Managing Open Source Models Just Got a Lot Easier: SAS Open Model Manager®
Managing Open Source Models Just Got a Lot Easier: SAS Open Model Manager®

Abstract: 

When it comes to model development and deployment, organizations should have the freedom to choose different languages, tools, techniques, and environments because a modeling melting pot can fuel innovation and creativity. But without a structured process to coordinate all the different pieces, model management can feel more like the wild, wild west – no governance, no oversight, and no strategy for putting analytic insights to work. This is where SAS® Open Model Manager can help. This new offering from SAS can wrangle the model management process by enabling IT and analytics professionals to register, deploy, and monitor open-source models in a consistent, repeatable manner. Users will be able to compare and assess their models, manage champion and challenger models, and access built-in performance reports to quickly evaluate whether to retrain, retire or develop new ones. SAS Open Model Manager integrates with Python and R and is intended for organizations that use open-source tools to build models and need model management capabilities.
