Founded more than 40 years ago, SAS Institute remains the leader in analytics entrenched in customer and business intelligence, anti-fraud, and predictive analytics. Last year, nearly 178,000 job postings listed SAS as a desired skill, according to Emsi, an aggregator of labour market data.

SAS Viya is an AI, analytics and data management platform. It uses open-source models or SAS models and can be accessed through APIs, interact with GUIs or with popular programming interfaces like Jupyter notebooks.
