SAS Data Integration and Architecture

Two of the greatest challenges businesses face in the information age is how to manage their data and how to keep track of all the data transformations that occur between the source systems and the analytical data sets interrogated by analysts.

It is extremely important that the analysts have a clear understanding of what the data they are investigating represents, even subtle differences between the analyst's understanding of the data and the actuality can make their conclusions irrelevant.

The SAS solution to this problem is to build up comprehensive Metadata. SAS's tool for impelemnting this solution is DI Studio.
