Xythos Software, a developer of simple document and file management software, has announced that SAS has integrated its WebFile Server technology with the SAS Enterprise Business Intelligence Server offering, including the newly released SAS 9. The integration of Xythos technology with SAS 9 is the most recent step in the two companies' relationship, which began when SAS introduced Xythos' WebDAV-based document management technology in SAS Drug Development. This move was followed by a similar integration with SAS Corporate Compliance for Sarbanes-Oxley, which addresses the issues of the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation. SAS 9 is designed to allow customers to transform data into intelligence faster and more effectively than ever before. Xythos WebFile Server technology has also recently been integrated within the Blackboard Content System from Blackboard Inc., a provider of enterprise software and services to the education industry.
