Make better decisions faster with SAS

Continuous Data Integration

SAS Continuous Data Integration enables financial institutions to transform, enrich and re-format data in real-time. This enables faster, more accurate decision making on the trading desk and for risk managers.

Financial institutions rely on accurate and timely data to remain competitive. At SAS we ensure that data sources are consolidated across different feeds, at different latencies, in different formats - all from different systems.

Managing Different Data

The SAS Continuous Data Integration solution uses Event Stream Analytics to process and consolidate data with different classifications and taxonomies and deal with incomplete data.

SAS supports the Event Stream Analysis of data, with the capability to transform, enrich, or re-format data in real time.

This is a completely different way of working with real time data, and avoids the need to consolidate the different data sources in a database. It is simpler to design, and means that the transformed, aggregated streams of data can not only be viewed but also acted upon in real-time.

Event Stream Analysis

Financial institutions' ability to aggregate global data and take snapshots of their risk position is essential not only in extreme scenarios but also for risk events that occur every day. Event Stream Analytics simultaneously gathers and analyses data within seconds, enabling faster and better-informed risk management and trading decisions.
