Our Purpose
At SAS, we believe when curiosity meets capability, progress is inevitable. So, we work to enable exploration and discovery – to encourage people to believe no data problem is too great, no question is too complex and that the search for answers will lead to positive change.

Our Vision
To transform a world of data into a world of intelligence.

We look to the future with the same spirit of curiosity that has always led us to innovation. If data without analytics is value not yet realized, what does that mean in a world where data is growing exponentially?

The world is at a turning point with data and analytics. Soon everything and everyone will be generating data around the clock. Successful organizations transform this new abundance of potential intelligence into value with analytics.

Customers will need guidance through an increasingly complex web of data and analytics. They will need ever-evolving technology to stay ahead of the curve. They will need the help of smart people with expertise as they consider factors that range from shifts in skills to shifts in entire industries. Our goal is to lead the way.

Our Mission
To empower and inspire with the most trusted analytics.

Technology is also causing major disruption – both positive and negative – to individuals and businesses. In the face of uncertainty, people are looking to those who can provide stability along with progress.

Our goal is to make it easier for our users to tackle any challenge and to look at things in new ways. Why do an overwhelming majority of our very first customers still rely on us today? And why do new customers turn to us? Because of our innovative spirit and how we put it into action. Our expertise in data and analytics. Our commitment to keeping customer data safe. And the proven quality of every line of code we create.

Our Values
We’re relentless problem solvers, unafraid to challenge assumptions by being creative and forward-thinking.

We’re committed to excellence in everything we do and we thrive on meaningful work.

We’re genuine, we’re transparent and we lead with integrity.

We’re responsible, we do things right and we exceed what’s expected.

Our Personality
Our roots are in academia and we appreciate what it takes to carefully consider multiple options in order to get to the best results. Sure, we’re nerdy. But charmingly so.

Caring deeply for our customers and our employees has always been what we’re known for and it influences all that we do as a global company.

As our customers’ ambitions rise, so do ours. Organizations want to do more with data and analytics; we’re the company that can help them.

We’re dedicated to solving our customers’ challenges and cheering for their success. When it matters most, we’re the analytics company customers rely on.

Our Stands
Innovation. Education. Data for Good. Diversity & Inclusion.

These are the areas where we believe our investments of energy and resources and our tireless advocacy, will leave the greatest mark on the world. We are motivated by challenges that allow us to combine our technology with our emotional connection to the world’s needs.

Our Investment
We are investing US$1 billion in AI over the next three years. The billion-dollar investment in AI will focus on three main areas:

  • Research and Development innovation, where SAS continues to build on the success of its global AI efforts;
  • Education Initiatives addressing customer needs, to better understand and benefit from AI;
  • and Expert Services to optimize customer return on AI projects

Our Promise
When progress matters, you can count on SAS.

From the beginning, our focus hasn’t wavered: When a customer is facing a challenge, we work until we have a solution. Then we think about how that solution might help someone else.

Our Mantra
Be Curious.
If we can bring analytics to wherever there is data, everyone and everything will be able to make smarter, more intelligent decisions.

Our Tagline
Our tagline – The Power To Know® – remains a consistent and vital part of our brand identity. It represents a mindset of confidence. By empowering and inspiring people to attain knowledge with analytics, we connect our brand identity with who we are, what we create and what we stand for as a company.
