What you'll learn

  • Learn how SAS empowers you with choice and control, helping you uncover insights from any data for better, faster decisions

Description

A successful analytics strategy is all about the balance of choice and control. This empowers analysts and data scientists with the ability to choose from a wide variety of analytic techniques, data sources, deployment options, and programming languages while being able to trust the results and see them rapidly deployed. IT leaders need choices for deployment options and architecture while maintaining appropriate controls for data governance, security, and transparency.

SAS empowers you with choice and control, helping you uncover insights from any data for better, faster decisions regardless of language.  Sarah Gates shares methods for accelerating the analytics lifecycle, improving data preparation, quality, and governance, automating and speeding up time-consuming tasks, and quickly creating, selecting, and deploying models—be it one or thousands.

This session is sponsored by SAS.
