The SAS system is a collection of programs originally designed to perform statistical analysis of data. The SAS software started out in the 1970s as a package for statistical analysis. By the early 1980s SAS had already branched out into graphics and spreadsheets. The SAS system now has a diverse family of products. Most of its products are integrated together and can be used as building blocks to construct a seamless system.

MSI has the SAS system installed on its supercomputers. In this tutorial, we will help you get your data into the SAS system. We will cover the topics and techniques ranging from reading data in different formats into the SAS software, to writing a basic SAS code to use some statistical procedure
