Welcome to the fourth installment in my series Getting Started with Python Integration to SAS Viya. In previous posts, I discussed how to connect to the CAS server, how to execute CAS actions, and how to work with the results. Now it's time to understand how your data is organized
It’s safe to say that SAS Global Forum is a conference designed for users, by users. As your conference chair, I am excited by this year’s top-notch user sessions. More than 150 sessions are available, many by SAS users just like you. Wherever you work or whatever you do, you’ll
SAS Global Forum 2021 will be jam-packed with inspiring content. Register today to ensure you don't miss a second of this year's event.
Readers of my earlier post Discover Visual Analytics Report Paths with REST APIs asked for ways to export SAS Visual Analytics (VA) report content programmatically. I know this is a topic of interest from many VA report designers. So, I think it’s better to write something on this and I
The people, the energy, the quality of the content, the demos, the networking opportunities…whew, all of these things combine to make SAS Global Forum great every year. And that is no exception this year. Preparations are in full swing for an unforgettable conference. I hope you’ve seen the notifications that
Find out the most popular SAS Users YouTube channel how to tutorials, and learn a thing or two!
In my previous blog post, I talked about using PROC CAS to accomplish various data preparation tasks. Since then, my colleague Todd Braswell and I worked through some interesting challenges implementing an Extract, Transform, Load (ETL) process that continuously updates data in CAS. (Todd is really the brains behind getting
If you’re like me and the rest of the conference team, you’ve probably attended more virtual events this year than you ever thought possible. You can see the general evolution of virtual events by watching the early ones from April or May and compare them to the recent ones. We
The model management process, which is part of ModelOps, consists of registration, deployment, monitoring and retraining. This post is part of a series examining the model management process, orchestrated through the Model Manager (MM) APIs. The focus of part one is on model registration, specifically on using the APIs from
Welcome back to my series on securely integrating custom applications into your SAS Viya platform. My goal today is to lay out some examples of the concepts I introduced in the previous posts. As a quick recap: In the first installment of this series I shared my experiences on a
There are three types of visualization APIs defined in the SAS Viya REST API reference documetation: Reports, Report Images and Report Transforms. You may have seen the posts on how to use Reports and Report Images. In this post, I'm going to show you how to use the Report Transforms
This is the third installment of a series focused on discussing the secure integration of custom applications into your SAS Viya platform. I began the series with an example of how a recent customer achieved value-add on top of their existing investments by building a custom app for their employees
Welcome back! Today, I continue with part 2 of my series on building custom applications on SAS Viya. The goal of this series is to discuss securely integrating custom-written applications into your SAS Viya platform. In the first installment of this series, I outlined my experiences on a recent project.
This series is geared towards walking you through a piece of the puzzle of operationalizing your analytics: securely integrating your custom applications into your SAS Viya platform. This is particularly useful after exposing your analytics as HTTP REST APIs, as we'll see an intentionally brief example of in this first
SAS Viya is an open analytics platform accessible from interfaces or various coding languages. REST API is one of the widely used interfaces. Multiple resources exist on how to access SAS Visual Analytics reports using SAS Viya REST API. For example Programmatically listing data sources in SAS Visual Analytics by
Learn how to use SAS code (PROC HTTP) to read and write files from your Microsoft OneDrive, Microsoft Teams or SharePoint Online. 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.
Are you looking for a specific CAS action to use in your project? Maybe you need to create a linear or logistic regression and can't seem to find the CAS action? In this post in the Getting Started with Python Integration to SAS® Viya® series, we are going to look
In the second post of the Getting Started with Python Integration to SAS® Viya® series we will learn about Working with CAS Actions and CASResults Objects. CAS actions are commands sent to the CAS server to run a task, and CASResults objects contain information returned from the CAS server. This

Learning never stops. When SAS had to change this year’s SAS Global Forum (SASGF) to a virtual event, everyone was disappointed. I am, however, super excited about all of the papers and stream of video releases over the last month (and I encourage you to register for the upcoming live
Welcome to the first post for the Getting Started with Python Integration to SAS Viya series! With the popularity of the Python programming language for data analysis and SAS Viya's ability to integrate with Python, I thought, why not create tutorials for users integrating the two? To begin the series
Whether you like it or not, Microsoft Excel is still a big hit in the data analysis world. From small to big customers, we still see fit for daily routines such as filtering, generating plots, calculating items on ad-hoc analysis or even running statistical models. Whenever I talk to customers,
Let’s be honest, there is a lot of SAS content available on the web. Sometimes it gets difficult to navigate through everything to find what you need, especially if you are looking for complimentary resources. Training budgets can be limited or already used for the year, but you’re still interested
As a long-time SAS 9 programmer, I typically accomplish my data preparation tasks through some combination of the DATA Step, Proc SQL, Proc Transpose and some housekeeping procs like Proc Contents and Proc Datasets. With the introduction of SAS Viya, SAS released a new scripting language called CASL – a
Bringing the power of SAS to your Python scripts can be a game changer. An easy way to do that is by using SASPy, a Python interface to SAS allowing Python developers to use SAS® procedures within Python. However, not all SAS procedures are included in the SASPy library. So,
