WVU is reviewing the licensing for SAS software. How are other institutions providing SAS for their users?

 

Individual licenses?

SAS Office Analytics for Administrative users?

Education Analytics Suite for Research and Teaching?

Custom contract?

 

Thanks for your feedback.

Hi Michael,

 

Sorry for the slow reply. We’re using the SAS EAS for academic purposes. That’s centrally funded and use is “free” to individuals. For administrative SAS use, we have a separate contract that charges us per user. Keep in mind that neither of these allow use by units that help outside organizations be they for profit or not. Those units mostly use R or other packages that have cheaper commercial licensing. Classes that want to do solve problems for outside organizations use IBM SPSS, which allows for that so long as the results go into the public domain in a journal or report posted on a web site. I don’t think SAS is so generous in that regard, but I’ve been meaning to check with them since IBM loosened their rules.

 

Cheers,

Bob
