As the world becomes increasingly digital, companies are constantly looking for ways to streamline their processes and make better decisions. Data management has become a crucial aspect of this, and SAS has announced an alliance with Microsoft to advance the integration of generative artificial intelligence (AI) solutions on its SAS Viia advanced analytics platform.
This strategic partnership is an opportunity to explore the next frontier in data management: generative AI solutions. A comparative study published by Futurum Group reveals that SAS Viia’s AI and advanced analytics platform is faster and more cost-effective compared to commercial and open source alternatives, making it a valuable resource for many companies.
SAS Viia offers various features such as bias detection, model tracking, governance or accountability to demonstrate responsible AI to regulatory bodies. The platform also includes internal training on responsible innovation, where employees can discover how SAS software helps analysts use the right data processing.
Data and statistics are almost transversally integrated into the world of sports, where AI and machine learning technologies can find patterns and trends that coaches can use to devise better strategies for the team and help each player be even better. As a result of this technological advancement, the French rugby team has lost only four of their last thirty official matches.
With this partnership, SAS can help companies achieve greater decision-making speed using capabilities such as synthetic data, digital twin simulation, and large language models provided by Microsoft. By leveraging these technologies, companies can find patterns and trends that can be used to make better decisions about their operations, products or services.
