Originally called "Statistical Analysis System", SAS System is an
integrated set of data management tools from SAS Institute, Cary, NC. It
runs on a variety of platforms from PCs to S/390 Enterprise Servers. Its
core called Base SAS software consists of complete programming language
and a number of prewritten programs called procedures. A great many of
other procedures are included in additional SAS products licensed
separately. They embrace modules for statistical analysis, spreadsheets,
CBT, presentation graphics, project management, operations research,
scheduling, linear programming, statistical quality control,
econometric, time series analysis, to name a few.
