SAP & SAS
SAP and SAS are leaders in our respective markets for in-memory platforms, advanced analytics and business applications. Our collaboration harnesses the power of combined platforms, while reducing or even eliminating data movement, duplication and reconciliation. It also allows massive parallelization of computation-heavy workloads – all in-memory – resulting in big data solutions not possible before.
SAS Technology Program
Combining the power of the SAP HANA platform with SAS advanced analytics applications is the first wave of innovation we plan to deliver to our joint customers.
Bill McDermott, Chief Executive Officer, SAP AG
Decision makers and data scientists alike get added value from real-time data analysis within their existing SAS® and SAP HANA environments. Our collaboration incorporates the SAP HANA in-memory platform into industry-specific applications and enables SAS advanced analytics algorithms to run in SAP HANA. And the SAS Predictive Modeling Workbench for SAP HANA integrates our industry-leading analytics with the SAP HANA platform to simplify and accelerate the predictive modeling life cycle. SAS offers solutions leveraging SAP HANA in areas such as marketing, quality, asset maintenance and risk, targeted to industries including manufacturing, retail, financial services and energy.
Big Data Analytics
We've integrated industry-leading SAS Analytics with the SAP HANA platform to speed up the entire analytical life cycle – from preparing and exploring data to developing, deploying and monitoring models. Pushing analytic processing closer to the data helps you extract valuable insights fast. Need big data analytics to solve complex problems quickly? In-memory analytics capabilities are available as an add-on.
“The partnership of SAS, the market-leading advanced analytics provider, with SAP will simplify big data and analytics efforts by reducing data movement and allowing faster decision making,” said Henry Morris, Senior VP of Worldwide Software and Services Research, IDC.
Internet of Things
Many organizations are already feeling overwhelmed by the increasing amounts of data that require storage and analysis. There’s a legitimate concern that the Internet of Things will only compound that challenge. Luckily, the increase in computing power and the advent of in-memory and high-performance computing, combined with advanced analytics, are trends that have prepared businesses for what lies ahead.
SAS with SAP HANA is at the forefront of delivering the entire range of capabilities you need. From data integration and analytics to optimization and reporting, you can create a true picture of what has happened and transform it, with analytic and predictive capabilities, into what will happen. The Internet of Things will affect us all. These are just some of the technologies SAS provides with SAP HANA that can help you benefit from a totally connected world:
- Accurately predict events that could cause outages, degrade performance or sabotage your production goals with SAS® Asset Performance Analytics.
- Detect emerging issues sooner, find root causes faster, and take months off your detection-to-correction times with SAS® Field Quality Analytics.
- Provide repeatable and defensible load forecasts for planning horizons that range from short-term to long-term with SAS® Energy Forecasting.

With campaign management running on top of this powerful data platform, you can push more campaigns out the door faster, coordinate activities across all marketing channels, have a single data platform on which to operate, and make better marketing decisions faster.

Whether reading data directly from SAP transactional tables, or interacting with SAP BW cubes, SAS has provided unparalleled capability to connect to and work with SAP-based data. SAS® Data Surveyor for SAP quickly and easily integrates SAP data into SAS® for analysis and reporting. And with the addition of SAS/ACCESS® Interface to SAP HANA, data analysts and business users alike can take advantage of this powerful new environment.
