About IHS EViews

A part of IHS Inc. (NYSE: IHS), a leading global source of critical information and insight, IHS Global Inc. has been a developer of statistical software for over twenty-five years. IHS Global Inc. software solutions provide academic researchers, corporations, government agencies, and students with an easy-to-use object-oriented interface to powerful statistical, forecasting and modeling tools.

Originally developed and distributed by Quantitative Micro Software (QMS), our flagship product EViews has established a reputation as a worldwide leader in Windows-based econometric and forecasting software. The first QMS product, the popular MicroTSP software, was one of the first forecasting and analytical packages available for the personal computer. MicroTSP was replaced by the Windows-based EViews in 1994.

QMS was acquired by IHS Inc. in May of 2010.
