SAS ADMINISTRATION FIXED PRICE, ALL YOU CAN EAT!

Our latest thoughts on SAS

Thumbs up SUNZ

Last week I attended the SUNZ AGM (Annual General Meeting) Networking Drinks in Auckland which was linked via Skype to the Wellington meeting. SUNZ is the official user group for New Zealand SAS users. It is dedicated to helping improve the experience of SAS users. I...

Attunity – A SAS administrators view

I recently attended a two-day training course on Attunity Replicate in the Optimal HQ training room in Wellington. I was surprised at the simplicity of Attunity's architecture and how similar it is to SAS. Attunity Replicate is generally installed on its own server...

SAS Admin – Restricting options

If you're a typical admin like myself you like to have a certain amount of control over your environment. Recently I started losing a little of that control so I asked SAS if I could have it back. After my first couple of searches, I got a hint from SAS Support that I...

Where are you Disk Quota – Windows 2008?

As part of my role as a ‘Preventer Of Chaos’ at OptimalBI I manage SAS Installations on multiple client sites. I am often kept on my toes (a good thing) with having to know things about the multiple Operating Systems that these SAS environments run on. I am no way an...

Sharing Your Analytics Journey – SUNZ 2016

The second technical session following lunch at SUNZ 2016 was by Joe Robins, Analytics Manager at KiwiBank. Joe nicely starts off with a joke about the earthquake in the earlier session. Joe is going to tell us why mountain biking and analytics are similar. The Huka...

The Analytics Of Purpose – SUNZ 2016

Session Two in the business stream of SUNZ 2016 brought us an insightful view into the purpose of analytics by Amanda Sterling. From art to analytics to art. While we were taken through the history of the arts and the Renaissance period and the growth of the...

Where was the SAS – SUNZ 2016

Once again I was fortunate to attend the National SUNZ one-day conference in Wellington. The event was well run (except for one slight timing glitch between the two streams), the food was good and the networking drinks were even better (mmm Beer). I understand the...

SAS Admin – LSF start and stop procedures

Generally, you should not have to start or stop LSF, unless you come across issues where a flow has completed but the state still says running, or you have made configuration changes. Starting and stopping the LSF services is very simple, but you can have a number of...

SAS Admin – Configuring access to SQL server

When I search for SAS Access to SQL Server I tend to find a lot of information on how to code my SAS script, what engine to use and some of the options available, but details on the configuration are few and far between. So, I thought I would write a blog about each...
