SAS Extends Support for Open Metadata with Meta Integration Technology

Originally published February 21, 2006

SAS, a provider in business intelligence, has entered into an agreement with Meta Integration Technology (MITI) to extend support for open metadata architecture by offering customers the option of bundling the full line of Meta Integration Model Bridges (MIMB) with SAS Data Integration software. Through Meta Integration Technology, SAS Data Integration customers will enjoy lower implementation costs and faster implementations, as database managers, designers and warehouse administrators may now integrate and manage metadata from a wider variety of sources.

With Meta Integration bridges, SAS enables users to exchange metadata freely between a range of products from different vendors, minimizing the risk and cost associated with maintaining a variety of software environments. Select Meta Integration bridges will be available at no additional cost, while the rest will be available through a licensing fee.

"The partnership between SAS and Meta Integration Technology brings added value and an innovative competitive advantage to customers," said Christian Bremeau, President and CEO of MITI. "The ability to import and export metadata leverages metadata for analysis, increases the value for business intelligence and enables better management decisions."
