SAS makes analytics free for students
Starting from fall 2010 semester students around the world will
get free access to SAS analytics software, reports
SAS OnDemand for Academics, a Web-based service hosted by SAS, has been providing software free for professors since 2008. SAS had been charging $ 50 to give students access to its software.
Network World quoted Jim Goodnight, CEO of SAS, who started as an academic, saying:"The more students that graduate with the knowledge of SAS, the more that will promote the use of analytics in business and that's very important these days."
