I learned that SAS changes the licensse fees from per installation to per project each SAS users worked on.
Does this happed only individally to my employer or globally to every SAS users?
It's said the cose will be increased 4-5 times due the change, and we have to leary and test with other program package now.
As a certified SAS programmer, I want to say that the change affected not only SAS company and its customers, but also SAS programmers.

What is a "project" in this context?

We are doing education assessment for different states, or different tests for same state. Usually, each programer lincesed for one installation, then may assign for working on different assessment projects during different time. Now each programmer need more than licenses. This happened not only to SAS progromers, but to all SAS users in my institute.

If there's a different SAS installation per project, I can see this happening. But AFAIK the licenses will keep being done per machine, and priced according to number of cores / computing power.
