SAS® Visual Statistics

Discover. Predict. Act. Decisively.

Multiple users can explore data, then interactively create and refine predictive models. Distributed, in-memory processing slashes model development time, quickly surfacing valuable insights you can act on.

Put better models into action faster.

Easily build and refine models to target specific groups or segments, and run numerous scenarios simultaneously. You can ask more what-if questions to get better results. And put results into action with automatically generated score code.

Boost analytical productivity.

Empower multiple users to interact with data visually – to add or change variables, remove outliers, etc. Instantly see how changes affect your model's predictive power, and make refinements quickly.

Gain the freedom to experiment.

Data science teams have the ultimate flexibility of working in their language of choice, so they can use their skills to the fullest. SAS Visual Statistics unites all analytical assets – whether created using SAS or other languages like R, Python, Java or Lua – within a common solution.

Key Features

  • Visual data exploration and discovery. Use SAS Visual Analytics to easily identify predictive drivers among multiple exploratory variables, and visually identify outliers and data discrepancies.
  • Descriptive modeling. Visually explore and evaluate segments for further analysis using k-means clustering, scatter plots and detailed summary statistics.
  • Predictive modeling. Build predictive models using a variety of machine-learning techniques from a visual or programming interface.
  • Open, code-based model development. Programmatically access analytical actions from SAS Studio, call them from other languages – Python, R, Lua, Java – or use public REST APIs to add SAS Analytics to existing applications.
  • Dynamic group-by processing. Concurrently build models and process results for each group or segment without having to sort or index data each time.
  • Model comparison and assessment. Generate model comparison summaries (lift charts, ROC charts, concordance statistics, misclassification tables) on one or more models.
  • Model scoring. Export models as SAS DATA step code, and apply them to new data.
  • Distributed, in-memory analytical processing. Build models faster on diverse data sets, including Hadoop. There's no need to shuffle data or write data to disk.
  • Flexible deployment options. Runs on commodity hardware, in a private or public cloud infrastructure, Cloud Foundry platform as a service (PaaS) or managed software as a service (SaaS).
