SAS (Statistical Analysis System) is one of the leaders in the statistical software industry. It offers various statistical functions and an amazing support but also charges a price for its features and service. It can be seamlessly integrated with other technologies like SQL and R by writing user defined functions called macros. This means one can easily transfer data to and fro from SAS to R or SQL. This is a great feature as it lets the organization to have the best of multiple technologies. For example, SQL is way better than SAS in extracting and manipulating large data while SAS is better in applying statistical functions. So, with the ability to connect with SQL, one can use SQL to fetch and maneuver the data and various statistical functions can be applied to the data by importing the data in SAS environment.
SAS is easy to learn for people who have a programming background in any language. It provides a SQL procedure PROC SQL which is very useful for people who know SQL and have to work in SAS environment for certain reasons. A lot of documentation, tutorials and support are available over the web to learn about SAS. It also has cloud offerings which make it easy for employees to access SAS over the web from any device without the tedious process of connecting through a VPN. The ability to have user defined functions called macros which can be reused is a great asset to SAS. SAS itself provides a large number of functions but at times, due to certain business requirements, one need to write their own functions which can be compiled and later used as an inbuilt SAS functions.
One of the major drawbacks I have faced with SAS is that various procedures cannot handle more than 20 Mn rows of data. One can argue that 20 Mn is a lot of data but for the industries like Retail and Insurance churn out that many rows are a normal phenomenon. It is very expensive as well and small organizations and startups cannot afford it.

I use Statcounter for all my sites. In fact, anytime I log online, I always track the most recent search queries driving traffic to my sites from search engines before doing any other thing. Easier and fast for me to track compared to using Google Analytics which I analyse once in a while.More about StatCounter
