Why SAS? Viya??

Conquer your analytics challenges, from experimental to mission critical, with faster decisions in the cloud. Viya enables you to scale and operationalize insights, enabling everyone – data scientists, business analysts, developers and executives alike – to collaborate and realize innovative results faster.

Decision Focused

While many organizations build powerful analytic models, only half of them ever make it into production. ?That's a lot of waste. Viya simplifies model deployment, integrates with business rules, and enables you to centrally monitor and manage the performance of all your analytic models.

Developer Friendly

Application developers must interact with a wide variety of data and analytics-related programmatic approaches. Embed Viya into your applications using public APIs that are called only when needed, saving you time and resources, and reducing the tradeoff between speed and development excellence.?


Automated data preparation, machine learning (AutoML) and model deployment improve the productivity of scarce data science resources and expand AI capabilities to those with more widely available skill sets. Results are explained in easy-to-understand terms so you can act in the moment with confidence.?


As AI and machine learning become more widespread, organizations struggle to use trusted data, explain decisions and foster ethical AI adoption. Viya centralizes the management of all open source and SAS models, lineage and templates, giving you full visibility and control over all your modeling activities?.

Data Driven

Gain tangible results from all your data – big and small – interactively, on a schedule or while data is in motion. SAS connects to and integrates with all kinds of data (structured, unstructured, text, documents, audio and images) wherever it resides (in the cloud, on-site, or in your data lakes in traditional systems).


Accelerate innovation with processing power and efficiency, whether you’re running in a cloud, on-site or hybrid environment. Code is portable among on-site installations, from on-site to cloud provider, or from one cloud provider to another, so you avoid vendor lock-in.

SAS? Viya? & the Analytics Life Cycle


SAS Viya can help you accelerate the analytics life cycle, orchestrating the entire process?–?from data, to discovery, to deployment. That's the Viya difference.

SAS? Viya? & the Analytics Life Cycle


Streamline data access and preparation – and enhance data quality?– while ensuring the proper controls are in place. Viya dramatically increases the productivity and speed of your analytics resources.

Access data of any complexity, size or speed with a robust suite of data management tools.

Streamline data preparation with native access engines, integrated data quality, and data preparation tools that use AI to automate time-consuming tasks.

Take advantage of traditional, structured data as well as new formats, such as streaming sensor data.

SAS? Viya? & the Analytics Life Cycle


Discovery is about exploration, visualization and model building. Viya puts an incredible breadth and depth of analytic techniques at your fingertips, accessible from SAS or open source languages such as Python, R or Lua. Analysts can use any language they want, while benefiting from the computational power of Viya.

Tackle problems of any size or complexity with an extensive suite of proven analytic techniques.

Take advantage of programming-language flexibility, which gives you broader access to algorithms and a larger talent pool to hire from.

Make powerful analytics accessible to everyone across your organization, regardless of skill or experience.

Deploying analytics into production is where your efforts to get and analyze data pay off, with an ROI for your time, data, technology and processes. It's also where organizations struggle the most. Viya helps you deploy SAS and open source models into any environment fast.

Select the best model and govern its use –?whether you're building one or thousands – with robust model governance. Evaluate and select the champion model from all competing models. Then register it in a centralized repository, with version control, for visibility and simplified compliance processes.

Get the best models into production quickly with faster, easier model deployment – no recoding needed. Deploy models in a few clicks to a range of targets – e.g., in database, streaming, a container or a REST API. Or deploy them into a decisioning/workflow engine.

Build models once and deploy them anywhere – without recoding and without an additional testing cycle. The Viya unified code base saves you immense time and effort.

SAS? Viya? & the Analytics Life Cycle


Viya goes beyond providing data, discovery and deployment capabilities by helping you orchestrate your entire analytics ecosystem. By connecting and accelerating analytic life cycle activities, Viya gets you from data to tangible results faster.


Gain an upstream and downstream understanding of how data is used and transformed?– from sources to transformations, models and reports – with a visual overview. And identify related data that has potential value.


Automatically monitor model performance over time to ensure models continue to perform as expected, regardless of the language used to create them. Track models from inception to usage to retirement. Get notified automatically when performance degrades so?you can improve, replace or remove the model from production.


Improve efficiency and effectiveness throughout the analytics life cycle.?Speed data preparation with intelligent tagging that uses AI to identify data type within a column. Generate models fast using templates and automated analysis. Use automated workflows to streamline operationalizing and updating models.
