SAS Visual Analytics 6.4 begins shipping today.
Having just shipped VA 6.3 in December, this was a very short development cycle for us, so the new feature list isn't huge. However, we didn't want to make customers wait until our fall release for a few key features that we felt were important.
SAS Visual Analytics has always been about big data. SAS Visual Analytics version 6.4 gives customers an easier way to import data from more than 15 data sources, including two variants of Hadoop (Cloudera and Hortonworks), Aster, DB2, Greenplum, MySQL, Netezza, ODBC, PostgreSQL, SAP HANA, Microsoft SQL Server, Salesforce, Teradata and Vertica (Oracle was supported in version 6.3). These data importers are available not only in VA Administrator and Visual Data Builder, but also to VA Explorer and VA Designer if the site administrator chooses to make the available.
Here's a couple of other lists of additions:
