS Viya enables all thinkers and innovators to extract insights from data using their tool of choice.

Deploy & execute open source models everywhere

Put your models into production with simultaneous access to multiple deployment destinations. Execute analytics however you like – using APIs, in batch, in a private docker, on Azure, etc. The choice is yours.

Govern & orchestrate your analytics ecosystem

Using different tools, frameworks and technologies to develop models fuels innovation and creativity. But it can also mean a level of complexity that makes it difficult to turn analytics into value. SAS supports models in different languages, moving them from sandbox to production in a centralized, governed manner that meets any scalability requirement.

Integrate models into business applications

A model has no value until it becomes a product, tool or solution users can interact with. SAS REST APIs let you easily customize and integrate open source analytics into your business applications so you can realize value quickly.
