connections. For developers: less complexity SAS only contains datasets that are used for reporting. All data staging is done outside of SAS. For users: a leap forward in reporting There were dozens of reports that were going to tools that were hard to access, or didnt excel very well. CONFIDENTIAL & PROPRIETARY Vecima Networks Inc.
