SAS, which is privately held and doesn’t disclose specific financial information, says that its revenues for software sales alone grew 9 percent in the first quarter of this year.

The company did not include services revenues in its update.

SAS also says more than 300 customers licensed its newest offering, SAS 9, in the quarter.

“Customer adoption of this new platform, which far outpaces the limited, historical-facing capabilities of other traditional query and reporting vendors, is driving SAS revenue in every region,” said Jim Goodnight, president and chief executive officer of SAS, in a statement.

SAS also noted that it was the sole business intelligence software vendor included in the Vendor Value Study’s top 10 by CIO Insight Magazine and that it received a product of the year award from Datamation in enterprise applications.
