SAS to deliver in-database analytic scoring to health care insurers

Thursday, April 8, 2010

The health care industry – like many others – is often overwhelmed by the vast amounts of customer data available. As part of its ongoing in-database efforts, SAS, the leader in business analytics software and services, has successfully engaged BlueCross Blue Shield of Tennessee in a pilot program embedding SAS Analytics within the company’s IBM DB2 enterprise data warehouse on IBM Power Systems.  

SAS In-Database processing is a flexible, cost-effective way to manage increasing amounts of data by embedding SAS technology into databases. Companies can gain significant competitive advantage by centralizing data, reducing data movement and enabling customers to translate models and score data directly within their data warehouses. This leads to faster access to analytical results and more agile and accurate decisions that comply with governance requirements.
