Long time coming
SAS is methodical and started talking to customers about Visual Statistics more than a year ago. Lots of feedback went into it, so it's NOT a leightweight tool that only does a fraction of what data wonks are used to doing with more traditional tools, according to SAS. Visual Analytics is basically SAS's answer to Qliktech and Tableau, but now it has a Visual Statistics sibling that can drive analyses deeply into predictive analytics and optimization work.
