Exploring the Software

Let’s take a look at some facts about SAS and its philosophies.

SAS, earlier known as Statistical Analysis System, is a software suite by SAS Institute for tasks like advanced analytics, multivariate analyses, business intelligence, data management, and predictive analytics. When North Carolina State University re-hired Anthony Barr, the development of SAS took off in 1966 to allow his analysis of variance and regression software to run on IBM System/360 computers. Later, James Goodnight joined him. National Institute of Health funded this project hoping to better analyze agricultural data to improve crop yields.

Today, SAS can mine, alter, manage, and retrieve data from multiple sources and perform statistical analysis on it.
