I don't contract "SAS" specifically, but rather, I contract my skill as,
among other things, a prgrammer who uses SAS as a tool. I don't know if I
speak for other contractors here, but my own goal is not, and has never
been, to market SAS as a solution. SAS has their own sales and marketing
department geared toward this end.
