Software and Application Development

The SAS IT Office currently has a staff of four Application Developers dedicated to writing software for SAS Undergraduate Education and the SAS Dean's Office. Currently we are unable to offer programming services to departments but we hope to offer this service in the future. Until we have the resources to make this service available more widely, we would be happy to recommend and work with outside contractors who can perform this service.

By working with our office to manage your outside programming project we can help ensure with the application's design and security. We can also make sure that the software is written in a way that will allow us to host the applications on our central servers. By hosting the applications on our servers you can either save time by not having to manage your own server or pay exorbitant fees to for an outside hosting service.

For descriptions of applications, including which departments are using each of them, click application name or scroll down further in the page, view the Software Development Application Catalog, Search or view the all SAS Application pages pages.
