SAS, Amsio look to the cloud for quick, simple VA and VS deployment


SAS Partners now able to offer this solution to customers

saasnow-modelLooking for fast, easy-to-sell option for SAS Visual Analytics and Visual Statistics? SAS now has signed an agreement with cloud-hosting provider Amsio to create a cloud-based portal environment for VA and VS. With this new set-up, SAS partners can deploy either VA or VS in 30 minutes and under a month-to-month contract.

This makes VA and VS an easier sell, as it creates a smaller investment for customers and a shorter sales and deployment cycle. There is no cost for SAS partners, and can even be a low-cost option for setting up a proof-of-concept or demonstration.

Under this arrangement, customers can enjoy VA and VS on demand, an ideal solution for small and medium businesses. The cloud-based solution eliminates the need for internal IT investments and frees the client from long-term contracts and set-up fees.

“We recognized the need our channel partners have for delivering a competitive solution to the SMB market,” said Rob Spee, Director, SAS Global Channels. “Amsio has been a SAS partner for eight years and with more than a decade of hosting and cloud experience, they were an excellent option for us to bring a new, nimble VA/VS solution to customers through our partners.”

The solution is available to SAS partners worldwide. Amsio is able to guarantee that data stays in the country of chosen datacenter, in order to help manage data privacy concerns and regulations. Once deployed, SAS partners are able to provide customers with data preparation, consultancy, support and application management services.
