Stay informed on the best ways to manage SAS programs and installations
I am a long-time SAS 9 Administrator, I feel very confident in my understanding of SAS 9 administration. I will admit I don’t know everything, but I have been administering SAS since the days of SAS 9.1.3. I often tell my students I am a general practitioner when it comes
SAS Viya 2020.1.4 introduced support for Kerberos delegation. As a result, Kerberos delegation will be available with the Long Term Support release 2021.1. This series starts with an overview and continues into authentication processing in detail, Kerberos delegation configuration, and requirements for SAS/ACCESS to Hadoop. Part 1 - SAS Viya
In my previous post, Group-based access to Azure Files in the new SAS Viya, I walked through an example of making one or more Azure File Shares available to SAS Viya end user sessions with a group-based access pattern. This post extends the scenario and covers the case where we
I caught up with Mark Schneider, Advisory Product Manager here at SAS, about the future of SAS Grid and SAS Viya.
You've probably heard by now the new SAS Viya runs on containers orchestrated by Kubernetes. There is a lot to know and learn for both experienced users and k8s noobies alike. I would recommend searching the SAS Communities Library for a wealth of information on deployment, administration, usability, and more.
01. はじめに 最近多くの人々がクラウド環境をベースにしたデータストレージサービスを利用しています。 ここで皆さん、突然ですが、データを管理するためにローカル(またはオンプレミス)環境を構築していた過去を振り返ってみてください。 以前は、データを保存するために、関連ソフトウェアやハードウェアを購入・設置・インストールし、様々な環境設定を行います。３か月後、データの量が増えてきてデータベースの容量が足りなくなります。そしてまた多くの費用と時間を使って、必要なソフトウェア・ハードウェアを再び購入、同じく様々な環境設定をします。 上記に記載したような様子は現在のビジネス世界ではほとんど見当たりません。今日必要なのは、ただメールアドレスとクレジットカードのみです。最近では様々なデータストレージサービスが生まれてきたからです。このようなサービスはクラウド環境で動いていて、一定期間料金を支払えば利用できる「subscription」(サブスクリプション)ベースであり、前払い方式ではなく、使用した分だけ課金される「pay as you go」(ペイアズユーゴー)方式が特徴です。SASでも様々なデータストレージサービスに対応していますが、今日はその情報について詳しくお伝えします。 02. SAS/ACCESSのご紹介 「SAS/ ACCESS」とは、SASと他のベンダーのデータストレージサービスを連携するインターフェースです。下記のような特徴があり、様々なデータストレージサービスとの連携を支援しています。 シームレスで透過的なデータアクセス (Seamless, transparent data access) 柔軟なクエリ言語のサポート (Flexible query language support) パフォーマンスチューニングオプション (Performance tuning options) 性能最適化機能 (Optimization features for better performance) より詳しい情報はこちらをご参照ください。 様々なデータストレージベンダーの中で、今回は「SAS/ACCESS INTERFACE TO SNOWFLAKE」を使って「Snowflake」というサービスに連携してみたいと思います。* Snowflakeの設定はこちらを見て事前に行いました。 3. SAS/ACCESSデモ 3-1. LIBNAME statementで連携 SASのLIBNAME statementで簡単にSnowflakeとの連携を行うことができます。連携することでSnowflakeのデータをDATA StepやSASプロシージャで参照することが可能になります。LIBNAME Statementのサンプルコードは下記のボックスをご参考ください。 LIBNAME
Passionate about helping SAS customers, Sandy Gibbs of Technical Support sheds light on the SASHFADD tool report. This is the second of three posts on our hot-fix process.
SAS' Sandy Gibbs kicks off a series of posts on hot fixes for SAS®9 environments.
Because SAS Viya provides distributed computing capabilities, customers wonder how it compares to SAS Grid Manager. SAS® Grid Manager and SAS® Viya® implement distributed computing according to different computational patterns.
SAS instructor Raymond Thomas describes a typical day in the life of a SAS Administrator.
If you're my kids, the term, “continuous integration,” might have you thinking about how much time you’ve spent lately with the family, and “continuous delivery” is what's been happening on the front porch the past few weeks. But to a software developer, these terms mean something entirely different. Combined and
It’s official: NASA no longer builds spaceships. They’ve outsourced that task. According to NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine, "We're going with commercial partners. NASA is not purchasing, owning and operating the hardware. We're buying the service." Why? Because NASA needs to focus on exploring space, not building the transportation to get
Updated Nov. 18, 2020 The demand for data skills has been growing at a rapid rate and will continue to progress for years to come. According to the World Economic Forum (WEF), Data and AI will experience the highest annual growth rate for job opportunities, at 41%. It’s no surprise

Stored processes were a very popular feature in SAS 9.4. They were used in reporting, analytics and web application development. In Viya, the equivalent feature is jobs. Using jobs the same way as stored processes was enhanced in Viya 3.5. In addition, there is preliminary support for promoting 9.4 stored processes to Viya. In this post, I will examine what is sure to be a popular feature for SAS 9.4 users starting out with Viya.
Um dos principais focos do SAS é entregar, aos clientes, soluções comprovadas e inovadoras que garantam a melhoria do seu desempenho e os ajudem a diferenciar-se dentro da sua área e mercado de atuação. Ajudá-los a tirar o máximo proveito de cada ferramenta faz também parte da missão do SAS,
In this blog, I will show you how a Viya administrator can track and control resource usage of personal caslibs.
Site relaunches with improved content, organization and navigation. In 2016, a cross-divisional SAS team created developer.sas.com. Their mission: Build a bridge between SAS (and our software) and open source developers. The initial effort made available basic information about SAS® Viya® and integration with open source technologies. In June 2018, the
