SAS Rapid Predictive Modeler models are easy to deploy into scoring systems. The models are saved as Base SAS
code that can be executed on any Base SAS installation. You can register the models to the SAS Metadata Server
for direct use in other products such as SAS Enterprise Guide, SAS® Data Integration Studio, and SAS Model
Manager. These products can automate the execution of score code and the deployment to other systems. SAS
Rapid Predictive Modeler score code is also fully compatible with the SAS Scoring Accelerators for Teradata, Aster,
Netezza, and DB2.
SAS Rapid Predictive Modeler models are compatible with SAS Enterprise Miner. In fact, the models are built using
the functions of SAS Enterprise Miner. Models can be opened as projects and diagrams inside SAS Enterprise Miner
for investigations into diagnostics, behaviors, and alternatives. SAS Rapid Predictive Modeler and Enterprise Miner
users can collaborate on projects to produce the best model for each target. SAS Rapid Predictive Modeler models
can also be executed later using the batch processing facility of SAS Enterprise Miner. 1 SAS Global Forum 2010 Customer Intelligence SAS Rapid Predictive Modeler builds the following models for standard data mining classification and regression
• Classification models predict the value of a discrete variable such as True or False; High, Medium, or Low;
Purchase or Decline; and Churn or Continue. • Regression models predict the value of a real number variable such as Revenue, Sales, or Success Rate. Creating models of last year’s sales receipts combined with demographics, credit ratings, and segmentation
strategies is called model training. You can save these models as SAS programs that can be used to predict values
on new input data in the absence of target data. These score code programs can be used in any Base SAS
environment. You can apply the score code to new data to make business decisions such as how much capacity to
build or which customers to select for special offers. This process is named model scoring. CHURN CLASSIFICATION EXAMPLE
SAS Rapid Predictive Modeler is best presented through an example analysis. Churn refers to the tendency of a
subscriber to switch providers; it is one of the most common problems faced globally in the telecommunication
industry. Reasons why a customer might churn include a competitive stimulation, unhappiness with service after the
sale, dissatisfaction with quality of services, a move to another location, or disconnection by the provider due to
account delinquency. The objective of this analysis is to build a classification model quickly and easily to measure the
propensity for an active customer to churn. This enables service agents to tak...
