SAS, the world's largest privately held software firm, already offers clients use of secure data housing and "cloud" computing services, but the company is expanding its global footprint in an agreement with Amazon.

The deal was announced Tuesday.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

However, one big customer was identified as using the new Amazon Web Service-SAS offering: Lenovo, the world's top PC manufacturer which operates its global executive headquarters in Morrisville.

Amazon is one of the top cloud service providers. Raleigh-based Red Hat also works with Amazon AWS.

SAS also says it is forming a "Cloud Innovation Council" among its customers and allies to develop a set of "best practices" for use of SAS products in the cloud. Counil members include Intel, Capgemini, Cloudera, CoreCompete, Hortonworks, Pinnacle Solutions and Selerity.

Why the New Offering?

SAS says the addition is designed to help give clients more "speed and flexibility."

Supported offerings include SAS Data Management, Business Intelligence and Analytics as well as Visual Analytics, which turns millions of data points into graphical representations. 

“Cloud-based technologies allow businesses to do more with less at a time when being agile and effective is more critical than ever,” said Scott Van Valkenburgh, SAS Senior Director of Global Alliances, in the announcement.

“SAS has been working with AWS to bring SAS Analytics into the AWS Cloud to help address the need for speed and flexibility in analyzing large amounts of data quickly and for taking new analytic approaches. Lenovo is an excellent example of how a company can run cutting edge solutions like SAS Visual Analytics on AWS to help increase efficiencies across its global operations.”
