Pivotal (formerly EMC Greenplum) and SAS
Delivering big data performance, scale and agility to SAS® users
SAS and Pivotal are strategically partnered to deliver agile analytics so organizations can build rapidly on deep insights, create competitive advantage and become truly data-driven. The partnership combines engineering know-how to offer flexible architectures to meet growing data demands with the combination of SAS Analytics, Pivotal's massively parallel database and flexible hardware options. Using HAWQ, a powerful query engine with the parallel database technology of Pivotal Analytic Database for analyzing massive amounts of data in Hadoop with standard SQL, the scalability and performance are leading-edge.
SAS and Pivotal offer several paths to analytic modernization, depending on the organization's needs and analytic maturity.
"Analyzing massive amounts of big data quickly to get at answers that increase agility – an organization's ability to sense change and respond – and drive time-sensitive business decisions is a competitive differentiator in today's market. Customers will gain from Pivotal's deep understanding of massively parallel processing architecture combined with SAS' deep expertise in analytics. Pivotal's strategic alliance with SAS gives our mutual customers integrated tools that allow them to capitalize on the big data opportunity, with confidence of knowing that our joint solutions have been pretested by our world-class engineering teams.

SAS/ACCESS Interface to Pivotal is an out-of-the-box solution that provides direct connectivity between SAS and Pivotal Analytic Database appliances, going beyond ODBC's standard interfacing capabilities. Pivotal Data Computing Appliance manages, stores and facilitates the analysis of petabytes of data. Users can take advantage of Pivotal's "shared-nothing" MPP (massively parallel processing) architecture, high-performance parallel dataflow engine and advanced gNet interconnect technology for increased scalability.
SAS Scoring Accelerator for Pivotal combines the statistical transformation and modeling methods available in SAS® Enterprise Miner™ with the scalability and in-database processing speed of the Pivotal Analytic Database to dramatically accelerate the model deployment process.
SAS on Pivotal HD™ addresses the complexity and implementation costs of Hadoop by enhancing it with the expressive power of structured query language (SQL). The combination accelerates deployment, data exploration, model development and application development, while increasing overall information availability.
While data continues to grow, decision makers need answers faster than ever. SAS High-Performance Analytics on Pivotal is an in-memory solution that allows you to develop analytical models using complete data, not just a subset or aggregate. You can develop models that use thousands of variables and millions of documents to produce more accurate and timely insights.
With models that can run in minutes or secords, you can perform more frequent modeling iterations and use sophisticated analytics to get answers to questions you never thought of or had time to ask.
SAS Visual Analytics on Pivotal helps you explore all relevant data quickly and easily no matter the size of the organization – or the data. Now you can look at more options, uncover hidden opportunities, identify key relationships and make more precise decisions to drive success faster than ever before. Self-service, ad hoc visual data discovery and exploration put lightning-fast insights within everyone's reach.
Pivotal is building a new platform for a new era, setting the standard for Enterprise Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). The company's mission is to enable customers to build a new class of applications, leveraging big and fast data, doing all of this with the power of cloud independence.
Uniting selected technology, people and programs from EMC and VMware, the following products and services are now part of Pivotal: Greenplum®, Cloud Foundry, Spring, Cetas, Pivotal Labs®, GemFire® and other products from the VMware vFabric™ Suite.
