Today, companies are increasingly utilizing analytics to discover new revenue and cost saving opportunities. Many business professionals turn to SAS, a leader in business analytics software and service, to help them improve performance and make better decisions faster. Analytics are also being employed in risk management, fraud detection, life sciences, sports, and many more emerging markets. However, to maximize the value to the business, analytics solutions need to be deployed quickly and cost-effectively, while also providing the ability to readily scale without degrading performance. Of course, in today's demanding environments, where budgets are still shrinking and mandates to reduce carbon footprints are growing, the solution must deliver excellent hardware utilization, power efficiency, and ROI.
