SAS® Risk Modeling

Develop, backtest, and monitor risk models and scorecards in-house, while minimizing model risk and improving governance. SAS Risk Modeling is an end-to-end solution that helps institutions develop and track credit risk models. It also helps manage the full modeling life cycle through an integrated environment using one comprehensive platform of SAS® Viya®.

SAS Risk Modeling is powered by Cloud Analytic Services (CAS). CAS, through its design, enables this product to effectively model and score on a large scale with its highly parallel and distributed architecture.  

It integrates with other SAS products, such as SAS® Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning, to accommodate the diverse modeling needs across business domains.
