Digital transformation is driving the need for organizations to establish a unified analytics ecosystem. To optimize cost, increase flexibility, and operationalize analytics, organizations must:
o Acquire new analytic capabilities: expand depth and use of new analytic technologies in both open source and SAS systems.
o Evolve software architectures for the cloud: strategically migrate analytic workloads to new cloud computing patterns like containers
o Manage the entire analytics life cycle: manage, monitor, and measure analytic models across this expanding ecosystem
o Embed analytics into operations: Combine models with business rules, embed them into decision endpoints, and feed results back into the analytics life cycle.

The latest evolution in digital transformation is no different; with SAS’ investments in technology, services, and flexible commercial terms, we will continue to be a trusted navigator of this ecosystem and guide our customers towards operationalizing analytics.
