In Daman, I had used the data module, where you can join the table and take whatever data we require for our work. You join tables and create columns as you wish, then analyze data in various ways depending on what the problem is. We used it to detect fraud, abnormalities, anomalies, abnormal trends, etc. It's also good for exporting and importing tables. View full review »

I think the Query Builder is very valuable. You just need to track and drop, everything is on the interface, without the need of too much coding. View full review »

Areas where SAS EG does a better job than regular SAS are in the realm of importing and exporting data. For instance, exporting a SAS data set in Unix to an Excel spreadsheet on a PC is a simple task compared to doing the same task with Base SAS. The usual virtues of drag and drop style interfaces with a flow chart-like depiction of the project and the ability to separate the project into individual flows, i.e., one for the slow data pulls from the databases, a second for data crunching, and a third for the outputting to the PC. The ability to copy the underlying SAS code from a node and modify it and/or reuse it elsewhere, and also the built-in versioning of program code stored in the project, is very useful for something that is run periodically and frequently updated. The ability to include it as part of the project code housed on either the PC or the UNIX box is handy, although EG doesn't provide the ability to version the code. View full review »

Statistical functionality and basic database interaction can become very straightforward for business users that don't have a background in SQL and data analysis. It allows business customers not familiar/comfortable with Unix environments to continue to use SAS functionality with interaction to data sources that are outside of their immediate control (application databases on remote hosts).
