SAS Institute Risks and Challenges

SAS remains heavily entrenched in on-premise analytics space. The key is whether it can migrate its customers soon enough before some of them are being lured away by Cloud startups with more affordable pricing and flexible deployment options. As of 2020, revenues have been flat or declined for five consecutive years at SAS, To keep up with inflation, 2020 revenues would have needed to have been $3.4 billion, but they were only $3 billion. Given the unprecedented challenges of the 2020 global economy, it is hard to know whether this downward trend will continue. SAS also has several new competitors in data management, storage, and analysis, so how it meets this competitive challenge will be crucial.
