NOTE: Rivals Take Aim

The New York Times published a balanced and thoughtful feature on SAS last Sunday. The feature gently illustrated the counterpoint between SAS's Cary employees' apparently comfortable working life and the impending onslaught on SAS's markets resulting from recent business intelligence aquisitions from heavy-hitting IT giants such as IBM, SAP and Oracle. Recommended reading... Nice slide show too, including a picture of SAS's solar farm, operational since December 2008 and with an estimated 1.7 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) annual output. There's a second solar farm planned for March 2010, with an estimated 1.9 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) annual output.
