About SAS India

Message from Sudipta K. Sen
Regional Director, South East Asia 
Vice Chairman & Board Member - India 

Welcome & greetings to you!

With the rising complexity of global business, gut decisions & hunches no longer suffice. Today's competitive market dynamics compell organizations to create new growth paths and optimize and fine tune their strategies. Successful responses to threats and opportunities now depend on smart and rapid execution. Leaders & decision makers across echelons are realizing that in order to grow today and tomorrow, they no longer could depend on what worked well for them yesterday. They realize that the ability of an organization to predict future business trends with reasonable accuracy will be one of the crucial competitive advantages of this new decade. Fact based decision making is what will drive business success and Analytics is the key to achieving this. Imagine the business impact your organization will have if for instance, you could increase revenue using your data to make confident, fact-based decisions, or if you could deliver more campaigns – with the same staff – to retain your most valuable members! Our mission at SAS is to make this possible for you! SAS has an impact on everyone, every day. From the loans you purchase and the cars you drive, to the medicines you consume, the power you use and the cell phone plan you select, SAS plays a role in your daily life.

SAS delivers superior Analytics software and services that empowers people, with the power to make the right decisions. With over a decade of our existence in India, we have helped leading brands across industries, continuously INNOVATE, OPTIMIZE and TRANSFORM the way they do business, giving them the strategic competitive advantage.

Our focus is to provide organizations the ability to glean greater value from one of the most important assets, the large volume of information that is collected and maybe not fully appropriated. Our expertise meets this and the other critical aspects of the modern enterprise around the issues of risk, the customer, fact based decision making, the agility and opportunity to obtain real competitive advantage and the allied return on investment that it accompanies.

It gives me immense pleasure to share with you that SAS - leader in Analytics and Business Intelligence, continued its growth track record for the 38th consecutive year and achieved global revenues of $3.02 billion in 2013. In India, SAS has retained its leadership position in Advanced Analytics market with 50% market share.
