HMS Analytical Software GmbH

HMS Analytical Software GmbH The early HMS was founded as a society for applied statistics and programming to develop customized analytical applications using proprietary and open statistical packages. The combination of software engineering and statistics made HMS successful and unique. Over the years, HMS partnered with SAS and Microsoft to further evolve as an analytic and business intelligence systems integrator company. Nowadays HMS has become a professional full-service solution provider in data science and is enabling highly-specialized business processes in certain industries by means of data analysis and appropriate IT systems. SAS ON AZURE Having a cloud strategy is crucial for most enterprise companies. Enterprise Clients use SAS Platforms on-premise, but see the potential to move the SAS platform to the cloud. But SAS on Azure is not just running Virtual Machines in the cloud. A common requirement is the integration of SAS with Azure Services and third party services (which have been e.g. also used on-prem). That means the SAS platform needs to be adapted to the cloud in terms of scalability, performance, usability, security, and so on. HMS is bridging the gap between SAS and Microsoft. HMS is a Gold SAS Partner and a Gold Partner Microsoft for Cloud, Data Analytics and ISV. That means we are certified and capable to consult and support both technologies. HMS supported and currently support clients with a lift and shift of SAS to Azure in different industries such as Manufacturing, Finance, Insurance and Life Sciences. In a nutshell we are supporting from Evaluation, Differentiation, Sizing, Cost Assumptions, PoC, Installation, Configuration and Integration of SAS on Azure.
