SAS Analytics Accelerator 1.2 for Teradata includes two new SAS/STAT procedures, one new SAS/ETS procedure, and one new Base SAS procedure. There is also a notable change to the syntax of the SQLGENERATION option and one licensing requirement change for installations in a Linux operating system environment.
In-database versions of the CANCORR and FACTOR procedures are available in SAS/STAT 9.22. The CANCORR procedure performs canonical correlation, partial canonical correlation, and canonical redundancy analysis. The FACTOR procedure performs a variety of common factor and component analyses and rotations.
An in-database version of the TIMESERIES procedure is available in SAS/ETS 9.22. The TIMESERIES procedure analyzes time-stamped transactional data with respect to time and accumulates the data into a times series format. The procedure can perform trend and seasonal analysis on the transactions. After the transactional data are accumulated, time domain analysis and frequency domain analysis can be performed on the accumulated time series.
An in-database version of the Base SAS CORR procedure is also now available. The CORR procedure computes correlation coefficients, three nonparametric measures of association, and the probabilities associated with these statistics.
In the initial release of SAS Analytics Accelerator, the SQLGENERATION option of the LIBNAME and OPTIONS statements had four suboptions: NONE, DBMS, ALL, and DBMUST. In this latest release, the DBMUST suboption has been eliminated.
Installation of SAS Analytics Accelerator for Teradata in a Linux operating system environment now requires the installation of Teradata 13 with Global and Persistent Memory (GLOP) feature support. Consult Teradata Support for the specific database version.
