SAS and Cloudera enable customers to achieve competitive advantage by gaining value from all of their data, through a proven combination of enterprise-ready storage, processing, analytics and management for big data.

Cloudera, the leader in Apache Hadoop-based software and services, offers a powerful new data platform that enables enterprises and organizations to look at all their data – structured as well as unstructured – and ask bigger questions for unprecedented insight at the speed of thought. By making all of your data usable, not just what's in your databases, SAS and Cloudera let you see relationships that were hidden before and reveal answers that have always been just out of reach. You can start making more decisions based on hard data instead of hunches and look at complete data sets, not just samples.

With the economic scalability to store and analyze data in Hadoop, SAS and Cloudera allow customers to reveal hidden insights that have loomed out of reach. Businesses can base more decisions on hard data instead of hunches, and look at complete data sets, not just samples. By providing a more visual and interactive Hadoop experience, SAS makes it easier to discover significant trends and insights. SAS’ strategy is to help customers manage their entire analytics life cycle, from data preparation and exploration, to modeling and deployment – on all the data.
