SAS Cloud launches through Azure Sydney

SAS and Microsoft Australia have announced the launch of SAS Cloud from the Azure region in Sydney.

The launch, which builds on a global strategic partnership established by the two companies earlier this year, will enable local customers to take advantage of SAS’s analytics and AI capabilities from the Azure cloud.

The deployment provides the second SAS Azure tenant globally to serve the needs of customers in Australia and the region.

SAS Australia and New Zealand Regional VP Lynette Clunies-Ross said the combined capabilities of SAS analytics and the Azure cloud will “underpin the new operating system for digital transformation”.

She added that the deployment “represents a tangible local investment in the global strategic partnership when coupled with the establishment of our SAS Cloud Centre of Excellence in Sydney to serve Australia and the Asia–Pacific region. Our joint local commitment brings confidence to our current and future customers and partners that they have access to the analytics technology and solutions they need for their digital transformation journey.”

Microsoft Australia Chief Partner Officer Rachel Bondi added that the two companies have a shared vision to further democratise AI and analytics.

“Australian organisations are increasingly aware of the power of data, analytics and AI to support their people, to deliver exceptional customer experiences, and to ensure businesses thrive and succeed,” Bondi said.

“Our partnership with SAS and the establishment of the SAS Cloud on Azure streamlines access to this capability for local organisations and we are delighted to partner on this initiative.”
