Get the agility, accessibility and flexibility you need as part of your data virtualization strategy.
Govern views with unprecedented security.
Advanced data masking and encryption capabilities let you determine not only who’s authorized to view your data, but also what they see on an extremely granular level. It all helps ensure sensitive data doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.
Apply data quality functions on demand.
Since data quality should be at the forefront of any data-related tasks, SAS Federation Server enables you to apply data quality functions such as parsing, matching, and gender or identification analysis in real time as the view is generated.
Easily maintain data with centralized controls.
A centralized, web-based console makes it easy to graphically administer, monitor and maintain connections and data caches. And with shared metadata that spans your data management and analytics solutions, you can keep everyone in your organization on the same page.
Get consistent access to multiple data sources.
By providing a data virtualization layer, SAS Federation Server helps you access underlying data sources such as Hadoop, Netezza, SAP HANA, Hive and Impala. There's no need to create separate access strategies for each data source.
