Researchers search for some computational package for their results. At the time when they have good output, they begin worrying about how to insert it in their LaTeX document. They have to keep track of their output, formatting and then insert it at the appropriate places in the document.

The SageTeX package is a blessing in these situations. It calls the powerful open source maths server Sage, to compute and embed the result into a TeX document.
