1 SAS VISUAL ANALYTICS AN OVERVIEW OF POWERFUL DISCOVERY, ANALYSIS AND REPORTING
2 WELCOME TO SAS VISUAL ANALYTICS SAS Visual Analytics is a high-performance, in-memory solution for exploring massive amounts of data very quickly. It enables you to spot patterns, identify opportunities for further analysis and convey visual results via Web reports or a mobile platform such as the ipad. This presentation is a very brief overview of the many features and capabilities of SAS Visual Analytics. It is meant to get you started quickly, with a relatively modest data set example (only 3.5 million rows). For more in-depth information, you can consult the online User Guide, available via the Help menu, or go to the website at

4 OVERVIEW OF THE DATA Insight Toy Company is an organization that produces and sells toys. The data is made up of 14 years of Financial, Manufacturing and Sales & Marketing information, with 127 facilities across the world: Financial: product sales, cost of sales, gross margin; Manufacturing: unit capacity, reliability, lifespan, etc; Sales & Marketing: sales representative, sales rep rating, customer satisfaction, customer distance, etc. The data source is made up of 3.5 million rows and 60 columns NOTE: a complete data dictionary is available at the end of this document
5 GETTING STARTED IN SAS VISUAL ANALYTICS THE ESSENTIALS The toolbar enables you to select your visual explorations and visualizations. The data pane lists the available categories and measures in your selected data. The right pane contains tabs that enable you to change the properties of your visualizations, filter the data and create and view comments. The workspace displays your visualizations For more information, please consult the SAS Visual Analytics User Guide, available under the Help menu.
6 BAR CHART THE BASICS STEP 1: starting with a blank workspace, select Bar Chart from the toolbar. STEP 2: Drag and drop Facility Continent, Unit Yield Rate and Facility Efficiency on the workspace. Note: you can select multiple items by holding the CTRL key. In order to explore this in more detail, we will need to create a hierarchy that will allow us to dig deeper and focus our analysis.
7 BAR CHART ADD A HIERARCHY Let s add more investigative functionality to this bar chart by creating a drill-down path. STEP 1: From the Data tab, select New Hierarchy. STEP 2: Name it Facility Hierarchy. Select Facility Continent, Facility Country, Facility City and Facility (in that order).
8 USING A HIERARCHY Drag the new Facility Hierarchy from the Data Pane and drop it on Facility Continent. The new hierarchy has replaced the single-level Facility Continent element. Notice that the appearance of the chart does not change, but a breadcrumb trail appears in the upper left of the chart. Double-click on North America to explore further.
9 EXPLORING A HIERARCHY Here you can see that Mexico has a much lower Unit Yield Rate and lower Facility Efficiency than the U.S. or Canada. Notice the breadcrumb trail highlighted in the upper left. You can continue to drilldown and gain even more insight. Double-click on Mexico.
10 CREATING A HIERARCHY The Hierarchy was created on the fly, without the need to ask our IT department to create a special data structure, and is IMMEDIATELY applicable to all your data, usable for explorations and reports. Further, you can easily edit the hierarchy to drill down, from facilities, to Products, Units, Sales Representatives, etc. Return to Table of Content
11 FILTERS Filters are an easy way to subset the data, allowing you to focus on a specific area. There are two types of filters: Local filters affect only the current visualization, while Global filters affect all visualizations currently opened. Let s create a simple visualization to practice Filters: STEP 1: starting with a blank workspace, select Bar Chart from the toolbar. STEP 2: Drag and drop Products Hierarchy and Product Sale on the workspace.
12 FILTERS - BASICS Let s focus on 2012 only. STEP 1: Drag and drop the Transaction Year field to the filter tab. Put it in the Local Filters section. STEP 2: simply drag the left arrow to subset the data to 2012 only.. Insight: notice how SAS Visual Analytics automatically lets us know the general distribution of the data?
13 FILTERS SELECT AND INCLUDE Let s look at all our Product lines, except Puzzle 3D and Card Games. STEP 1: You can select specific items in your visualization (holding the CTRL key), or you can use the mouse to lasso around multiple items. STEP 2: Now right-click and select Exclude Selection. A new filter is added
14 FILTERS - ADVANCED Filters behave differently depending if they are a numerical measure or a category. Options allow you to edit a filter, to refine it even more, with various conditions and operators, to make it as sophisticated as you need. Insight: every time you apply filters, SAS Visual Analytics tells you how much of the data you are looking at. Return to Table of Content
15 CALCULATIONS SAS Visual Analytics allows you to create on-the-fly calculations on all your data. To create a new calculation, simply select New Calculated Item from the Data menu.
16 CALCULATIONS - CREATING This is the name of the calculated item. It will appear as a data item in the data pane, available for visualizations. These are the various data elements that you can use in a calculation. These are the various functions and operators that can be used to create your formula. To create (or edit) a calculation, simply: STEP 1: build the structure of your calculation: drag and drop the operator(s) you want on the main window; STEP 2: drag and drop the data element inside the calculation structure. You can specify how the results of your calculations will be aggregated and formatted.
17 CALCULATIONS EDITING Two calculations have already been created for you in the Insight Toy Company sample data: Gross Margin, and Gross Margin Ratio. To view how these calculations were created or modify them, simply select one, right-click and select Edit. Note that it is possible to use the result of a calculation in another calculation. Return to Table of Content
18 GEOGRAPHIES In SAS Visual Analytics, any category field can be designated as a Geography. You might assign a geography to a predefined geographic role (such as country name), or create a customized geography data item to identify geographic information that is specific to your organization (for example, sales regions, warehouse locations, oil platforms, and so on). For the purpose of Insight Toy Company, we have already designated the following fields as Geographic locations: Further, we have already created one hierarchy, to explore data from continent, to country, region and city.
19 ANALYZING GEOGRAPHIES If you have any visualization opened, minimize them, to start from a blank workspace. Select Geography Hierarchy and hold the CTRL key to select Product Sale. Simply drag and drop them on the workspace. Because the category selected has been pre-defined as a geography item, SAS Visual Analytics will automatically offer us a Map visual.
20 ANALYZING GEOGRAPHIES Since you used a hierarchy, you can drill down on it: double-click on the North America and then on the USA bubbles. You can also add another measure. In this case here, by dragging and dropping Gross Margin Ratio, you are able to see revenue of each region (the size of the bubbles) as well as their relative Gross Margin contribution (the color of the bubbles). Insight: notice how it is clear that, while the majority of our revenues in the USA comes from the Western and Northern regions (bubble size), clearly the average Gross Margin (bubble color) is better in the Southeast.
21 REFINING GEOGRAPHIES Geographies can be used for all kinds of visualizations. For example here, we are looking at Average Customer Distance to our facility (color of the bubbles), and the revenue generated from each customer (size of the bubbles). The center (where all bubbles are blue) represents where our facility is located. Notice how there doesn t seem to be a correlation between proximity to our facility, and how much a customer is spending with us? Return to Table of Content
22 CROSSTAB GETTING STARTED A crosstab shows the intersections of category values and measure values. STEP 1: starting with a blank workspace, select Crosstab from the toolbar. This creates a blank Crosstab palette. Notice the Roles tab on the right. Each element can have multiple categories or measures.
23 CROSSTAB GETTING STARTED From the Data tab, select Facility Country and drop it on the Columns box. Select Product Line and drop it on the Rows box. Select Product Material Cost and drop it on the Measures box. Now you have a Crosstab that shows aggregated Product Material Costs for each Product Line by Facility Country.
24 CROSSTAB ADDING DEPTH Lets add more depth to the Crosstab. Select Product Make and drop it on the Rows box. Select Product Sale and drop it on the Measures box. Now you have multiple rows and columns of aggregated product financial data, in seconds. It is easy to add or replace elements in this manner.
25 CROSSTAB DRILL DOWN WITH HIERARCHIES Lets create a new crosstab. Simply minimize the one you were working with, and start a new one. This time, select Geography Hierarchy as your Columns, and Products Hierarchy as your Rows. Select Product Sale as your Measure. Notice how, because we are now using Hierarchies, we can drill down or expand on any row or column? You can read more about hierarchies here.
26 CROSSTAB CREATING TOTALS Select the Properties tab on the right pane. You can turn on Column subtotals and totals You can turn on Row subtotals and totals. You place these before or after the corresponding data item. You can also rename the Visualization to something more meaningful than the default Visualization 1. Return to Table of Content
27 FORECAST GETTING STARTED Minimize any open visualizations, to start with a blank workspace. Click on Analysis then select Forecast. It will then bring up the forecast function. For the Date Category, select Transaction Month.
28 FORECAST PRODUCT SALE & PRODUCT COST OF SALE Select Product Cost of Sale and Product Sale. You can also change how many intervals you wish to forecast into the future. Since we are dealing with months here, this will create a forecast for 6 months.
29 FORECAST CREATED The forecast function created a line chart, forecasting our Product Sale and Cost of Sale for six months. Now let s refine our forecast by adding a filter based on Product lines and look at forecasts for specific products.
30 FORECAST FILTERS Let s drag and drop the Products Line field to the filters tab, so we can create different forecasts for each product line. Here we selected the Kiosk product line. You can find more information on filters here. You can also click the Info button to find out what forecast algorithm was used.
31 FORECASTING PROPERTIES You can have the markers plotted to see the markers more clearly. Simply check the Show Markers Radio Button under Properties. If you mouse over date values it will show you specific data ticks for a date. In this view we moused over Jan2013.
32 EXPORTING AND USING THE FORECAST DATA If you hover your mouse over the upper right corner of any visualization, you will see an icon appear. Clicking this icon shows the Table View (see bottom of the screen) the data that is currently feeding your visualization. This is the data that will be exported if you right-click on your visualization and select Export Data. Return to Table of Content
33 TREEMAPS GETTING STARTED STEP 1: starting with a blank workspace, select Treemap from the toolbar. STEP 2: Drag and drop Products Hierarchy on the Treemap workspace.
34 TREEMAPS GETTING STARTED This gives you a Treemap of the highest level of the hierarchy (Product Brands) and defaults to the frequency (i.e. how many rows of data) for each product brand. In order to get a more insightful chart, you need to add data elements from the Data pane. For this exercise, drag and drop Product Sale and Gross Margin Ratio.
35 EXPLORING TREEMAPS Since you started with a Hierarchy, you can simply drilldown on any rectangles by double-clicking on it. Notice as well the breadcrumb at the top that indicates where you currently are exploring in the hierarchy tree. Now you can quickly see comparatively speaking which product group has the best relative gross margin (in blue) compared to other groups that have the same level of revenues (size of the rectangle).
36 TREEMAPS MORE EXPLORATION Using the mouse as a lasso to highlight multiple boxes, or by holding the CTRL key, you can select multiple boxes, and, using a right-click menu, include (or exclude) them from your selection, in effect creating a filter. Return to Table of Content
37 HEAT MAPS GETTING STARTED STEP 1: starting with a blank workspace, select Heat Map from the toolbar. STEP 2: Select Facility Country, Product Quality and Unit Reliability from the Data tab with CTRL-click. Drag and drop them onto the Heat Map workspace.
38 HEAT MAPS GETTING STARTED You now have a Heat Map of Unit Reliability by Facility Country and Product Quality. It would seem that, across all countries, lower product quality and lower unit reliability are related. Lets change the presentation somewhat to get a better sense of this.
39 HEAT MAPS ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE Lets get a different view of this relationship. On the Roles tab, drag Unit Reliability from the Color element and drop it on the Y axis element. In effect, swapping Product Quality and Unit Reliability. Notice how the map has drastically changed? Now we see the same information, but from a different, potentially more meaningful perspective.
40 HEAT MAPS DRILLING DEEPER Lets take a deeper dive into areas with the lowest Unit Reliability and Product Quality. Lasso these areas with the mouse by holding the button and selecting the areas to be explored. Then, press the right mouse button to get the menu and select Include Only Selection. Notice the new filter in the Filters tab? We are now using 2% of the original data.
41 HEAT MAPS IDENTIFYING PROBLEM AREAS Lets dig deeper. Select Facility from the Data pane and drag and drop it over Facility Country. Now we have the same data, but at the individual facility level.
42 HEAT MAPS IDENTIFYING PROBLEM AREAS By zooming out, you can identify each manufacturing unit individually. To zoom out, simply select the horizontal scroll bar and drag to the left. Return to Table of Content
43 CORRELATIONS Minimize any open visualizations, to start with a blank workspace. Click on Analysis then select Correlate Measures. Click the first measure (Customer Distance), hold the SHIFT key and select the last measure. This should select all measure as shown in the screenshot. Click OK.
44 CORRELATION MATRIX Notice the intersection Customer Satisfaction and Sales Rep Rating. It has a strong Relationship of.9867 ( 1 being the strongest possible correlation). This implies they share a strong relationship. Double Click this intersection to explore it further.
45 CORRELATION REGRESSION There is a strong relationship between Customer Satisfaction and Sales Rep Rating. The color is represented as transaction frequency. Next, drag Gross Margin from the data pane to the Visual pane. This will overlay Gross Margin as the color instead of frequency.
46 CORRELATION WITH GROSS MARGIN As Customer Satisfaction is increasing, so too is Sales Rep Rating. This is good information. Notice however that some unsatisfied customers, serviced by some of our lesser rated sales representatives (bottom left), are also making us money (Gross Margins in blue). Interesting as well. We ll need to investigate.
47 CORRELATIONS - INVESTIGATING For now, let s focus on the highest Gross Margin transactions. Using the mouse as a lasso, highlight the bins top right in blue and white as seen in the screenshot. Right click on the highlighted transactions and select Include Only Selection. This will create an instant filter on our data.
48 SATISFIED AND PROFITABLE CUSTOMERS BUY WHICH PRODUCT? These are some of your most satisfied customer, providing you with your highest Gross Margins. But which products are they buying? Let s find out Drag Product Line into the pane and replace Customer satisfaction with Product Line.
49 GROSS MARGIN RATIO STAR PRODUCTS Our highest Gross Margins come from Plush Toy. Click the Bar Chart icon in the toolbar. The visualization will change to a Bar Chart. Drag Gross Margin Ratio over Sales Rep Rating. We can now see that Plush for Satisfied Customers has the highest Gross Margin and % contribution. More than double than any other product. Return to Table of Content
50 BOX PLOTS Box Plots are a very powerful way to derive multiple statistics about your data. A box plot represents the distribution of data values by using rectangular box and lines called whiskers. Outliers Maximum Value Q3 (75 th percentile) Median Mean Q1 (25 th percentile) Basically, this means that half of your data ends up in this range for the particular measure you are looking at. Minimum Value
51 BOX PLOTS USING THEM Minimize any open visualizations, to start with a blank workspace. Select Box Plot from the toolbar. Drag and drop one measure, and one category over the workspace. In this example, we have selected to look at the distribution of the Customer Distance, per Cities. Notice how we can immediately see the average distance that customers will travel to get to our stores, and that some of our facilities clearly cover a more vast region reaching customers much more further. Maybe we need to offer different marketing campaigns in those cities?
52 BOX PLOTS - REFINEMENT Here is another example. Here, you can immediately see your sale price distribution by Product Line. You can see that your Kiosk products are selling at the lowest prices, and that your Promo product have the widest distribution, going from zero (promotion gifts) all the way to 175 dollars. By further refining this visualization with filters, you will be able to quickly focus on any region, facility or sale representative that sells at a lower price than anyone else. Return to Table of Content
53 BUBBLE PLOTS GETTING STARTED STEP 1: starting with a blank workspace, select Bubble Plot from the toolbar. Please note that the Bubble Plot visualization is one of the more complex ones, as evidenced by the various field roles available.
54 BUBBLE PLOTS GETTING STARTED STEP 2: Assign a GROUP. The Group is important because it dictates how many elements can be displayed on the screen at one time. Here, we will drag and drop Products Hierarchy as our group.
55 BUBBLE PLOTS GETTING STARTED STEP 3: Now you can assign the rest of your data elements. For this visualization, you will assign: Sales Rep Rating for the X Axis Customer Satisfaction for the Y Axis Product Sales for the Bubble Size.
56 BUBBLE PLOTS EXPLORING Since you chose a Hierarchy as your Group, you will be able to drill-down to further explore your visualization by double-clicking on the bubbles. Notice the bread crumb trail that expands indicating your drill-down path. Also note that clearly, the more a sales representative is well rated, the more his/her customers seem satisfied. However, that seems independent of the actual sales revenue (the size of the bubble).
57 BUBBLE PLOTS REFINING Using your mouse as a lasso, you can select a few bubbles, Right- Click and select Include Only Selection, to create a filter on-thefly, and focus on just those items. See the Filters section for more info on filters.
58 BUBBLE PLOTS TIME ANIMATION Now, wouldn t it be interesting to see how that visualization evolves over time? You can: simply select Transaction Year and drag and drop it in the Animation role. Now you will be able to play the bubble plot, and see how things evolve over time. Return to Table of Content
