SAS Enterprise Guide Review

An excellent tool for data manipulation and analysis

What is our primary use case?

SAS EG is an excellent tool for data manipulation and analysis.

How has it helped my organization?

SAS EG has evolved significantly, especially in the past 10 years. It has improved tremendously moving from providing an easy menu-driven system to also providing an excellent platform for developing and running full production systems, with minimal coding, which enabled increasing popularity among many non-programmers. As result of this, the application overall helped greatly improve the efficiency of the organization.

What is most valuable?

SAS EG offers many excellent features, such as parallel execution on the same server, controlling output datasets in the process flow, and conditional processing. Just to name a few.

What needs improvement?

It would be very useful if EG could be enhanced to automatically file and clear the project log to ensure non-stop running of the project.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

Which solutions did we use previously?

I have been using SAS for over 20 years and EG since its inception. I am happy with its power to manipulate data in a flexible, efficient way.
