Featured Partner


For more than 30 years, SAS and IBM have collaborated to offer highly optimized solutions to more than 2,400 customers worldwide and recently renewed the SAS IBM Alliance agreement through 2015. The release of the SAS® Scoring Accelerator for DB2 marks a key milestone in that relationship.


IBM’s acquisition of both Netezza and Platform Computing underscores the growing interest in technologies for in-database, grid and high-performance computing. SAS will continue to partner with IBM from an R&D and sales perspective to support customer engagements.
