Samsung SDS, the IT service affiliate of Samsung Electronics, and US-based business analytics vendor SAS will offer their jointly-developed new big data analytics solutions, the companies have announced.
Their analytics system uses SAS Enterprise Minor and SAS IN-Database and Samsung SDS's Brightics, its self-developed analytic platform.
The MOU will allow the two to combine SAS's know-how in servicing 80,000 clients in government and enterprise worldwide and Samsung SDS's long record of big data analytics in servicing large group affiliates.
