Cloudera and SAS are partnering to help enterprises manage Hadoop-based structured and unstructured data using SAS’ data management and analytics tools.
The alliance aims to integrate SAS offerings with Hadoop open source software and parallel architecture, Cloudera said Monday.
SAS intends for its customers to connect to big data repositories powered by Cloudera and for business analysts to make queries on Hadoop without additional training.
The companies also plan to start research and development projects aimed to further integrate big data analytics with Hadoop for businesses.
“SAS and Cloudera share a common vision of delivering access to more data across the enterprise, and we look forward to the benefits our alliance relationship will bring to companies worldwide,” said Tim Stevens, Cloudera vice president for business and corporate development.
Also, SAS will help Cloudera University train Hadoop developers, administrators and data scientists
