SAS looks to Kenya
Software firm SAS aims to expand its presence in Kenya, the company told a recent ICT business breakfast.
Carel Badenhorst, SAS head of technology practice in the Middle East region, said at a recent Multinational (MNC) breakfast in Nairobi that SAS hoped to establish an office in Kenya in the next 18 months.
He said Kenya’s systems holding operational data were now coming to maturity, making the time right for business analytics to come into play.
The company is already working with local research and academic institutions.
SAS is a key business intelligence and analytics software provider. Members of the Kenya ICT Board said at the breakfast that business intelligence and data analytics had an important role to play in improving the work of both enterprise and government.
