Data Republic now includes SAS analytics

Data-sharing governance platform and marketplace Data Republic announced it has entered a partnership with global analytics leader SAS, enhancing the services it can offer customers of its platform.

Data Republic is a Sydney-based start-up backed by Westpac, Qantas Loyalty, NAB, Qualgro and ANZ. It provides organisations a platform to safely share and analyse anonymised data, protecting consumer privacy and data security.

Data Republic's Senate Platform provides an all-in-one solution, allowing private and public organisations to govern the flow of data into and out of their organisation, to manage shared analytics projects in the cloud, and retain full control of the licensing, permitted use and visibility of their data.

Since launching in 2016, Data Republic's ecosystem has grown rapidly and now has more than 340 brands, service providers and expert consulting partners using the platform to negotiate and collaborate on shared data projects.

SAS is the world's largest privately-owned data analytics firm, reporting continuing profits since inception in 1976 and with customers at over 83,000 sites. Data Republic's partnership with SAS means its customers are now able to apply SAS analytics onto the data provided through its data exchange platform, revealing insights and intelligence not otherwise easily surfaced.

Data Republic co-founder and chief executive Paul McCarney said entering into partnership with SAS was a logical step in the growth of the company.

“While the service we offer has included analytics capabilities since the very beginning, many of our customers are leading banks, government agencies and other large organisations who already use SAS in house. Through this partnership they will now also be able to leverage their SAS expertise when managing shared data projects on the Data Republic platform."

David Bowie, vice-president of SAS Australia and New Zealand, said: “As much for the obvious benefits for our two companies, we have partnered in this way through the urging of several of our own long-time SAS customers. Data Republic’s offering is gaining wide acceptance by many of the same organisations we have served for many years, and they will now enjoy further advantage from their investments in SAS skills and knowhow.”

Users of SAS analytics in this environment will do so through Data Republic on a pay-per-use basis, with SAS providing the specific elements of its software required for the user’s project. The SAS software will reside within Data Republic’s online ecosystem for the duration of the project.

SAS sees the facility as being very attractive to its existing customers who will now be able to manage ad hoc analysis initiatives separately and externally, without impacting their in-house activities. Bowie also said, “And I think we can reasonably expect that — thanks to the fast growing take up of Data Republic’s solution — we may see more organisations adopting SAS analytics for insights to decision making."

RECOVERING FROM RANSOMWARE

Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks access to your files and systems until you pay a ransom.

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.
