What Exactly Does SAS In-Database Really Mean?
Editorâ€™s note: David Pope is a SAS Solutions Architect and is helping to support SAS at the M2010 Data Mining Conference working in the SAS/Teradata partner booth, highlighting our partnership and how SAS and Teradata work together.
The Teradata booth has drawn quite a lot of traffic and interest in â€śwhat exactly does SAS In-Database really meanâ€ť. I have had to show several different demos ranging from actually using classic SAS display manager to show PROC FREQ running in-database to higher level demonstrations of SAS Enterprise Miner publishing a score into Teradata using the SAS Scoring Accelerator for Teradata and then using SAS Enterprise Guide to call the function and run a Frequency report which can then be displayed in SAS Enterprise Business Intelligence interfaces like the SAS BI Portal.
Bottom-line: SAS In-Database offerings helps to open doors to all the capabilities SAS has from Data Integration, Analytics, Reporting, to Solutions that may take advantage of this capability behind the scenes.
