Recommender System in SAS base

Are there any SAS procedures available in SAS Base 9.4 for Recommender System. There is one procedure called 'proc recommend' but it is in SAS LASR Analytic Server.

No, that would fall in SAS Enterprise Miner. 

 

Also, a recommender system is a vague term for a predictive model. It could be a regression model or proc discrim so it's not quite that straight forward. These are available in Base SAS.

 Some of the more complex methods such as neural networks or decision trees or ensemble models are in EM.

"...but it is in SAS LASR Analytic Server"

Well, SAS is module/product based. You can't expect to have all functionality in Base SAS - then it would be super expensive...

 

What is your use case?

Couldn't a LASR implementation be in line with your needs?

Thanks for the suggestion but LASR implementation would again cost.

I want to predict products which customers might like/buy using SAS base.

Yesterday, I found clusters procedure and currently trying to utilize the same, but I dont know how far I can go with it.

Just out of curiosity could you please tell me, in which context you wrote "data never sleeps"

Look up Market Basket Analysis

If you google it, you should find a SAS base macro to implement.
