CARY, N.C., March 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The oven mitts are off as one of analytics top chefs SAS prepares to take the stage at the Gartner Data Science and Machine Learning Bake-Off in Orlando, FL, on March 22. Part of the Gartner Data and Analytics North America Summit, the Bake-Off will serve up a smorgasbord of data analytics delicacies, expertly prepared on the machine learning platforms of select advanced analytics vendors in head-to-head, live-action demonstrations.

SAS is one of three vendors chosen to participate in the Bake-Off, invited by Gartner based on market interest. This invitation can be attributed to SAS Viya, a comprehensive AI and analytics platform that runs on a modern, scalable architecture. 

SAS will also participate in the Bake-Off event at the London Gartner Data & Analytics Summit in May.

SAS, an advanced analytics top chef
The Gartner Summit brings together technology companies and data and analytics experts to address the most significant challenges business leaders face as they build the organizations of the future.

Gartner's Bake-Off provides analytics users a unique opportunity to compare participating vendors side-by-side. The scripted demos will focus on key user requirements and end-to-end requirements for building and deploying machine learning models, using a common data set in a controlled environment. According to Gartner, "The requirements will focus on areas in which vendors often take a different approach, intentionally revealing differences, strengths and weaknesses."

SAS believes its selection by Gartner for the Bake-Off is further validation of the analytics leader's award-winning recipe for data and analytics solutions. SAS also is recognized as a Leader in 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Data Quality and Multichannel Marketing Hubs. In 2022, SAS was recognized as a Representative Vendor in two Gartner Market Guide reports– Multipersona DSML Platforms and DSML Engineering Platforms.
