Press Release
SAS High-Performance Analytics on Teradata appliance extends analytic innovation to customers.

Today, turning this data into intelligence and empowering stakeholders inside and outside the enterprise is the new competitive battlefield.

The big challenge facing companies today as they attempt to compete on analytics is that their data is scattered throughout the enterprise, increasing costs and time to analyze. The SAS and Teradata partnership will significantly reduce the cost, time and effort needed to integrate and analyze a company's data. This will give companies a competitive advantage by making the right decisions and getting to market earlier with world-class analytics."
