The acronym SAS stands for statistical analytical software and was created by The SAS Institute located in the research triangle of Cary, NC. They are considered the largest privately held software company in the world. Their suite of analytics software is used by the majority of Fortune 500 companies. SAS software has created immense value among large enterprise businesses through its ability to create insights and opportunities with business intelligence and advanced decision making technology. For enterprise business, the applications are almost endless and SAS has become one of the most desirable skill-sets in the interdisciplinary field of data, statistics and analytics. The analytical solutions that SAS offers are targeted more for enterprise business, and they tend to focus on the analytics and business intelligence side of the value proposition. Needless to say, SAS programming and other SAS programmer skills have become some of the most desirable skill-sets in all of technology employment. Now let’s take a look at some future trends in SAS.
With the hyper-growth occurring in the data science, analytics and business intelligence space; SAS is well positioned to remain a major software provider in analytics and business intelligence. Their private corporation status makes them much more agile than other software companies of their size. SAS has done an excellent job of entrenching themselves among some of the largest enterprise businesses in the world. This deep entrenchment creates an interdependency for technology talent with SAS experience to meet the demands of organizations who use SAS. Competition is always at play in this field, and the growth of SAS could be somewhat hindered by the unknowns of artificial intelligence solutions from providers like IBM Watson, or GE. But SAS appears to position themselves more so on the analytics side of the value proposition, rather than the raw processing power which artificial intelligence will likely offer. SAS impacts the job market a variety ways, more information on analytics jobs can be found here. Now let’s take a look at career considerations for SAS jobs and employment in the field that requires SAS experience.
The demand for SAS talent has continued to increase over the past decade and will so in the foreseeable future. For job seekers who are just entering the job market, this expertise on your CV or resume will be very valuable. Ninety percent of the Fortune 500 use the SAS suite of software, so there’s an inherent alignment with big business. Small to mid-market employers tend to use more cost effective and slightly less robust analytics software and solutions, so inherently companies of that size will likely desire expertise in other software providers besides SAS. With that said, there is an abundant crossover of skills between software providers; so candidates with statistical and analytics skills will be highly desirable during their job search. It's noteworthy that SAS is very entrenched among clinical research companies, so candidates who desire a career path in the healthcare sector can find tremendous opportunity among big pharma and the third party clinical research providers who support them. Geographically speaking, job seekers will find many of the available positions in the major market cities throughout the United States, and even internationally.
