Logical approaches for utilizing SAS software can also play a big role in your processing performance. Triam consultants have the experience and best practices knowledge to tune the overall SAS environment and streamline your logical processing by providing a code review process to help maximize you performance, reduce the strain on your processing resources and provide the desired informational results.

SAS software is a very powerful platform. It also requires a high degree of care, effort and experience to install and configure. Triam consultants have the expertise to install and configure the software in a timely, effective manner. We can also explore options for maintenance agreements for ongoing or periodic assistance with your deployment. We can also mentor your internal staff to gain knowledge required to maintain the platform.

SAS Cloud Processing / Hosting Services

For some clients that do not prefer to maintain an onsite SAS server environment, Triam can provide a Cloud based option allowing you to access the power of the SAS environment remotely through a dedicated and secure hosted option for your organization. This is primarily offered through AWS but can be setup with alternate hosting options as well.

Triam would handle all the resource and staffing needed to support your entire SAS deployment for a fixed monthly fee. As a SAS Reseller, we can even setup the licensing agreement for your software utilization.

Big Data Consulting

Organizations continue to realize a significant increase in the volume of data being generated. This continued growth in data requires more attention to how the data is being processed, how it is stored and what elements need to be analyzed. Triam has worked with very large data volumes along with the associated data governance procedures. Some of the key areas of our experience include:

Data Warehousing / Analytic Marts

Triam specializes in developing a centralized source of information that can be used throughout an organization. Working with very diverse sources of data, consolidating and cleaning these sources and delivering a common, validated and trusted source of information for user consumption is critical to an organizations success. These sources can be enterprise level data warehouses to more targeted divisional analytic data marts.
Creating an effective central source of information is not cookie cutter structures. It requires a certain level of business understanding of the goals and usage objectives of the organization to deliver the information needed in a format that is easy to use and accessible. This requires a best practice, collaborative approach to design and architect the appropriate supporting data structure for the client’s needs. Identifying the input sources of data and understanding the output and analytic objectives allows our team to work towards the sweet spot for the supporting information structure in the middle.

RDBMS Development

Triam consultants can work with a broad range of data both coming in and storing out to most all of the common database engines available. These Databases provide similar but very diverse benefits for storing information within them and have different nuances within the programming language needed to access and update these data stores. Some of the more common structures we have worked with include:

  • SQL Server
  • Teradata
  • Oracle
  • Neteeza
  • DB2
  • Greenplum
  • PostgreSQL
  • Vertica
Hadoop data

a growing source of high volume information is being stored outside of the traditional RDBMS structures and are commonly being stored in Hadoop. Triam has been involved with and even partner with leading Hadoop vendors at Hortonworks and Cloudera. This can be a very cost effective option for storing much of the high volume data sources then feed into other structures with a subset and aggregation of this massive detail store.

Migration / Conversion Consulting

As organizations evolve, their processing needs and direction changes with it. Their software needs, data structures, system infrastructure and analytic deliverables all need to be evaluated as their business changes and they need to stay competitive. Triam consultants have the experience to assist with these evaluations and technical skills to make the needed transitions. Some of the key areas that we can provide assistance include:

Data Migration to Alternate Data Stores

As your data volumes increase, the storage and performance requirements can outpace many of your legacy data storage options. In some cases, tuning the environment can help but many times, a migration to a more powerful and expandable data storage option is necessary. We can help make this type of transition and make the needed adjustments to the data structures and elements that are needed within the new environment. This includes changes to the supporting programs that update and load the data.

Logic Conversion of Source Code

During a system conversion, there can be major re-write requirements of program logic. These efforts can be extensive and require a strong understanding of a broader range of software logic to evaluate and consume the legacy systems, incorporate any change requirements from the business and re-write the logic into a different language, format and structure. In other cases, there may only be small nuances between the environments but those seemingly small differences can also cause major impact in the process flow. Triam consultants have the experience and know-how to tackle these initiatives, working with our clients to provide a smooth transition and improved processing.

Platform / OS Changes

For some clients, decisions are made to migrate to a completely different operating platform. These decisions can be a result of a wide range of factors. In most cases we see this happen between UNIX, Linux, Windows and AS400 servers. This can be a complete system migration or some key applications going from one to another. Triam consultants have experience working within all of these platforms and can assist with the transition needed to get systems up and running within these changing operating systems.

SAS Migration (To / From / Hybrid)
