2018 SAS Analyst Conference: Enabling AI for Government
This IDC Perspective highlights the 2018 U.S. SAS Analyst Conference held February 12-14, 2018, in Naples, Florida. Two SAS Viya software solutions that impact government delivery of data-driven services and benefits were featured at this analyst conference: fraud analytics and data and analytics to combat the opioid epidemic. SAS now supports all activity — from data preparation to interactive discovery and exploration to model building and deployment — from a single, visual interface."Enhancements to SAS Viya are making it easier for government customers to build artificial intelligence (AI) solutions by leveraging machine learning, deep learning, text analytics, forecasting, and statistics," says Adelaide O'Brien, research director, IDC Government Insights. "By combining the analytics life cycle, including advanced analytics, data preparation, data management, and integration across multiple data sources, advanced analytics, predictive modeling, entity resolution, and visualization into one platform, government users are now able to go through all the stages of the analytics process without switching software products," she adds.
