Layer3 Partners With SAS, Leader In Advanced Analytics

Layer3, a leading systems integrator and IT solutions provider with over a decade of deploying solutions for organizations in West Africa, has chosen to help organizations transform large amounts of data into knowledge that will solve today’s complex operational problems and capitalize on tomorrow’s opportunities through its partnership with SAS.

SAS is a global leader in Analytics as endorsed by both Gartner and Forrester, with 40 years of experience in the industry, developing innovative, business intelligence and data management software and services that drive the lifeblood of the business through facts and figures.  SAS business solutions are currently used by 91 of the top 100 companies on the 2015 Fortune Global 500®.

According to Niyi Osibeluwo, Senior Enterprise Solutions Architect at Layer3, “The data available today is growing very rapidly, comes in from different sources and is stored in different formats. This brings in the problem of how to integrate, analyze, verify and ultimately break down these data silos. We believe that our partnership with SAS will empower us to offer our customers the right tools that will help our customers make better and faster decisions using the large chunks of data that they already have but was previously inaccessible or unusable.”

With SAS’s strong track record in leveraging data to drive decision making, this partnership is strategically positioned to bring the much needed value to the Analytics landscape in this region.
