SAS and the Hadoop Ecosystem
Research from The Bloor Group indicates that, at the current rate of adoption, Hadoop and its ecosystem will become dominant in the area of analytics and BI applications for the enterprise environment. This could constitute as much as one-third of enterprise IT in the near future. Despite the extensive and growing stack of capabilities in the Hadoop ecosystem, there are still significant gaps. Software companies like SAS are filling many of those gaps and dramatically improving its overall functionality for data management, data visualization and analytics activities. This paper covers the qualities of SAS® software and how it can enhance a Hadoop implementation.
