Analyst Coverage:

SAS is headquartered in North Carolina, and was founded in 1976. The company started life by offering the SAS System, a 4GL-based statistical package for financial and economic analysis, but the company has since expanded to offer a multi-faceted product set providing organisations with a complete information delivery system. This includes data warehousing, business analysis and analytical intelligence. In fact, the company provides all aspects of business intelligence functionality, except the hardware, for which SAS partners with hardware vendors and systems integrators. In recent years the company has concentrated in developing vertically specific analytic solutions. The company has offices throughout the world.

SAS consistently invests a significant proportion of its revenues into R&D. Currently, this stands at around 25%. This emphasis on R&D, plus the company’s refusal to listen to the blandishments of the stock market (where short-term trends are more important than long-term profits), has meant that today SAS is, by some margin, the largest independent vendor to specialise in the business intelligence market.
