SAN DIEGO and LAS VEGAS (Oct. 25, 2010) - Knowing businesses today need a consistent and scalable analytic platform to help them quickly address customer demands and market changes, SAS, the leader in business analytics software and services, and Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the world's largest company solely focused on data warehousing and enterprise intelligence, have enhanced the SAS and Teradata Analytic Advantage Program. Four new capabilities will enable companies to get up and running with their analytic requirements in an environment that can quickly scale from exploratory analysis or prototyping of new ideas, to full development, deployment and management of analytic models and processes:
Availability of the
Teradata Analytic Sandbox Appliance
, which leverages Teradata's platform and unique self-service capabilities and components in the SAS® Predictive Analytics Suite (including SAS® Enterprise Miner™ and SAS® Scoring Accelerator for Teradata). This new appliance enables SAS and Teradata customers to easily create an independent analytic environment to perform accelerated, in-depth analyses prior to deployment in their production enterprise data warehouse.
- Integration of SAS® Rapid Predictive Modeler within the SAS and Teradata Analytic Advantage Program enables business analysts to expand their use of predictive analytics across the enterprise. Companies can generate predictive models in a quick, automated fashion and decrease the time needed to gain valuable insights from their data. Those models can be deployed using SAS Scoring Accelerator for Teradata, allowing them to be executed directly within the Teradata Analytic Sandbox Appliance or production environment, and managed by SAS® Model Manager.
- Extended service offerings from SAS and Teradata that include a proven methodology and implementation process to help customers quickly use the Teradata Analytic Sandbox Appliance or SAS Enterprise Miner (including SAS Rapid Predictive Modeler) to deploy an advanced analytic environment. The joint services portfolio is designed to support customers every step of the way in their analytic journey.
- Analytics on demand, a new hosted environment at SAS featuring the market-leading Teradata database gives customers the flexibility and agility to build and run their analytic models without technical limitations. Businesses can quickly start modeling on a hosted, shareable and scalable infrastructure specifically designed for the SAS and Teradata Analytic Advantage Program. This feature will be available in early 2011.
