Evolve Your SAS® Administration Skills with SAS® Viya®
Released in 2016, SAS Viya is the newest evolution in the SAS Platform, offering the latest high-performance analytics. SAS Viya brings a fundamental change to the SAS Platform, which has led to changes in how the platform is administered. As an experienced SAS9 administrator, the thought of having to deal with these changes seemed daunting, especially since learning that there is no metadata or SAS Management Console in SAS Viya. Fortunately, SAS Viya has been designed with the administrator in mind. A single web administration user interface, SAS Environment Manager, an HTML5 web application, centralizes the administration tasks.
This paper provides examples of common administration tasks in SAS Viya by relating them to the corresponding tasks in SAS 9. By comparing these tasks, administrators familiar with SAS 9 will not only gain confidence with SAS Viya but will also see the benefits that SAS Viya can offer them.
The intended audience for this paper is SAS 9 administrators who are interested in learning about SAS Viya 3.4 on both Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems.
