Data preparation for analytics is difficult when information is scattered across different platforms, and data volumes are expanding faster than companies can keep up. This complicates the effort to gather, cleanse and transform data for a holistic view for decision making and analysis. Instead, most of your time is probably spent on data preparation, not analytics, leading to dela...ys in making critical, time-sensitive decisions. Not being able to analyze all your data can lead to missed opportunities, increased risks and falling behind your competitors.
The SAS and Cloudera strategic partnership offers enterprises compelling solutions to address these challenges. With SAS and Cloudera, you can run market-leading analytical systems such as SAS Visual Analytics or SAS Data Loader for Hadoop natively on your enterprise data hub, powered by Apache Hadoop, and can use SAS/ACCESS* to connect your Cloudera-powered data sources to SAS applications.
