The Power to Know...That's why, up to now, I still think SAS is a
second-tier player when it comes to areas other than statistical analysis
such as data warehousing and CRM, no matter how many "awards" they received.
(They were ranked #1 in data warehousing, but I am not aware anybody that I
know is using SAS to do data warehousing. They use Oracle, MS SQL server,
etc.) In fact, I used to receive the same mail from SAS at both home and
work, so I asked them to get rid of my home one. They told me there was no
way to see both addresses under my name at the same time. What I had to do
was to call them when I had the subscriber ID on my home copy. I don't know
whether they have been able to consolidate their customer information now.

...apparently does not include
the ability to look up a customer's
site ID or the SAS rep's (me) contact info.
I had to provide all of the above info in order to
request an evaluation copy over the phone.
Pretty ironic for a company selling CRM software :)
