SAS Technology Beta Program

SAS Computing Beta logo

SAS Computing is always experimenting with new technologies for teaching, research, and administration.

We are eager to work with faculty, staff, and students to identify new technologies to advance teaching, research and efficient adminstration. We will often engage in short-term pilots of new technologies in "beta" tests. These beta tests help us to determine if a technology is effective, measure adoption and evaluate whether they should be scaled up.

As beta tests, we cannot guarantee the long-term availability of the solutions listed here, but we encourage interested faculty and staff to test them and give us feedback so that we can move in the right direction.
