SAS makes analytics free for students

Arun Mysore

Starting from fall 2010 semester students around the world will get free access to SAS analytics software, reports Network World.  

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.”
