SAS brings tool to Microsoft Fabric: translating AI into business outcomes

SAS Decision Builder combines AI models, rules, and logic in a workflow to help achieve better decisions.

SAS Decision Builder is a new Microsoft Fabric workload that streamlines the analytics lifecycle by helping companies design, integrate, and deploy models and decisions. The combination with Microsoft gives companies access to data in Fabric OneLake. Users can test, modify, and run decisions within the Fabric environment to anticipate market changes and meet business needs.

Microsoft launched Fabric last year, providing a foundation for enterprise data and AI applications. The platform brings together data and analytics tools. In this way, data and business professionals should better harness the potential of data and establish a good data foundation.

Tip: With Fabric, Microsoft aims for biggest launch since SQL Server


With SAS workloads on Fabric, business analysts and domain experts can access decision flows and design business logic in a low-code environment. They also gain access to machine learning and LLMs to manage and complete the decision lifecycle. In addition, there is insight into how rules are developed so users can follow data flows and understand how decisions are created.

The integration further extends Azure AI Services. SAS decision intelligence supports generative AI elements directly in a decision flow. Combining LLMs analysis capabilities with predictive AI expands the data pool. This allows for running scenarios, analysing outcomes, and delivering personalized customer experiences.

SAS Decision Builder is available as a private preview on Fabric effective immediately.
