DoD, SBA, CPSC Pick SAS Tools for Big Data Analytics, Management

SAS w-LogoSAS has been chosen by the U.S. Defense Department, Small Business Administration and Consumer Product Safety Commission to provide technology platforms that will work to help the agencies examine huge amounts of data.

The company said Monday agencies are increasingly adopting big data analytics, visualization, text mining and Hadoop technologies to help address their data collection, storage and management challenges.

“The challenge of gleaning insights from data-deluged government systems is clearly not going away,” noted Karen Terrell, vice president of SAS’ federal business.

“Forward-thinking agencies are attacking the challenge with data processing, analytics, open source and data visualization in powerful combinations tailored to their needs,” she added.

DoD has licensed SAS’ Visual Analytics and Grid Manager platforms to facilitate processing of the department’s logistics, inventory and maintenance data.

SBA chose the in-memory analytics tool for detailed examination of historical application and performance data from the agency’s loan programs.

CPSC aims to accelerate epidemiological research data processing with SAS’ Contextual Analysis platform.
