- by Ruth Hummel, Elizabeth A. Claassen, and Russell D. WolfingerThis book will use the visual features and the other unique features of JMP to appeal to a broader data analytics audience than the SAS programming audience of SAS for Mixed Models, covering the topic of mixed models for the first time in a full JMP book. This book will be a comprehensive introduction to and reference manual on and include new features of the software. Topics will include analysis of simple, intermediate and complex experiments using mixed model methods in JMP, specifically DOE, single and multiple random effect models, repeated measures and spatial models, random coefficient models, and power analysis.
- By Alun Lloyd Brain and Sameer RahmanThis book is a practical guide designed to walk readers through the different steps of developing and deploying a predictive model in a direct marketing environment. This book will contain information on creating the models in both SAS and R, before focusing on how to present and deploy them to get the best business outcome.
- By Robert RodriguezThis book will give readers a high-level awareness and understanding of newer regression modeling procedures in SAS that are valuable for supervised machine learning, predictive analytics, and statistical modeling. This goal of this short book is to explain the relative benefits of these procedures, introduce the procedures with basic examples, and help users navigate to procedures and methods that meet their needs. The audience for this book includes newcomers to SAS—in particular, data scientists—who might have encountered some of the methods in open source software and are unaware of what SAS offers. The audience also includes longtime SAS users who are familiar with the REG procedure but have not kept up with the availability of newer and more effective procedures in SAS/STAT and SAS Viya.
- By James GearheartEnd-to-End Data Science with SAS®: A Hands-On Programming Guide provides clear and practical explanations of the data science environment, machine learning techniques and the SAS code necessary for the proper development and evaluation of these highly desired techniques. These explanations are demonstrated with real-world business applications across a variety of industries.
- By John WardAs a new SAS Viya administrator, it can be a bit overwhelming knowing where to start in making sure the SAS Viya system is setup as best as it can be and making sure it runs at peak performance. This book will provide a starting point on configuration settings to be aware of and system monitoring techniques to help the SAS system administrator.
- By Engy FoudaLearning Data Science in Four Days Using SAS will introduce the reader to SAS using screenshots from SAS University Edition GUI and advanced techniques using SAS Viya for Learners. The book’s main objectives are to demonstrate how the power of SAS GUI makes data analytics much easier compared to other languages, to show how to write SAS code and understand the code that is generated from the GUI choices, and to demonstrate how to clean and analyze real data sets. The book will cover the syntax, conditional, looping, regression, and the basic program structure. The author will use real-life case studies to expose readers to examples from a multitude of industries such as health care, politics, marketing, and finance. In addition, the author will briefly explain statistical theories for novices.
- By Richard and Adele CutlerThis book is aimed at university students taking a second course in statistics with an emphasis on regression methods, and at SAS practitioners in business, industry, and many other disciplines who wish to know more about modern, machine learning regression methods. For some this book will be an introduction to regression methods, but others will be familiar with linear regression such as is implemented in PROC REG, and this book will provide information on modern methods including the LASSO and elastic net for regularization, quantile regression, and non‐linear semi‐parametric and non‐parametric regression methods such as generalized additive models, regression trees, and random forests. While the format of the book is that of a textbook, a SAS user with experience doing traditional regression will be able to immediately turn to chapters on machine learning methods, see a full discussion of the methods, and examples in SAS illustrating their use.
- By Randy CollicaThis book is about is about one of the most popular analytic methods that is used by all industries, and that is clustering and segmentation. This book will endeavor to use the latest and greatest methods available that shows the power of SAS Viya while also solving typical industry issues. It will also cover how to combine segments into one segmentation while retaining the information content of the input segments – ensemble segmentation with business applications. The main book’s subject is on the use of clustering and ML methods for the purpose of segmenting customer or client data into useful categories for marketing, market research, next best offers by segment, etc.
