SAS (pronounced “sass”) once stood for “statistical analysis system.” It began at North Carolina State University as a project to analyze agricultural research. Demand for such software capabilities began to grow, and SAS was founded in 1976 to help customers in all sorts of industries – from pharmaceutical companies and banks to academic and governmental entities.
SAS – both the software and the company – thrived throughout the next few decades. Development of the software attained new heights in the industry because it could run across all platforms, using the multivendor architecture for which it is known today. While the scope of the company has spread across the globe, the encouraging and innovative corporate culture has remained the same.
SAS corporate culture is recognised worldwide, having inspire the likes of Google. Personified by the charismatic Jim Goodnight, founder and CEO, SAS is an example for CSR around the world.

DSTI’s a founding member of the Artificial Intelligence Interdisciplinary Institute (Institut Interdisciplinaire d’Intelligence Artificielle) – 3IA Côte d’Azur. This project, supported by David Simplot, Director of the INRIA Sophia-Antipolis Méditerranée Center and Innovation Vice-President of Université Côte d’Azur, was confirmed by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation on Wednesday, April 24th 2019. This announcement was made at the conclusion of a call for expression of interest launched in July 2018, and two selection phases (November 2018 and April 2019) by a jury of international and independent experts.
As part of the National Programme for Artificial Intelligence announced by President Emmanuel Macron in March 2018 during the “AI for Humanity” day, the State decided to create a network composed of a small number of 3IA institutes. A call for expression of interest was therefore announced in late July 2018 to collect applications. Of the twelve applications, only four were selected: Grenoble, Paris, Toulouse and Côte d’Azur. These four 3IA institutes are labeled for a four-year period and will mobilise a global financial envelope of 75 million euros.
3IA Côte d’Azur will be located at the Sophia Tech Campus, in the heart of Sophia-Antipolis, Europe’s leading science and technology park. Supported by the Université Côte d’Azur, and its many organisations, this project will bring together a hundred researchers around four essential axes: “fundamental AI”, “AI in computational medicine”, “computational biology and bio-inspired AI” and “AI and smart and secure cities”. These world-class specialists will focus on training, research and transfer to businesses.
The 3IA project includes major actors such as INSERM, EUROCOM, Mines ParisTech and SKEMA Business Schools with the support of CEA, CHU de Nice, CNES, Data ScienceTech Institute, INRA and some territorial economic development actors.
