About SAS

Giving you The Power to Know® since 1976

Some people see data as facts and figures. But it’s more than that. It’s the lifeblood of your business. It tells the history of your organization. And it’s trying to tell you something.

SAS helps you make sense of the message. As the leader in business analytics software and services, SAS transforms your data into insights that give you a fresh perspective on your business. You can identify what’s working. Fix what isn’t. And discover new opportunities.

We help organizations turn large amounts of data into knowledge they can use, and we do it better than anyone. It’s no wonder an overwhelming majority of customers continue to use SAS year after year. We believe it’s because we hire great people to create great software and services.

SAS is used at more than 70,000 sites in 136 countries, including 91 of the top 100 companies on the 2013 Fortune Global 500® list.

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.
