SAS creates subsidiary to serve federal agencies

SAS Institute Inc. is creating a subsidiary specifically to serve the growing data integration and analysis needs of the federal government, particularly the homeland security and intelligence communities.

The company will reassign more than 50 employees to the subsidiary and hire additional experts with relevant security clearances to assist the intelligence and homeland security agencies, SAS said.

Although all federal departments use SAS software products and services, a dedicated subsidiary will serve the market better, said Tom Mazich, vice president of government operations at SAS.

Government customers should not experience any changes in SAS services during the transition to the subsidiary and afterward, he added.

The Treasury Department, the Navy, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other agencies use SAS software's analytic and predictive capabilities for critical initiatives such as performance, budgeting and workforce management; logistics; combating fraud; and threat assessment, the company said.

SAS' State and Local Government Practice will continue to operate as part of SAS.

The Cary, N.C., company announced the subsidiary at the SAS Executive Conference for Government in Washington.
