"loved this book!! It is absolutely perfect for any new or old users of SAS Visual Analytics. Fantastic reference. I really liked the last section regarding Visual Analytics on SAS Viya. I am recommending An Introduction to SAS Visual Analytics to all the PhD students and professors at Kennesaw State University who are currently using SAS Visual Analytics/SAS Visual Statistics/SAS ESP, including the SAS support staff there. Also recommending this to my team that is supporting and installing SAS Viya and SAS Visual Analytics.

"Great reference. Great Book!"

"SAS Visual Analytics has become a powerful solution, tailor-cut for the most exigent requirements from the business, targeted to allow easy exploration and preparation of the data for reporting. Its High Performance SAS LASR Analytic Server and sleek-looking reports enable decision makers to make informed choices quickly.

"Viya, the new SAS architecture, includes SAS Visual Analytics as part of its foundation. Therefore, understanding SAS Visual Analytics will become even more important for SAS users. An Introduction to SAS Visual Analytics provides an excellent tutorial by starting with a good introduction for SAS users with limited experience working towards more functional and technical advanced topics, such as how the SAS LASR Analytic Server works, LASR performance, and how to create complex and advanced reports.

"Ryan Kumpfmiller and Tricia Aanderud, who both love to assist many users in the SAS Communities on a daily basis, are seen as experts on SAS Visual Analytics. They have had excellent support from Rob Collum, a SAS Principal Architect, to write this book that should not be missed by anyone working or planning to work with SAS Visual Analytics.

"I expect that this book will guide many new SAS 9 and SAS Viya users during their first steps and will guide more experienced users to leverage their knowledge of the solution, and lead them to a better understanding between SAS administrators and the users of SAS Visual Analytics."
