Managing Models in SAS(R) Viya(R)

Course code: VMM53

This applied, hands-on course teaches you how to manage models through their useful life cycle. You start by creating a modeling project, and then add and compare models to it so you can identify a champion model. The course uses models that are created using SAS Advanced Analytics capabilities and Python and R languages. The course also shows how to implement procedures that ensure that model governance and oversight approval is being followed by implementing workflow.

You learn how to test a model in the production environment to which it will be deployed. After the model test runs successfully, you learn how to schedule the model to run automatically.

Further, the course shows how to measure and monitor the ongoing performance of model accuracy over time. The performance monitoring process will also be scheduled to run automatically in class.

An optional lesson shows how to register and score four types of SAS Visual Text Analytics models.
