The SAS philosophy has always been to attract and nurture the best individuals and then integrate them into an even better team. We have accomplished this by creating a workplace that fosters a healthy balance between real work and real life. It creates employees who define their personal success in terms of the contributions they make to the success of our customers.

SAS (pronounced "sass") once stood for "statistical analysis system," and began at North Carolina State University as a project to analyze agricultural research. As demand for such software grew, SAS was founded in 1976 to help all sorts of customers – from pharmaceutical companies and banks to academic and governmental entities.
SAS – both the software and company – thrived throughout the next few decades. Development of the software attained new heights in the industry by being able to run across all platforms, using the multivendor architecture for which it is known today. While the scope of the company spread across the globe, the encouraging and innovative corporate culture remained the same.
