SAS Data Preparation 2.1 is now available and it includes the ability to perform data quality transformations on your data using the definitions from the SAS Quality Knowledge Base (QKB). The SAS Quality Knowledge Base is a collection of files which store data and logic that define data quality operations

PROC FREQ is one of the most popular procedures in the SAS language. It is mostly used to describe frequency distribution of a variable or combination of variables in contingency tables. However, PROC FREQ has much more functionality than that. For an overview of all that it can do, see
Authorization determines what a user can see and do in an application. An authorization system is used to define access control policies, and those policies are later enforced so that access requests are granted or denied. To secure resources in SAS Viya there are three authorization systems of which you need to be aware. The General
ln SAS Viya, deployments identities are managed by the environments configured identity provider. In Visual SAS Viya deployments the identity provider must be an LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) server. Initial setup of a SAS Viya Deployment requires configuration to support reading the identity information (users and groups) from LDAP. SAS Viya 3.3
The CAS procedure (PROC CAS) enables us to interact with SAS Cloud Analytic Services (CAS) from the SAS client based on the CASL (the scripting language of CAS) specification. CASL supports a variety of data types including INT, DOUBLE, STRING, TABLE, LIST, BLOB, and others. The result of a CAS
SAS Viya provides a robust, scalable, cloud-ready, distributed runtime engine. This engine is driven by CAS (Cloud Analytic Services), providing fast processing for many data management techniques that run distributive, i.e. using all threads on all defined compute nodes. Why PROC APPEND is a common technique used in SAS processes.
Many SAS users have inquired about SAS Cloud Analytic Services’ (CAS) Distributed Network File System (DNFS) of late, so let’s look at it further in this blog post. (Learn more about CAS.) The “NFS” in “DNFS” Let’s start at the beginning. The “NFS” in DNFS stands for “Network File System”
As a SAS Viya user, you may be wondering whether it is possible to execute data append and data update concurrently to a global Cloud Analytic Services (CAS) table from two or more CAS sessions. (Learn more about CAS.) How would this impact the report view while data append or
When loading data into CAS using PROC CASUTIL, you have two choices on how the table can be loaded: session-scope or global-scope. This is controlled by the PROMOTE option in the PROC CASUTIL statement. Session-scope loaded proc casutil; load casdata="model_table.sas7bdat" incaslib="ryloll" outcaslib="otcaslib" casout="model_table”; run; Global-scope loaded proc casutil; load casdata="model_table.sas7bdat"
There are many compelling reasons existing SAS users might want to start integrating SAS Viya into their SAS9 programs and applications. For me, it comes down to ease-of-use, speed, and faster time-to-value. With the ability to traverse the (necessarily iterative) analytics lifecycle faster than before, we are now able to generate
