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.
