To have a strong position in the analytics economy, the applications for high performance analytics need to be accessible and embeddable. Therefore, developer experience is becoming more and more important. Analytics developers have become the new customers for many technology organisations. Their experience influence decisions and shape the way analytics is

A growing area of focus is analytics developer experience, and for good reason. As with applications, analytics teams need to respond to business needs in an agile manner, and developers play a crucial role. But how exactly does developer experience fit into the broader scheme of things? I asked Mark
If you’ve been following along this year, you know that I spoke to Sanjay Matange last month. Sanjay has a top-selling book to his credit and juggles work, speaking engagements and book writing. Another SAS employee who will soon add “Author” to his name is Kevin D. Smith. Kevin is
Whether you call it Business Intelligence, Business Analytics, Visual Analytics, etc. - getting information to the users when they need it and make it actionable requires more than just software. BI Content Developers can have a certification but to be successful they really need to have an understanding of human
Every person in my department at SAS (User and Customer Marketing) is involved in supporting SAS Global Forum in one way or another. One of the major roles is to coordinate the SAS Demo Area. I recently had a chat with my co-worker Katie Strange, who is responsible for teaming
For OLAP Cube Developers to gain access to SAS 9.2, two items: 1. Authorizing Access to SAS OLAP Servers from SAS http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/biasag/61237/HTML/default/a003311504.htm "Users of SAS OLAP Cube Studio need readMetadata and writeMetadata permissions. To read and update the authorizations for SAS OLAP Servers, follow these steps: 1.Open SAS Management Console.
I can still remember the emergence in the 1990s of Java as a universal and largely open-sourced programming language. Some observers believed it would signal the eventual demise of proprietary languages such as C, Fortran and Cobol. Current surveys, however, and there are many, confirm that plenty of people continue
After almost 32 years, I am retiring from SAS.
In part one of this blog posting series, we introduced that the analytics lifecycle is much more than authoring models. As brands develop and invest into creating models to solve critical business problems, so does the requirement to manage these assets as valuable competitive differentiators. In part two of this
Learn how to use SAS code (PROC HTTP) to read and write files from your Microsoft OneDrive. You'll learn how to create a Microsoft Office 365 app, connect to it with SAS, and automate the integration with your office productivity environment.
You might know that you can use the ODS SELECT statement to display only some of the tables and graphs that are created by a SAS procedure. But did you know that you can use a WHERE clause on the ODS SELECT statement to display tables that match a pattern?
Disclaimer: this article does not cover or promote any political views. It’s all about data and REST APIs. I am relieved, thankful, elated, glad, thrilled, joyful (I could go on with more synonyms from my thesaurus.com search for 'happy') November 6, 2018 has come and gone. Election day is over.
A few weeks ago, the first German SAS® user group meetup took place in Berlin. I had a chance to talk to Igor Khorlo, Senior Statistical Programmer at Syneos Health Germany GmbH and founder of the SUGG, about his motivation to constitute this group. What I experienced was a fascinatingly
In part one of this blog posting series, we introduced machine learning models as a multifaceted and evolving topic. The complexity that gives extraordinary predictive abilities also makes these models challenging to understand. They generally don’t provide a clear explanation, and brands experimenting with machine learning are questioning whether they
This article is the first in a series of three publications covering REST APIs and their use in, and with SAS. Today, I want to cover a basic example using SAS Viya REST APIs to download an image from a report in SAS Visual Analytics.
Will AI dramatically accelerate the division of our society into the “elite” and the “worried rest”? For example, will there be highly effective personalized medicine that only very few can afford? Will AI take over the automatable jobs of the middle class, while the highly qualified elite maintains or even
People who work with data have had a number of job titles in my time, including data admin, data specialist, ETL developer and data integrator. The rise of the term data scientist as the de facto job market term for an analyst, however, left us data people a bit high
Deep learning has taken off because organizations of all sizes are capturing a greater variety of data and can mine bigger data, including unstructured data. It’s not just large companies like Amazon, SAS and Google that have access to big data. It’s everywhere. Deep learning needs big data, and now
These famous SAS Press authors share some tips and tricks for new SAS users.
Fest steht: Künstliche Intelligenz (KI) wird unser aller Leben verändern – und tut es schon. Weniger klar ist, in welcher Weise und in welchem Zeitrahmen diese Veränderungen passieren – und was am Ende dabei herauskommt. In vielen Bereichen gibt es wilde Spekulationen. Bei Life Sciences und im Gesundheitssektor lichtet sich
Deep learning (DL) is a subset of neural networks, which have been around since the 1960’s. Computing resources and the need for a lot of data during training were the crippling factor for neural networks. But with the growing availability of computing resources such as multi-core machines, graphics processing units
Hearing someone talk about why they love their job is palatable when you have to make small talk at a cocktail party. But why spend your free time reading about why someone loves their job? Well, when you hear firsthand about how people are helping track endangered species using the
It’s a race - on one side: fast moving technologies, new business practices, new digital behaviours, the democratisation of analytics and the massive adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies. On the other side: the fundamental right of individuals to protect their privacy. On one side: what we
You can use Unicode to display special characters in SAS output including tables and graphs. With graphs that analytical procedures produce, you might need additional steps.
This blog post introduces the use of deep learning to train a deep neural network to further improve performance; and hybrid architectures.
Since the rise of the industrial revolutions, there has always been a very active debate among the academic community confronting “technology innovation optimist” and “technology innovation pessimist”. Likewise, there is debate whether artificial intelligence (AI), like many previous technologies could have a positive or a negative impact on the economy,
Hybrid computers that marry CPUs and devices like GPUs and FPGAs are the fastest computers, but they are hard to program. This post explains how deep learning (DL) greatly simplifies programming hybrid computers.
As a fun side project I recently looked into alternative visualization techniques in order to use computers to create art. An interesting approach is pointillism, which, according to Wikipedia is a "technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image." This
