A container is a mechanism that encapsulates the system libraries and functions for a piece of software to run. Software packaged in containers is rapidly growing in popularity because it makes managing and deploying software much easier. Cloud adoption, big data, and the need to quickly build and experiment with more predictive models are also driving increased use of containers.
Zencos and SAS have partnered to build knowledge and capability in deploying analytics in containers. Now, data scientists, statisticians, and business analysts can build SAS code, models and applications that run within container-enabled infrastructures.
