SAS® and Cloudera Analytics at Scale and Speed

Online Webinar | Wednesday, May 7, 2014 | 10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm ET

The combination of SAS analytics and Cloudera’s enterprise data hub (EDH) is a common recipe for Analytics at Scale. While Cloudera’s EDH makes it not only feasible but economically viable to store and manage extreme volumes of data in one place, SAS’ In-Memory Analytics gives you the power to analyze and mine data at Scale … all on a single system. With SAS’ In-Memory Statistics for Hadoop and supporting products, business users can use their existing SAS skills to analyze and mine vast volumes of data on the EDH.

In this webinar we will cover:

  • SAS and Cloudera technical integration
  • An introduction to Cloudera's enterprise data hub
  • How SAS builds on the enterprise data hub
  • SAS® In-Memory Statistics for Hadoop, machine learning capabilities
