As you might have heard, businesses these days are increasingly confronted with the task of making better and more informed decisions quicker than ever before. Typically, these decisions often rely on multifaceted analyses of ever-growing accumulations of data in real-time. As a result, IT organizations with conventional infrastructure and software solutions are finding it difficult to respond to these changing business conditions and to manage this infrastructure. This setup requires administrators to spend excessive amounts of time configuring new server, storage, and network resources to keep up with the scale demanded by growing computing and storage needs.

Thankfully, Cisco and SAS collaborate in several strategic areas to provide solutions to these ever-changing business needs. SAS Analytics on Cisco UCS allows organizations to gain analytical insights and expose opportunities by taking advantage of the extremely scalable and reliable Cisco UCS infrastructure. Cisco UCS is drastically simplified architecture with embedded management that makes your system easy to scale to tackle larger problems and more intricate situations as your requirements change. It also reduces your TCO by requiring fewer infrastructure components, and it reduces operating expenses linked with staff time. This solution permits customers to solve complicated analytical problems, improve business performance, and diminish risk quickly and confidently.

SAS Global Forum 2018, happening April 8-11, provides the perfect opportunity to learn more about how Cisco and SAS are enabling our joint customers to overcome these infrastructure and software issues.
