It now offers solutions for data wharehousing, data mining, data visualization, application development, along with originally stat formats. Now works on a wide range of servers and platforms from Windows NT to UNIX.  SAS can be found from the census bureau to the IRS and postal service, and Universities and Colleges around the world.
