Big Data, Analytics and Hadoop, How the marriage of SAS and Hadoop delivers better answers to business questions – faster

July 1, 2014

It’s the perfect arranged marriage: a low-cost, distributed data storage and processing platform, coupled with strong analytics to make sense of it all. Hadoop is an open-source software framework for storing and processing huge data sets on a large cluster of commodity hardware. Hadoop delivers distributed processing power at a remarkably low cost, making it an effective complement to a traditional enterprise data infrastructure. SAS brings data discovery and advanced analytics to the relationship. Both are faster with in-memory processing and more accessible with either an interactive programming or graphical user interface – your choice, depending on your role, skills and preference.
