SAS Strikes Big-Data Deal With Silicon Valley Firm
Cary-based SAS is teaming up with Palo Alto, Calif.-based Hortonworks to strengthen its big data powers.
Specifically, the alliance expands SAS’ capabilities on Apache Hadoop. The combination of SAS analytics and the Hortonworks data platform will help organizations better incorporate Hadoop as a component to their modern data architecture.
