It is not known how much the deal was worth.

SAS chief executive officer Jim Goodnight said: “I want SAS to be the first company that public security organisations call to help them apply analytics to solve crime and protect citizens." Memex chief executive David Carrick said he believed the two companies were a natural fit.

“The combination of SAS’s business intelligence and advanced analytic offerings with our enterprise search, information processing and intelligence management offerings for the public security sector is unique within the marketplace,” he added.
