ETABS is the abbreviation of " Extended3D Analysis of building System". ETABSis a product of Computers and Structures, Inc. which is recognized globally as the pioneering leader in structural engineering analysis and design software for structural and earthquake engineering. They have introduced ETABS whith the following paragraph. 

The innovative and revolutionary new ETABS is the ultimate integrated software package for the structural analysis and design of buildings. Incorporating 40 years of continuous research and development, this latest ETABS offers unmatched 3D object based modeling and visualization tools, blazingly fast linear and nonlinear analytical power, sophisticated and comprehensive design capabilities for a wide-range of materials, and insightful graphic displays, reports, and schematic drawings that allow users to quickly and easily decipher and understand analysis and design results.
