If you follow this blog, I am sure that you have heard that SAS® University Edition is free SAS software that can be used for teaching and learning statistics and quantitative methods. Now, we are celebrating its 1st Anniversary! In this time, it has been downloaded over 252,000 times. Thus, thousands of users have realized that it's the quickest way to start using the world's most powerful analytics.
As I mentioned in my previous blog, Analytics Careers are HOT, HOT, HOT, and throughout the world - in both public and private sectors - there is an analytics skills gap. SAS is helping to build the statistical knowledge needed to fill this gap and provide the workforce with high-demand skills to solve problems with analytics. SAS University Edition is designed for those who want to learn statistical software and perform quantitative analysis. This includes teachers, professors, students, academic researchers and independent learners. Why not give it a try?
Given the momentum that has been achieved in the first year, we wanted to make SAS University Edition even more readily available. In addition to being able to download it directly from SAS, we are excited to share -- as it was announced yesterday at SAS Global Forum -- SAS University Edition is now available on AWS Marketplace.
With more options than ever to access free SAS software, users now have the opportunity to learn and engage with SAS in the way that best fits their learning style.
