The report noted: "SAS builds the first truly multimodal PAML solution."
SAS ranked highest in the current offering and market presence categories, and received among the highest scores in the strategy category.
“Highly skilled data scientists and analytical professionals are in short supply as organizations struggle to find solutions to complex business problems,” said Lorry Hardt, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Strategist at SAS. “Built for speed and simplicity, SAS machine learning tools address all of the steps necessary for data scientists to business users alike to turn raw data into actionable insights.”
According to SAS, SAS® Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning offers users a single platform to solve complex analytical problems. Combining data preparation, visualization, advanced analytics and model deployment, it unifies the entire machine learning process, from data access/transformation and preparation to scoring, in one environment. Running on the SAS® Viya® engine, SAS Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning includes the latest statistical, machine learning, deep learning and text analysis algorithms that accelerate structured and unstructured data explorations, while also supporting popular open source languages.
The vendor's [SAS'] new Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning platform lets you round-trip between visual machine learning pipelines and code, and has integrated features for automated machine learning. All of this is packaged in a slick, visual (veteran SAS users take note), unified environment that includes a growing set of well-thought-through visual tools for creating models – even deep neural networks.
