Data analytics firm SAS has unveiled an online portal that will provide businesses with resources to track information on COVID-19.

The COVID-19 Data Analytics Resource Hub allows users to check global insights, access learning options, read various articles and utilize analytics software and real-time COVID-19 data, the company said Tuesday.

Users may use the Data Discovery Environment tool to view detailed reports, dashboards and data from various organizations through the Viya framework.
