SAS will work with the Australian Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations to implement a big data analytics tool for the government to manage and analyze large volumes of data.
DEEWR selected the SAS Visual Analytics service, which works to transmit data to a memory storage platform and help users perform analytic correlations, SAS said Thursday.
“Government departments have to deal with large volumes of data, often located in disparate silos,” said David Bowie, managing director of SAS Australia and New Zealand.
The platform is designed to present the results via Web applications and mobile devices.
“Using SAS Visual Analytics, government teams can access data regardless of location and platform,” Bowie said.
Susan Monkley, CIO at DEEW, said the agency aims for the analytics tool to discover trends from various data sources and further its policy development.
