Foundation Tools

Providing strength and integration for SAS® products and solutions.

SAS is an integrated system of software that enables you to do everything from accessing data across multiple sources to performing sophisticated analyses and delivering information across your organization. SAS foundation products are available as individual software modules, and they serve as the foundation for SAS solutions.

SAS® Enterprise Guide

A powerful Windows client application that provides a GUI for transparently accessing the power of SAS.

SAS® Grid Manager

SAS® Studio

How SAS® Is Different

  • As part of an integrated framework, all SAS software components and services are managed from a single point, reducing the administrative effort for maintenance of applications, users and security.
  • With SAS, data consistency is assured because metadata is stored in a single metadata repository and is shared across all SAS technologies and solutions.
  • With SAS, you can license ready-to-use, specialized solutions or you can build your own applications to deliver the business intelligence and analyses you need.
