For the sixth consecutive year, SAS retains its status as a Leader.
“Machine learning is a critical tool in the modern data scientist toolbox,” said Lorry Hardt, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Strategist at SAS. “It allows organizations to quickly identify opportunities for their business, but also avoid risks that may go unnoticed by humans.”
SAS’ evaluation is based on two solutions key to the success of its data scientist users – SAS Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning and SAS® Enterprise Miner™. Both offer users the ability to solve complex analytical problems that drive better decision making.
SAS Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning, which runs on the SAS® Viya® engine, 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. It unifies the entire machine learning process, from data access/transformation and preparation to scoring, in one environment.
SAS Enterprise Miner helps identify relationships and patterns buried in a company’s data. It streamlines the data mining process to create accurate predictive and descriptive analytical models to find the best fit, no matter the size of the data set.
Within the field of data science, Machine Learning (ML) is the most popular area. It is one that warrants specific attention by those evaluating these platforms.
