SAS recognised as ‘Best Analytics Platform’ in Data Management Awards
SAS, the global leader in business analytics, has been voted Best Analytics Platform in the market for the second year in a row by the readers of Reference Data Review, the leading publication on data management technology in capital markets, published by A-Team Group. The award was announced yesterday at the A-Team Data Management Summit 2014 in London, and recognises data management excellence in the capital markets industry.
A-Team Group canvassed its readership of capital markets professionals requesting they identify the best performing technologies in data management, including big data, reference data and risk management. The wide range of industry professionals that voted in the awards identified SAS® as the industry's best analytics platform. Using SAS, capital markets professionals can address the most complex business challenges involved in aggregating and stress testing risk exposures, identifying fraud and unauthorised trading, and managing to meet the strict capital requirements demanded by the new era of regulatory reform.
Mark Wilkinson, Managing Director at SAS UK & Ireland, commented: "With pressures of global compliance and trading transparency greater than ever, capital market participants require the most powerful data analytics to analyse masses of data in real-time to get an up-to-date view of risk across their organisation and root out fraud. Our high-performance big data analytics engine is powered to meet these challenges head on.
"We're delighted to receive this award which demonstrates our commitment to the capital markets community. I would like to thank all those who use our technology that voted for us, which is a great validation of our work and inspires us to continue developing tools that can make a real difference to capital markets participants across the globe."
