SAS® Scoring Accelerator

SAS format library

  • File that is deployed once to the database system.

SAS Enterprise Miner Score Export node

  • Automatically included in your SAS Enterprise Miner installation for adding to your process flow diagram analyses.
  • Exports the model-scoring logic, including metadata about the required input and output variables.
  • Generates sample training and a scoring data set for testing.
  • Register SAS Enterprise Miner models to SAS Model Manager (optional).

Register SAS/STAT linear models to SAS Model Manager

  • SAS Model Manager is required to register and publish linear models created using SAS/STAT and for in-database scoring using SAS Scoring Accelerator.
  • Support is available for a select set of predictive models created using the following procedures: LOGISTIC, GENMOD, REG, GLMSELECT, GLM, GLIMMIX and MIXED.

SAS Scoring Accelerator publishing client

  • Automatically translates and publishes the model as a scoring function or SAS DS2 program inside the database.
  • Generates a script of database commands for registering the scoring function or SAS DS2 program inside the database.
  • Scoring functions or SAS DS2 programs are available for use in any SQL expression wherever database-specific built-in functions are typically used.
  • Publishes model as protected or unprotected.
  • Supports SAS intrinsic and user-defined formats.
  • Supports a robust class of SAS Enterprise Miner predictive and descriptive models, including the preliminary transformation layer (such as data imputations).
  • Provides variable binning and reduction.

Integrated environment for tracking & monitoring model performance over time

  • Fully integrated with SAS Model Manager (required for SAS/STAT linear models and optional for SAS Enterprise Miner models) to further streamline the registration, validation and scoring of SAS models in the database.

Deploying models created using SAS Viya®

  • In SAS Viya, models created by submitting a CAS action or a SAS procedure, or by using Model Studio, can be deployed in-database for scoring purposes. For a complete list of which SAS Viya models are supported by the SAS Scoring Accelerator, see this table.

Scoring accelerators are available for:

  • Hadoop (Cloudera and Hortonworks distributions).
  • Teradata Enterprise Data Warehouse.
  • Spark (Databricks and Azure Synapse Analytics).
