IBM and SAS Institute Inc. today took the wraps off a development and consulting alliance that gives IBM access to SAS software for business intelligence, data warehousing, and decision support. Under the agreement, unveiled today at PartnerWorld 2000, IBM's business partner conference in San Diego, the two companies will also develop tighter links between IBM's DB2 database and SAS software.
IBM plans to create a consulting practice within its IBM Global Services organization specializing in SAS systems. That practice will have access to a wide range of SAS products, including customer-relationship management software, supplier-relationship management applications, and data warehousing tools used to analyze data from enterprise resource management systems.
The deal is the latest of a series of partnerships IBM has established recently with major software vendors, including SAP and Siebel Systems Inc.
