SAS Health Check
SAS House Cleaning and Governance
Storing large amounts of data over time can be challenging. SAS users routinely make copies of databases, data marts, and data warehouses. Copies of corporate data are made on a monthly basis to maintain ‘point in time’ analysis, or multiple obsolete versions of programs are kept. These practices use unnecessary disk space that must be backed up nightly, and add to an environment not large enough for the additional storage.
Another common practice is the storage of code and data on spreadsheets, text documents and other files, which makes the identification and separation of SAS files difficult and time consuming.
Destiny Corporation has developed software tools to evaluate these files. Upon completion of our assessment, clients are given a report that identifies each SAS dataset, view, program, log, listing, and macro file. The file size, location, and date modified are also included. This is often done prior to SAS Migration projects.
We typically free between 50 to 500 terabytes of storage for our clients and have years of experience solving IT challenges. Call us today to learn more about our SAS House Cleaning and Governance service.
