SAS Teams With SAP for Real-Time Analytics

Analytics specialist SAS is working with SAP and its in-memory HANA technology in order to offer real-time applications, including potentially for financial markets trading and risk use cases. Early offerings are due in the first half of 2014.

Ken Tsai, head of SAP HANA product marketing and vice president of technology innovation platforms at SAP, says: “Working with SAS is part of SAP’s initiative to reach out to independent software vendors and consider the possibility of running their apps on the SAP HANA platform. For SAP HANA to grow, we need to take on provocative alternatives to SAP apps.”

SAP is working with some software vendors that may compete with its own enterprise apps, but Tsai says SAS’s analytic apps have very little overlap with SAP’s and have been oriented to data science and computational work rather than the business markets addressed by SAP.

The collaboration is expected to enable massive parallelisation of computationally intense workloads in-memory. These could include pre-trade algo strategy building through to post-trade risk management.
