Jersey City, N.J. – ISO is including business intelligence technology provider SAS in its growth strategy. The Jersey City, N.J., provider of risk information to property/casualty insurers will use the SAS Enterprise Intelligence Platform to help create more accurate analytic models, the company reports.

The relationship with SAS brings advanced analytic techniques and data management skills to the table, and ISO predicts its clients will ultimately better assess risk in the property/casualty insurance industry with additional predictive modeling.

“ISO has a vast and unprecedented amount of insurance data and a large staff of analysts,” says Marty Ellingsworth, president of the ISO Innovative Analytics unit. “Our team needs the best tools to effectively mine that data, visually explore new features, and track models through production for feedback and improvement. We found SAS to be the best solution to satisfy our needs.”

A grid-enabled SAS Enterprise Intelligence Platform will help ISO build robust analytic models more rapidly, giving simultaneous users increased computing bandwidth. The companies also predict that SAS’s visualization capabilities will significantly reduce data exploration timelines.

ISO reports that it will deploy the SAS GRID computing infrastructure for diagonal scalability to support future growth. ISO will draw on grid technology to extend and increase the lifespan of its investment in hardware resources.
