SAS: Realize Your Big Data Aspirations with MapR and SAS
Combine SAS World-Class Analytic Strength with the MapR Distribution
SAS and the MapR Distribution including Apache Hadoop are natural complements. Despite the many technical nuances between various Apache subprojects and Hadoop-based capabilities, SAS support for Hadoop can be boiled down to two simple ideas: Hadoop data can be leveraged using SAS; and the power of SAS Analytics has been extended to Hadoop. By partnering with the market-leading MapR Distribution for Hadoop, SAS applications can now liberate the information gems you seek from the big data tsunami sweeping through your organization.
Access, Load, Process, Visualize and Analyze Data with SAS and MapR
Data stored in MapR clusters can be consumed across the SAS software stack in a transparent fashion. This means that analytic tools already in place (such as SAS Enterprise MinerTM), tools relating to data management (such as SAS Data Integration Studio), and foundation tools (such as Base SAS) can be used to work with Hadoop data.
