It’s increasingly common for companies use a mix of SAS and open source technologies for data integration, data management, business intelligence and advanced analytics. Achieving the right mix and integration of these technologies can be a challenge for companies to manage and to validate especially as their analytics maturity grows.
Here are some of the ways that clients describe these integration challenges:
- Our Python wizards do not know SAS and our SAS gurus don’t know R.
- We’ve built models in Python that aren’t fully inventoried inside of our SAS solutions.
- We want to export the model that we built in SAS Enterprise Miner to execute real time scoring in R.
- We need to provide more robust validation for federal compliance that is not available through the open source list serves.
By integrating the open source ecosystem with SAS Viya clients can resolve these concerns. And, in cases where validation is a concern, the integration between open source and Viya provides the assurance that the algorithms and the math used to create the models have been validated with auditable results.
However, without the right mix of knowledge and experience in working through the finer points of open source integration with SAS, you are not achieving the maximum value available from your investment in both SAS and open source.
