SAS® Data Preparation

This offering adds enhancements to SAS® Viya®, including advanced data profiling features, data quality transformations for SAS Data Studio and programming interfaces for data quality operations. 

SAS Data Preparation includes Cloud Data Exchange (CDE), a data connection capability that securely copies high-volume data from an on-premises store to a cloud-based instance of SAS Viya for use in SAS Viya applications. The CDE also allows Cloud Analytic Services to read and write data stored on-premises. SAS Data Agent enables you to move data to and from the cloud.
