Research announcement for analytics in the cloud


Talk about a collision, what can be more hyped now than analytics and the cloud - unless you throw in "big data," and well, quite honestly, that's related too!

SAS co-sponsored research on predictive analytics in the cloud with James Taylor and Decision Management Solutions. The research focused on the intersection of predictive analytics and cloud technology and the associated challenges and opportunities.

This research is not limited to using a software as a service model for analytics - it explores each of the following:

  • Cloud-based deployment of predictive analytics into SaaS applications.
  • Cloud-based deployment of predictive analytics to on-premise applications.
  • Using cloud-based data in modeling and pushing modeling to the cloud.

This is a critical topic for many of the organizations that we converse with today - whether they are considering deploying analytics in the cloud, designing an information management approach that spans data assets on premise and in the cloud (data integration, data quality, etc.), leveraging cloud-based concepts for internal architect initiatives, etc.

James has offered an early glimpse of those results and a webinar will be held on November 10th from 10 - 11:30 AM EST.

If you can't make the Webinar, you can still register for the results of the survey. Check back here for more commentary on the survey results.

The press release that announces the results is available here.
