Recognizing that so many organizations have struggled with the global pandemic and its effects, SAS CEO and founder Jim Goodnight says SAS Viya can help in the toughest times. “SAS Viya helps organizations see their data, customers and operations in new ways that encourage confident decision making,” said Goodnight. “Leading organizations like Hanesbrands, Mercy, Banco Bradesco and Qualitas Insurance Company rely on SAS Viya each day. Organizations expect to accelerate innovation and reduce costs when they operationalize analytics.” SAS Viya provides the missing layer between models developed in multiple languages and the systems where they’re deployed, eliminating the need for time-consuming recoding to deploy models.

SAS Viya is now available on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, marking the latest momentum in SAS’ strategic partnership with Microsoft announced last year. This integration between Azure and the SAS Viya analytics platform will empower customers to stand up SAS analytics in their cloud environments with ease, run them reliably, easily give users access to the latest innovations and enhancements and centrally manage everything with tools they are already familiar with. All of this will enable IT to focus less on routine analytics workloads and more on high-value, strategic workloads that help business leaders make better decisions.

As for joint solutions, the Predict & Plan Consumer Demand offering built on SAS Viya is available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace now.
