React to the speed of your business with HP Converged Systems for SAS

By Travis Kuter – HP Converged Systems


There is simply no doubting the unrelenting pace of business, and the IT industry as a whole. There is one fitting word which best describes what drives the pace. And the word I am thinking of is the word, “MORE!” IT enthusiasts continue to challenge technology companies like HP to always be doing more.


Today, HP delivers on the “More” by enhancing our recently released Converged Systems for SAS Visual Analytics by adding four new HP ProLiant Server configurations, as well as HP’s Automated-Ordering Assistant, to the mix.


And even better, these configurations can be ordered and used equally with all SAS High-Performance Analytics products such as SAS High-Performance Data Miner and High-Performance Analytics Server.

HP Converged Systems help LarrainVial optimize its investment strategy

“With the HP Universal Database Solution reference architecture and HP hardware and best practices, we were able to reduce the time to generate reports from the data warehouse by 86 percent.”

 LarrainVial is the largest financial services firm in Chile, transacting about 32 percent of the trades in the Chilean market, offering brokerage services, investment banking, and financial advisory services to corporations and individuals in markets throughout South America.


It’s essential for the company to have clear insight into the large volume of trades it is processing in order to remain competitive, and this has become more important with recent expansions into Brazil and the United States, where due to its fast growth there were delays in processing trading data into usable reports.

Vision: It is the faculty of seeing. It is sight. And it has the marvelous capability of helping others discover and perceive objects previously undetected. In business, this ability to see and analyze previously undetected objects like customer preferences and product trends is imperative.


Every company has massive amounts of data which when properly evaluated have the ability to deliver strategic as well as tactical insights. The questions become: how can they find the most relevant data and whether or not it is possible to unlock that hidden data? 

Video highlights of Big Data innovations with HP Converged Systems

According to IT Business Edge, a key reason that enterprises are warming to converged infrastructure is that it “offers a low-cost, scalable alternative to the current state of affairs, and may prove to be the best way to foster the kind of broad-based, multitenant resource utilization needed to drive next-generation data environments.”


In a video we captured at Discover 2013, Irshad Raihan and Keith Miracle talk about how HP Converged Systems, built on HP Converged Infrastructure, can help to deliver these next generation data environments.
