re: Teradata Snubs SAS With In-Database Analytics Move
I donG«÷t see this announcement as negative for SAS. In fact, I see in-database technology as complementary. SAS users can simply write PROC SQL and call the
functions; just like they do for native Teradata functions. At Fuzzy Logix weG«÷ve seen SAS users get 10X to 100X improvement in processing performance. We encourage SAS users to leverage both Fuzzy Logix and SAS where appropriate. This is a path that is minimally disruptive to the thousands (millions? trillions?) of lines of SAS code already developed and lets users continue to work in their SAS environment while realizing the performance benefits of in-database analytics. An example of the performance of in-database analytics can be found in the global strategic partnership announcement located here: http://bit.ly/18e2OOv

re: Teradata Snubs SAS With In-Database Analytics Move
"Snub" is my spin on the effect of Teradata's announcement. As I reported, Teradata "insisted" that it's "not backing away from or diminishing its current partnership with SAS in any way." SAS and Teradata co-innovated in-database approaches. But that was more than five years ago and business is business. Teradata needs to spread its wings. SAS has partnerships with EMC and others. Life goes on.
