Italian financial company UniCredit Group worked with SAS and Teradata to run advanced analytics on processes directly connected to the Teradata Data Warehouse. UniCredit was the first organization to adopt and deploy the Teradata Appliance for SAS, Model 720, running SAS Visual Analytics to fully integrate data and analytics in a streamlined business process. The SAS and Teradata combination enables UniCredit to explore and identify trends and patterns, helping the organization seize emerging opportunities, manage risks and make the right choices. The solution gives UniCredit the best answers to complex business questions in near-real time, providing new insights to analysts – and gaining productivity as well. Teradata BYNET interconnect adds analytic servers to provide rich new tools and algorithms to the Teradata analytic environment. The BYNET enables high-speed, fault-tolerant, warehouse-optimized messaging between nodes.

“Our customers asked for appliance-ready offerings with quick time to value and low total cost of ownership. This is exactly what UniCredit is reporting,” said Rick Lower, CA-AM, Teradata Alliance Director. “As our many shared customers realize increasing value to their organizations, we are confident that we represent the most formidable analytics alliance in the world.”
