Quickly prepare data for analytics using machine learning and AI suggestions – without coding, needing specialized skills or relying on IT.

Self-service data preparation from SAS – on SAS® Viya® – helps you access, profile, cleanse and transform data from an intuitive interface. Get the job done without an IT or data specialist. 

Self-service interface

Generates code automatically from an intuitive, point-and-click interface so nontechnical users can profile, cleanse, blend and move data without specialized skills or training.  

Access data from multiple sources

Accesses data from flat files, relational data sources, social media, SAS data sets, Hadoop, data lakes, the cloud, Teradata, CSV or text files, or any source defined by licensed SAS/ACCESS® software.

Ability to code

Enables technical users who prefer to code to access SAS Data Quality routines from SAS code or third-party coding languages (e.g., Python).

Built-in data quality & integration

Includes prebuilt transformations and data cleansing functions to assist data scientists and business users in the exploration, refinement and transformation of data analytical readiness.

In-memory, fast processing of data

Combines advanced analytics, data visualization and data preparation capabilities to help you prepare data quickly for analysis. Speeds performance with bulk data movement, including parallel read/write for some sources.  

Integration into analytics pipeline

Integrates prepared data into the analytics pipeline automatically, creating a seamless data discovery and data preparation user experience.  

Machine learning & AI suggestions

Scans data and makes intelligent transformation suggestions using machine learning and AI. You can accept suggestions and complete transformations at the click of a button, no advanced or complex coding required.

Cloud data exchange

Securely copies data from on-site repositories to a cloud-based SAS Viya instance running in a private or public cloud for use in SAS Viya applications and sending data back to on-site locations. Preprocess data locally, reducing the amount of data that needs to be moved to remote locations.

Get the business insights you need – on your own. Act quickly. Make decisions confidently. Work more efficiently. 

Be more productive by working autonomously.

No need for specialized skills. No coding or SQL required. Our visual interface makes data preparation easy by removing technical barriers and enabling you to blend, wrangle and shape data on your own – where it is then integrated as part of your reporting and analytics pipeline. This frees IT to focus on more strategic work, while you get insights needed to investigate data at will.

Prepare data faster so you're ready for action. 

Minimize the time you spend preparing data so you can spend more time analyzing it. Prebuilt transformations and data cleansing functions run in memory to increase processing speed. Advanced analytics, data visualization and data preparation capabilities are seamlessly combined. The result? You have more time to explore data, get answers and react to situations in near-real time.

Reuse data preparation tasks for more efficiency.  

Duplicated work wastes valuable time. SAS Data Preparation helps you share automatically generated code with IT so it can be scheduled to run during every source data update. You can also save data preparation plans to be used by others. Shared work leads to more productivity – and everyone benefits.

Collaborate with other team members.  

Working with multiple members of your team on the same project has never been easier. With SAS Data Preparation you can share jobs as centrally managed assets. Project activity feeds can be set to notify teams and individuals of changes and updates. You can share and reuse tasks and existing plans, post updates and work together to boost productivity and generate more value from your data.
