In IBM's view, today's networked economy has created a global business landscape and a mandate for business change. Integrated global economies have opened markets of new opportunity and new sources of skills. The Internet has enabled communication and collaboration across the world and brought with it a new computing model premised on continuous global connection. In that landscape, companies can distribute work and technology anywhere in the world.
Given these opportunities, IBM is working with its clients to develop new business designs and technical architectures that allow their businesses the flexibility required to compete in this new landscape. The business is also adjusting its footprint toward emerging geographies, tapping their double-digit growth, providing the technology infrastructure they need, and taking advantage of the talent pools they provide to better service the company’s clients.
In 1968, seven engineers and mathematicians came together to reduce the complexities and costs related to data and computing. By perfecting a series of algorithms that streamlined mainframe sorting, used less resources, adapted to specific environmental variables and scaled to meet the demands of growing data volumes, they changed the way enterprises could think about the economics of data forever…and they created Syncsort.
Today, for thousands of organizations, and through 15,000 deployments in 70 countries, Syncsort unlocks measurable business value and transforms business-critical decision-making with the world's only Extreme Data Performance solutions – comprising powerful data protection software and the world’s fastest, most resource-efficient data integration software and services.
Headquartered in northeast New Jersey, Syncsort has international subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, France and Germany, with support centers across the United States and the Netherlands. An international network of partners, resellers and distributors includes Syncsort products as integral components of their IT solutions
Metacoda is a SAS Silver Alliance member, who specializes in the development of add-ons to help people get even more out of their SAS software investment. Their Metacoda Security Plug-ins can help SAS customers with their SAS platform security requirements and they have versions compatible with SAS 9.3, SAS 9.2 and SAS 9.1.3.
The software provides enhanced visibility of SAS metadata security implementations, in whole-of-server views, to significantly improve the productivity of administrators when it comes to SAS metadata security. The software allows them to rapidly review and troubleshoot metadata security by providing fast and thorough answers to questions. It is also beneficial in the ongoing governance and auditing requirements for an organization.
The software is designed primarily for SAS administrators and is installed and used within the SAS Management Console for seamless integration. It can be the difference between security being reviewed regularly versus not at all. It can also be the difference between being able to quickly troubleshoot an issue versus applying a quick fix to open up access because it would take too long to troubleshoot otherwise. We believe the time savings and support of good practices make the software very cost effective - especially if the alternative is to get a specialist consultant on site.
