SAS Visual Analytics Review

Auto-charting helps identify the best chart for the categories and measures selected, but on deployment, it throws up errors like "ask your system administrator."

Valuable Features

  • Correlation
  • Forecasting
  • Autocharting
  • Geomaps

Improvements to My Organization

The correlation gives us a better understanding of new data. Also, with auto-charting, it helps in identifying the best chart for the categories and measures selected.

Room for Improvement

Many things missing, including -

  • Infomaps
  • Facebook connection
  • Better objects
  • Forecasting, auto-charting, and correlation are only available in exploration but should be available in reports
  • Server issues - it is difficult to connect to the public LASR server at times, then requesting SAS support and waiting for them to answer
