SAS Institute has extended its SAS System application development product down to MS-DOS microcomputers. Initially Version 6.03 from the Marlow-based company will provide SAS/Graph for information and presentation colour graphics and the SAS/FSP information processing system to construct screens for data entry, editing and reporting. In addition SAS/AF software will enable applications to be developed and saved for later use. Running under MS-DOS, the three integrate to produce a full scale development environment to create applications that will operate on the micro or on mainframes. Access is available to databases like dBase II or III and IBM’s DB/2 as well as to spreadsheets such as Lotus 1-2-3. In this respect, SAS claims that it brings the power of a mainframe to a micro. Information can be pulled down from mainframe-based Information Centres and manipulated at desk-top level. Written in C, SAS Version 6.03 features windows and supports the IBM PS/2, AT and compatibles. SAS Institute has also announced European turnover for the past year of $35.0m, up around 50% from last year. UK turnover for 1987 grew to $9.0m. Licences for the new release start at UKP450 a year for single users falling to UKP175 annually for single and corporate users alike.
