SAS eyes strong growth in India

Analytics software provider SAS Institute Inc expects to grow its revenue in India by 40% this year driven by the SAS9 platform it launched earlier this week.

By CBR Staff Writer

India remains a growth hotspot for Cary, North Carolina-based SAS.

We grew 30% last year, said Vivek Gokarn, managing director for SAS’ Indian operations in a statement this week. SAS9 is expected to drive this pace of growth to an even higher level.

Gokarn said that SAS will expand its direct sales force and alliance partnerships in India to extend its already strong industry solutions portfolio.

SAS will probably eye retail and manufacturing as new growth opportunities. The company has already carved a strong niche for itself in telecoms and pharmaceuticals sectors.

SAS’ main partners in India include Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), PwC, Tata Infotech, and Satyam.

The SAS9 platform integrates a broad set of software for analytics, data integration, and business reporting.

SAS remains privately-held. The company grew its revenue by 13.5% to $1.34bn in 2003, its 27th consecutive year of profitable growth.
