SAS Enterprise Guide Review

Scheduling downtime of some programs has been eliminated

What is our primary use case?

We make the most use of scheduled processing with Base SAS. If there is an error in one process, the others do not run as well because of possibly one error. Therefore, we now mostly use the Enterprise Guide for such scheduling purposes, so error processes will not inhibit the others.

How has it helped my organization?

SAS EG improved my organization. We do not bother any longer with some programs did not run, hence having to rerun them again. 

What is most valuable?

Scheduling downtime of some programs has been eliminated. The process flows are a very exciting feature to use. Also, for the tasks, this makes it easier to just filter without having to really code.

What needs improvement?

A log belongs to each program. I have experienced a situation where when I run just the exec files, it replaces the whole log and I wanted to see the earlier log, then this was not possible.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.
