SAS University Edition adds a range of forecasting technologies
SAS University Edition adds a range of forecasting technologies : The new version of SAS University Edition includes a range of forecasting technologies critical to business, economics, manufacturing and other disciplines. The forecasting procedures join a multitude of capabilities in SAS University Edition. The offering provides free, easy access to statistical software to learn and perform quantitative analysis. Writing and submitting code is easy, with a powerful graphical interface to SAS advanced statistical analysis software. The ability to make sense of data is not only in high demand by employers, but is also critical to college coursework. “The new forecasting capabilities in SAS University Edition help students develop skills they can immediately apply in the workforce,” said Emily Baranello, Senior Director of the SAS Education Practice. “Many MBA students take a course in supply chain planning and logistics. For them and others, forecasting experience with SAS will broaden their marketability upon graduation.”
Professor James A. Rodger, DBA, uses SAS University Edition in his courses at the Eberly College of Business and IT at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. "SAS University Edition is great training for real-world careers ranging from software engineering to system and business analysts and data scientists. Students have found insights in data that were not apparent previously using other statistical analysis programs," said Rodger. "Business intelligence, data mining, sabermetrics, big data ... these dragons will be a lot easier to slay now that students have SAS on their side."
