This paper is a free course in 78 pages on the SAS programming language under SAS Viya. Main topics are :SAS Viya Deployment, Foundational Programming in SAS Viya, Statistical Programming in SAS Viya and Data Management in SAS Viya.
This paper talkes about the SWAT, The SAS Scripting Wrapper for Analytics Transfer, a package developed by SAS to allow the Python interface to access the SAS Viya platform.
If you are familiar with SAS programming and technology and discover SAS Viya, then this paper is just for you. This document gives you SAS Viya definition and couple of screenshots. Moreover, it explain which SAS code you have to use to create a CAS Session, a CAS library, load data to the CAS library (etc) Finaly, it explains the main changes and new options between syntax in 9.4 and Viya (data step, formats, DS2 (etc)) Some useful examples are also indicated.
This paper is a technical paper explaining the main differences between SAS 9,4 M6 and SAS Viya 3.4.
This free E-book is a collection of papers talking all about SAS Viya but from different point of view: Administrative view , Data Mining, Exploration, Maching learning, predictive modeling, data step, VA, open source integration (etc)
This 15 pages paper is interesting for 3 points: first it talk about factorization machines, second it gives you an end-to-end example on an analytical project from the creation of the model to the call using RESTful Api and third it shows you one more example of interaction of Python into SAS.
You already know the SAS programming language in V9 and want to code in Viya? This paper is made for you and contains everything needed to load and interact with data of CAS from SAS Studio
This paper guides you through the enhancements in data preparation with SAS Visual Analytics 8.2 (on Viya) and demonstrates valuable tips for reducing runtimes of your data preparation tasks
This document explain from stratch everything you have to know when you use SAS Viya for the first time: it provied a complete example of programming in the CAS environment.The discussion also covers other details that you need in order to start programming in CAS, including everything from loading files into CAS to manipulating the data with the SAS DATA step. The paper also discusses the CAS and CASUTIL procedures.
This paper is a gentle introduction to using Python to access analytics from CAS. We begin with information on how to obtain the Python client and install it. We then show you how to connect to an existing CAS server and run actions. With those basics out of the way, we move on to more interesting subjects like loading data, performing simple analytics, and basic visualizations. We also demonstrate how to operate on tables in CAS using the popular Pandas DataFrame API. Finally, we cover some bas
