“The data science world at the moment is fragmented: the old world, which is people building in SAS, and the new world, with open languages like Java. But this environment is collaborative, so you can [share code with] your teammates.”
I'm glad that IBM has finally caught up with "the old world"!
SAS Viya has allowed users to program in R, Python, Lua, Java and other API's, since its release way back in April last year (2016).
Don't confuse "old" with "wise".
