It is not absolutely necessary to learn tools to make sense of huge amounts of data. But managing the sheer volume of data is a task in itself. So knowing some tools that make the job easy is a boon to any data analyst. SAS one of the most popular data languages. Many data scientists swear by SAS programming. SAS is easy to learn and has a Graphic User Interface (GUI) that makes it easy to use. One of the reasons data scientists prefer SAS is that it can read data files created by other statistical tools. So one does have to customize statistical programs to work with SAS. SAS works on scripts and once you master the art of writing scripts you have mastered the SAS programming language.
