We distributed this release on Apr. 8th Friday, under an embargo, until April 11th Monday.
KT, the nation’s largest fixed-line operator and SAS Korea, a subsidiary of SAS Institute, the global data analysis provider, signed a memorandum of understanding to cooperate in the cloud sector, targeting the public and business-to-business (B2B) areas.
“We will provide world-class cloud infrastructure and services for our clients here to help them optimize their IT systems and increase business achievements by offering the KT Cloud infrastructure for SAS Analytics solutions.” KT’s corporate business division executive vice president Lee Moon-hwan said in a statement. “We will also solidify ties with domestic cloud system and service providers to establish an ecosystem for mutual growth in the information and communication technology market here.”
“Under the agreement, we will be able to provide the SAS analysis systems to the public and B2B sectors here while lessening our clients burdens on early investment for hardware infrastructure,” SAS Korea’s country manager Sam Cho said. “Based on our strengthening analysis solutions and experiences, we will support our clients to seek for business insights from data on the cloud network.”
SAS has provided analysis services designed for diverse use environments including private, public and hybrid cloud systems. In particular, the company has established partnerships with global public cloud venders to provide services to its clients such as Chinese IT company Lenovo.
KT, one of the leading providers of cloud infrastructure as a service in Korea, has newly established a cloud data center in Los Angeles recently ― a first for a Korean company ― to expand its cloud service capacity.
