Optimize SAS and Open Source Analytics Environments
Get more from your SAS and open source analytics environments
SAS is one of the most powerful analytics and data visualization tools on the market. It uses advanced technology to provide innovative solutions that can support a number of different environments and scale depending on the needs of the business.
However, running SAS in non-optimized environments results in excessive annual costs, long-running processes, and stability issues. This leads to challenges for analytics departments, IT personnel who support analytics users, and increasing annual costs for procurement leaders.
When your SAS infrastructure is not configured correctly, you will see symptoms such as:
Increasing infrastructure costs – requiring additional servers, more support staff, excessive backup and disaster recovery environments
Long-running processes – many jobs run for hours or days, often missing important SLAs
Stability issues – server crashes and disks running out of space

“Destiny worked with our team to locate and analyse 22 million lines of SAS code, optimizing logic and data issues. By redesigning our infrastructure, and writing custom scripts to our exact requirements, they increased the speed of our SAS jobs by 500% and reduced our five servers down to just one.”

“We tried everything to accelerate our SAS jobs, but no matter how many extra servers and additional storage we bought, nothing helped. The team was so frustrated, and we had to employ extra staff to work weekends just to run analytics tasks and reboot the servers when they crashed. Over a short period of time, Destiny found the issues and migrated us to a new SAS/Grid, reducing our servers from four to one, and increased our processing speed by 400%.”

“We’ve reduced our SAS infrastructure costs by $7 million per year. We didn’t need to invest in any additional hardware to make SAS more effective, we just needed to apply best practices and make it work better for us. Destiny uncovered issues we didn’t know we had and money we didn’t know we could save.”
