To help organizations increase business performance while reducing the cost and complexity of business intelligence solutions in the datacenter, SAS will leverage Sun's IT infrastructure, including hardware, software and services, as part of the SAS Enterprise Intelligence Platform running on the open source Solaris operating system (OS). The architectures can run on virtually any of Suns award-winning hardware systems, from x64 servers to highly powerful compute-intensive servers.
Launching this initiative together, SAS and Sun spotlight the need to align IT with business needs, said Claudia Imhoff, President, Intelligent Solutions, Inc. IT determines how well an enterprise analytical platform can be built and utilized, which impacts how successfully a company can provide the accurate intelligence demanded in todays competitive environment.
