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.
Prior to distributed DATA Step, DATA Step programmers never had to think about achieving repeatable results because DATA Step ran single-threaded and the source SAS7BDAT dataset was stored on disk. But if you need to obtain repeatable results in DATA Step code that runs distributed in CAS, this post provides a workaround that you'll want to keep handy.
This blog post outlines how to create your own CAS functions using the CAS Language. It also includes a partial list of both CASL built-in and common functions for reference.
Emerging technologies enable retailers to differentiate with data and analytics that enhance the customer experience. In four key ways, retailers can partner with the analytics using data associated with past and present interactions and, through systemic innovation capitalize on future customer interactions.
Migration, version road maps and configurations were the themes of several questions that came up in a recent webinar about combining SAS Grid Manager and SAS Viya. This blog post gives the answers.
You can communicate with various clients (SAS, Python, Lua, Java, and REST) in the same place using SAS® Cloud Base Analytics Services (CAS) in SAS Viya. But before you can do any analysis in CAS you need some data to work with, and a way to get to it. Check out this dynamic data selection tip using SAS Viya and Python.
In their new book, SAS Viya: the R Perspective, Kevin Smith and Xiangxiang Meng provide an overview of using R with the SAS Viya platform. Read on to see how R programmers can use CAS.
SAS Technical Support has had several requests from customers who want to use SAS® software to help download their files from a website when there is no application programming interface (API) to do it. This post shows how to automate downloads using PROC HTTP and DATA step, and how to use the HTTP DEBUG statement.
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.
How do you deploy your model so that business processes can make use of it? This post explores how SAS Viya applications can directly add models to a model repository, and specifically focuses on how to deploy them with SAS Model Manager to Hadoop.
