SAS® Optimization

Analysts, data scientists and other optimization professionals can identify actions that will produce the best results with this programming entry point, running on the SAS® Viya® platform. By accessing the LP, MILP, network and QP optimization solvers from SAS® clients or from clients other than SAS (Python, Lua, Java and R), you can leverage the speed, scalability and elasticity of the SAS in-memory environment. SAS Optimization requires SAS® Visual Analytics and includes SAS/OR®.
