SAS is proud to be part of the Data for Good movement, which encourages using data and analytics in meaningful ways to solve humanitarian issues around poverty, health, human rights, education and the environment. From preventing life-threatening illnesses to protecting endangered species to rebuilding after natural disasters, organizations across the globe are harnessing data to make a difference. By pairing the power of analytics with data, we’ve accelerated the discovery of new and creative ways to address global issues and serve the social good.
As part of our commitment, we developed a free app, GatherIQ, which focuses on the United Nations 17 Global Goals which world leaders agreed to for a better world by 2030. GatherIQ is an interactive hub for global citizens to learn, share and do more for our world. This app will give you a chance to take a look at the world through the lens of data and the stories behind the people that are already making a difference.
SAS’ dedication to corporate social responsibility and innovation runs deep – the company even uses its own analytics to help drive sustainability at its headquarters and global offices. This includes harnessing advanced analytics, event stream processing and computer vision to track data for its company beehives located on its campus headquarters.
