I think that this solution is a good start to get into the data analysis field. The license for this is not per user so anyone who wants to use the product can approach it, and can take a look at it, rather than it involving a lengthy process. If the solution was per user, we would need to take into consideration whether it was necessary for a particular user to access it. I think that's how it changed our business. Previously we had a dedicated data team, so every request needed to be sent via them. Now the solution is open to everyone in the company so they can get on board with all the data analysis.

In general, for large complex programs, I found myself wishing I had access to the base SAS environment. People did not use the EG specific features, just writing long programs in Base SAS, using EG to launch them. Also, I could never get the ability to run code in parallel on the SAS Grid. For instance, long running data pulls from multiple databases, when working, were slow when running the entire program sequentially in Base SAS. View full review »

Users that want to code SAS but don't have expertise or comfort coding and/or running SAS in a Unix background will use this as a SAS IDE, and not as a true graphical process environment with the ability to "re-use" common process patterns. If the user base can be given some good basic guidelines it can be a serious productivity improvement tool. View full review »
