SAS Unveils New Software Bundle Program with Teradata

Originally published March 17, 2008

SAS, the leader in business intelligence and analytical software, recently announced that the two partners have reached significant technical and sales milestones, allowing joint customers to benefit from in-database analytics sooner than anticipated.  In addition, the two companies have launched a new program to prepackage select SAS software on Teradata managed servers within Teradata environments.

“Today’s businesses are challenged to manage huge data volumes while optimizing analytical model development and deployment environments,” said Dan Vesset, Program Vice President for Business Analytics Research at IDC. “In-database analytics enables IT and analysts to be more productive and responsive to the growing demand by business decision makers for analytics-based strategic and operational decision support. Today’s announcement shows that SAS and Teradata are closer to delivering on the promise of in-database analytics, which is to give customers a flexible, powerful means for implementing predictive analytics and information analysis in one location.”

Together, SAS and Teradata are enabling businesses to exploit SAS Analytics through the core parallel processing functionality inherent in Teradata’s architecture. The new SAS Scoring Accelerator for Teradata enables customers to translate scoring models created in SAS Enterprise Miner into Teradata-specific functions to be executed directly within the Teradata environment. The results – enhanced model-scoring performance and more analytic models processed – mean faster predictive results. In-database scoring improves accuracy of data analysis, reduces data movement and streamlines analytic processes, helping businesses with enterprise data warehouses deliver business intelligence quickly throughout the organization while maintaining data reliability and integrity.
