Gartner positions SAS as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Data Science and Machine Learning Platforms 2020 | SAS Italy


SAS is a Leader in 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Science & Machine Learning Platforms

For the seventh consecutive year, SAS is positioned as a Leader.

This Gartner Magic Quadrant report evaluates vendors of data science and machine learning (ML) platforms. These are software products that enable expert data scientists, citizen data scientists and application developers to create, deploy and manage their own advanced analytic models. SAS’ evaluation is based on SAS Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning.

SAS Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning provides automated insights and interpretability, automated feature engineering and modeling, and a public API for automated modeling.


“Automated machine learning improves the productivity of data scientists by handling much of the repetitive tasks associated with model development,“ said Susan Kahler, Global Product Marketing Manager for AI at SAS. “This frees up data scientists to focus on creating solutions to best address the problem at hand.”

SAS Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning, which runs on SAS® Viya®, supports the end-to-end data mining and machine learning process with a comprehensive visual and programming interface. SAS empowers analytics team members of all skill levels with a simple, powerful and automated way to handle all tasks in the analytics life cycle. 



As with last year’s Magic Quadrant, vendors are heavily focused on innovation and differentiation, rather than pure execution. Innovation remains key to survival and relevance.
