London, Jim Goodnights considered responses and soft Southern drawl left the
impression of a thoughtful figure who just happens to be chief executive of a
$1.34bn business. His taciturn aspect changed when the absolute quality of his

Jim Goodnight: crunching the numbers

By Michael Dempsey

Addressing a recent business intelligence conference in
London, Jim Goodnights considered responses and soft Southern drawl left the
impression of a thoughtful figure who just happens to be chief executive of a
$1.34bn business. His taciturn aspect changed when the absolute quality of his
companys software was raised. SAS is still quicker and better, he states.
Despite the waves of re-labelling that have allowed his business to surf
through management information systems and data warehousing to reach todays
focus on business intelligence and performance management, Mr Goodnight defines
SAS in the light of a very old-fashioned customer grouse. When we ship
software, its almost bug-free. We learnt about doing that the hard way, many
years ago. During the 1980s, SAS released some software before it was fully
tested and provoked a vocal reaction from the users. They let us know what was
wrong with it. He jokes about the number of bugs that are still found in other
large commercial systems and then generously redeems his competitors with the
remark but then we do so much more testing.
