The SAS and Teradata solution will allow NBAD to better focus resources on the right customers, while nurturing growth of relationships with influential clients.

Those elements include SAS Enterprise BI Server, SAS Enterprise Data Integration Server, SAS Profitability Management and SAS Activity-Based Management – all executed within the Teradata data warehouse.

“In today’s post-crisis environment, businesses are realizing the growing importance of getting closer to their customers. NBAD is harnessing its data to gain a reliable, comprehensive view of all business units and branches. Rapidly identifying opportunities and risks across the organization will help the bank address customer needs and enable customers to make smart decisions,” said Mikael Hagstrom, Executive Vice President of SAS Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.
