SAS or Software-as-a-service is a new web-based solution aimed at translating the software products into software services. The IT industry is finding it extremely difficult to cope up with rising prices and the rapidly changing corporate ambiance. The companies are not able to meet these challenges solely with the help of traditional technologies. Thus they are adopting new methodologies to fulfill their operational needs and maximize business performance. SAS is one such answer to these challenges, which enables service providers and vendors to work on software applications which are available to customers through Internet. The process is similar to that of Cloud Computing.
Here’s how a SAS professional can earn based on experience, gender, industry education and city.
