It brings together world-class data prep, visualization, data analysis, model building and model deployment. This unified tooling approach provides a consistent user experience that data scientists need to build even the most sophisticated models.

"SAS' vision for data science is not limited to innovation in tools. It has been quick to jump on new, promising analytical methods across multiple disciplines, such as statistics, econometrics, optimization, machine learning, deep learning, and natural language interaction. It recently introduced support for calling SAS analytics from Python, Java, and Lua, leveraging open source data science notebooks."
