Quick overview on SAS Visual Analytics from the SAS Software Youtube channel below.

Excuse the number of times they say daaaattaaaa and the word Billion (and no thats not the price 😉

Interesting bits I picked up:

  • It automatically picks the most suitable visualisation/graph type based on the data you select to show
  • It allows users to create hierarchies, rather than force us to create them via backend ETL
  • Mapping is embedded (6.1 uses OpenStreetMap)
  • It works on Billons of rows  and big data 😉

Insight at the speed of sight, yeah baby, excited yet?
