In today’s fast-paced business environment, managing data correctly is essential for companies looking to digitize and streamline their processes. SAS has recently announced an alliance with Microsoft to advance the integration of generative AI solutions on its SAS Viya advanced analytics platform. This strategic partnership presents an opportunity to further explore the next frontier in data management: generative AI.
According to a comparative study published by The Futurum Group, SAS Viya is faster and more cost-effective compared to commercial and open-source alternatives when it comes to data management. The platform offers a range of features, including bias detection, model monitoring, governance, and accountability, which help regulatory bodies ensure responsible AI practices. Additionally, SAS has launched internal training on responsible innovation to educate employees on how its software can be used to process data correctly.
The use of AI and machine learning technologies has also found applications in the world of sports, where coaches can use these technologies to analyze patterns and trends that can inform better strategies for their teams. For example, the French Rugby team has lost only four of their last thirty official matches thanks to these technological advancements.
With this partnership, SAS and Microsoft aim to help companies achieve greater decision speed using capabilities such as synthetic data, digital twin simulation, and large language models. By leveraging these tools together with AI and machine learning technologies, organizations can gain valuable insights from their data that can inform better decision-making processes.
