Initiatives

Analytic Modernization: Increase Your Predictive Power
With the exponential increase in data coming in every format and from every direction, pairing the right analytics platform with a powerful architecture is critical to analytics success. The result is optimal efficiency, innovative processing and the power to reshape your IT infrastructure to fit the modern world. For example, see how we're working with energy companies. Then, learn how to start down the path to modernization, no matter where you are in your journey.

Internet of Things: Make Better Use of IoT Data
To make the most of IoT data collected from sensors, systems and products requires the ability to leverage analytics throughout the IoT infrastructure – from the data center or cloud all the way to the edge, and any point in between. Together, SAS and Intel deliver a full suite of analytics capabilities, end-to-end security, and integration with storage platforms like Hadoop and traditional data warehouses. The result is a full-fledged IoT solution designed for easy implementation and maximum impact for a variety of industries, including industrial IoT for manufacturing.

Managed Analytics Service Providers (MASP): Analytics On Demand
MASPs bundle SAS analytic solutions into turnkey, cloud-based solutions that limit the need for additional personnel and lower risks associated with deploying new infrastructure. This enables customers to implement analytics solutions on demand, in flexible ways that best fit their individual needs and those of their own end users. Working together, SAS and Intel enable MASPs to increase their predictive power by delivering faster, more powerful business analytics to organizations of all sizes.

Artificial Intelligence: Embedded into the SAS platform, propelled by Intel processing power
Today, artificial intelligence (AI) is analytics. Putting AI to work requires deep capabilities in constantly evolving analytics technologies – machine learning, deep learning, computer vision, natural language, you name it. It also requires massive processing power, especially given the rise of the Internet of Things and the torrent of data it has unleashed. So it may come as no surprise that together, SAS and Intel are leading the way on AI. While SAS continues to embed powerful technologies into its platform, Intel is driving major advances in the processing capabilities required to make sense of all that valuable data. The result? Integrated processing power and world-class artificial intelligence capabilities for smarter organizations and stronger outcomes.

Omnichannel Analytics: Engage Customers with Confidence
Together, SAS and Intel help companies engage customers at every step of the customer journey through high-performance tools that speed time to insight for better decision making and real-time responsiveness. This deep customer knowledge allows companies to forge tighter connections with customers through more effective marketing, as well as improve business decisions. Here's a solution brief about Omnichannel Analytics at work in retail.
