Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with SAS Predictive Analytics.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The dashboard could be made easier to use. I think that SAS BA represents an evolution of the product in this regard. I think that this solution should be more compatible with other software, including open-source solutions. If SAS were more flexible in terms of licensing then that would be good, because it costs more than other solutions. I would like to see more flexibility in the interface so that a person at the managerial level can also make use of it in a basic way.
There are not many people deploying models using this solution, which is a problem. I have done some cross-development and have found that when I am building models with the open-source software, the accuracy is better. For categorical data, the models built by SAS Emailer are very complex compared to those built by the open-source version. Technical support could be improved because they take too long to answer our queries. Models that are created are a block box, and you can't see the details.
