In this time of massive data production, it's easy to become overwhelmed. Enter Hadoop – it's not just hype!

You've probably heard or read about SAS' early plans for Hadoop, including SAS/ACCESS® support for Hadoop. As of March 2012, it's official: SAS support for Hadoop is now available, and it's generating a lot of excitement. Our approach marries the power of SAS Analytics with Hadoop's ability to leverage commodity-based storage and perform distributed processing.

In this webinar, we’ll explore the technology behind how SAS both simplifies and augments Hadoop.
