This will enable SAS customers scale up their marketing initiatives to create relevant, satisfying, valued customer experiences tailored to each unique customer's journey. The instance is the fifth for SAS in the world following the launches in US, Europe, Japan and Australia and signifies its commitment to its Indian customers.
The unique hybrid marketing architecture developed by SAS allows organizations to source & merge from both cloud-based digital data sources and on-premise traditional data sources into a single unified data model for customer engagement activities. This unique capability allows organizations to avoid costly and time-consuming effort of “lifting and shifting” data into marketing clouds. It also allows to secure and govern data in compliance with regional, federal, and local regulations. This gives customers the choice & flexibility to host their data to reside on their premises, private cloud/ data center or choose to host data on SAS India instance.
