This post is an introduction to SAS Visual Forecasting 8.2. We'll build a Visual Forecasting (VF) Pipeline, which is a process flow diagram whose nodes represent tasks in the VF Process. The objective is to show how to perform the full analytics life cycle with large volumes of data: from accessing data and assigning variable roles accurately, to building forecasting models, to select a champion model and overriding the system generated forecast.
The release of SAS Viya 3.3 has brought some nice data quality features. In addition to the visual applications like Data Studio or Data Explorer that are part of the Data Preparation offering, one can leverage data quality capabilities from a programming perspective. Here is an overview of SAS Data Quality 3.3 programming capabilities.
