Changes Coming to SAS Visual Analytics on Teradata University for Academics

With Adobe making the decision to retire Flash Player at the end of 2020 and some internet browsers already reducing support for Flash, SAS will no longer be able to provide access to SAS Visual Analytics and SAS Visual Statistics on Teradata University for Academics effective July 1, 2020. 

While educators and students can continue to access VA and VS on Teradata University through that date, SAS encourages faculty to start planning for this change now by checking out the company's newest free cloud-based offering for educators and students: SAS Viya for Learners
