Samsung Securities picks big data analytics from SAS and Platform Computing to manage risk

23 Aug 2011 Singapore - Korean businesses like Samsung Securities are wielding big analytics to lower risk and increase performance speed during critical periods. They're doing it with SAS, an expert in business analytics software and services, and Platform Computing, specialized in cluster, Grid and Cloud management software.

By applying SAS Grid Manager to its SAS for Enterprise Risk Management system, Samsung Securities expects to increase overall risk calculation throughput by 30 percent while also improving the accuracy of the analysis. Part of the SAS High-Performance Computing portfolio, SAS Grid Manager provides a central point for administering policies, programmes and prioritization to achieve business goals across multiple users and groups under a given set of constraints.
