The power and scale of the cloud are used by more and more businesses for faster access to new functionality, reducing capital IT costs and improvement of the use of existing resources. SAS has therefore deployed its analytics into the cloud with the use of Amazon Web Services. This provides extra agility to users of for example SAS Visual Analytics. Big data and Hadoop initiatives can make a critical step forward with the advanced analytic capabilities SAS in the cloud offers.
