Advanced Data Management & Analysis
ETSU purchases three statistical packages for use by faculty and staff: SAS, Minitab, and SPSS. If licenses are available, any of these packages can be installed on an employee's ETSU-owned desktop or laptop computer. To request installation, please contact the ITS helpdesk (phone: 439-4648, email: email@example.com ). They will forward your request to Academic Technology Services, and we'll get in touch with you to arrange a convenient time.
ETSU purchases the licenses for these packages on an annual basis. That means that at some point during the year, the license will expire and the package will cease to function unless the re-licensing information is applied. We typically transmit the license renewal information to SPSS users on campus around mid-July; for SAS, it's mid-January. Minitab operates a bit differently, because it continually receives its license information from a campus license server.
If you have any of these packages on your computer and they're displaying 'license expired' messages when launched, please contact the ITS helpdesk (phone: 439-4648, email: firstname.lastname@example.org ).
