As discussed above, the process flow and code wizards are very valuable as they allow any analyst, even those totally new to SAS, to quickly learn about new projects and get up to speed so that they can start working with it as fast as possible. The base SAS functionality of SAS EG delivers when it comes to consistently handling large datasets and, for the most part, it's not too difficult to write custom code to do whatever you want to do with your data. If things are ever too much, SAS's technical support team is easy to contact and incredibly helpful with any problem. View full review »

Some of the tasks provided are really useful, such as "characterize data". This feature saved me a lot of time in the past years by providing me with a complete picture of a data table with just a few clicks. It is great for profiling data. View full review »
