SAS & Partner

SAS and Hortonworks combine powerful, innovative capabilities to provide actionable intelligence from all data – in motion and at rest. By integrating SAS® Business Analytics software with Hortonworks solutions, organizations are able to query big data stored in Hadoop® with Hortonworks Data Platform, and govern it in motion with Hortonworks DataFlow. Now, SAS customers can quickly and easily incorporate these solutions and run analytics across massive data sets.

Single View of the Customer
Previously, businesses built legacy data systems with a one-to-one relationship between the end application and storage platform. Now, Hortonworks Data Platform and SAS® Analytics can help create a single view of the data, and uncover value that might have been within reach, but scattered across multiple interactions, channels, groups and platforms. For example, manufacturers focus on transforming data into quality products and efficient processes. Retailers need to adjust quickly to changing landscapes and new competition. To address these changes, retailers are now collecting massive amounts of data to gather deeper insights into their business.
