About Us

Providing organisations with The Power to Know® since 1976.

SAS helps organisations anticipate business opportunities, empower action and drive impact. We do this through advanced analytics that turn data about customers, performance, financials and more into meaningful information. The result? Fact-based decisions for undeniable bottom line impact – this is how we transform the way our customers do business.

Why SAS is different

Commitment to Customers:Driven to solve customer business problems, privately-held, SAS works closely with customers in all stages of research and development to ensure that they get the most out of new offerings. More than 13,000 employees across more than 400 SAS offices provide local, hands-on support for customers whenever and wherever they need it. Customer loyalty, evidenced by long-standing SAS user communities and a strong renewal history, echoes this customer partnership and our shared commitment to a successful future.

People & Skills:SAS’ most important asset is its "creative capital," in the words of Chief Executive Officer Jim Goodnight. The technical and domain expertise of our employees helps SAS lead the way in high-performance analytics, empowering our customers to tackle complex problems using big data.

Technology: Organizations have THE POWER TO KNOW® through the combined strengths of SAS solutions and technologies.

  • SAS solves real-world problems like combatting fraud in Financial Services, expediting drugs to market in Life Sciences, and identifying cross-sell opportunities in Retail, as well as challenges facing every industry such as increasing the value of customer relationships, managing risk and optimising IT networks – all through industry and cross-functional solutions that reflect our domain expertise.
