Hi Kicheko -- absolutely, SAS offers a wide variety of analytics software as a service under the SAS OnDemand label. Offerings include those for campaign management, customer experience analytics, marketing operations management, social media analytics, and more.

That's a funny observation Seth. And yes I do - pour baking soda down the drain!

Disposable apps?  That kind of reminds me of how Arm & Hammer Baking Soda convinced people to buy their product and pour it down the drain.

However, if they could make apps that cheap, that would encourage companies to experiement with analytics, without the fear of making investment mistakes.

Beth, - I am wondering if SAS has a SaaS offering. I read something like that and thought instead of one buying SAS to deploy to the public cloud why can't they go for the SaaS offering. Unless they strictly want to deploy on private cloud.

We need solutions that not only use the cloud ( like the new SAS solution), but also use mobile technology. Ideally you should be able to view data and add data easily through mobile devices. The concept of seperate apps for each device and a constatnt need to update will not make it. Now that we are using IPv6, it is also time to embrace web based solutions using HTML5.

Beth, it depends on which end you look at it from. I work on the service provider side so I am seeing much more of it on what would be considered the backbone of the internet and in core routing. so from that perspective its getting there much quicker than the LAN side where office buildings are still primarly IPv4. So, as an example. A large company might have a pretty big network in their office which uses IPv4 but their link out to their service provider is IPv6, a setup like that gives them the flexability to make the migration at a slower pace.

Ah, good old IPv6. That's been a long time in coming... and we're not totally there yet, are we? Even in the US.

Beth, I would think so and I think IPv6 will be a big part of what drives it. IPv6 has security features built in that were not avalible in IPv4 which is something "the cloud" will benefit from a great deal. I generally see regulation lags behind technology by a few years, but as IPv6 is deployed in more networks security will become less of an issue and then it will be time for compliance regulations to catch up.

@buik, is that to say you think we'll see compliance reforms that account for data being stored and served up off premises?
