An excellent tool for data manipulation and analysis.
SAS EG offers many excellent features, such as parallel execution on the same server, controlling output datasets in the process flow, and conditional processing.
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.

Scheduling downtime of some programs has been eliminated.
We do not bother any longer with some programs did not run, hence having to rerun them again.
We now mostly use the Enterprise Guide for such scheduling purposes, so error processes will not inhibit the others.

SAS Enterprise Guide Cons

Consultant BI senior - spécialité SAS at a financial services firm
I feel that the performance could be increased by leveraging multi-thread with any SAS BI platform, not just the high performance ones.
I see no reason for limiting the process to sequential all the time.

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.

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.
