Enterprise Guide is the GUI front-end for SAS Base, and provides a click/drag/drop, menus and wizards interface for building SAS processes.
We have extensive experience in building process flows in Enterprise Guide for process automation and reporting purposes. To discuss your requirements, please get in touch.
Benefits of using SAS Enterprise Guide over SAS Base coding include,
- Process flows: SAS Enterprise Guide process flows provide transparency of the process for ease of handover and greater understanding of the process. Error reporting and quality control (QC) is built into the process to highlight issues in the processing and to ensure data integrity.
- Scheduling and batch processing: SAS Enterprise guide enables one-click scheduling of processes, with process statuses and output reports being emailed upon completion (or failure) of the process.
- Publishing results (when connected to a SAS Server): When integrated into a SAS Metadata server, results can be published directly to the server for distribution via portal.
- Stored procedures (when connected to a SAS Server): When integrated into a SAS Metadata server, commonly used pieces of code can be packed into a stored process,with input parameters and published for others to use.
