At SAS Explore, which was held in Las Vegas in September 2023, the future of SAS 9 was clarified in https://blogs.sas.com/content/sasdummy/2023/09/29/sas-9-and-sas-eg/.
- SAS 9.4M8 will be supported until Jan2028.
- There will be future releases of SAS 9, so it will be supported well beyond Jan2028.
- SAS Studio will continue to be the best environment for SAS Viya.
- However, Enterprise Guide will soon be able to access both SAS 9 and SAS Viya.
Want to become a VIEWS Consultant? Could you write a short article about SAS Viya, SAS VA or other SAS-related topic for VIEWS News 66? All published authors will become VIEWS Consultants, unpaid, but internationally respected.
VIEWS News 66 (2021Q4) is scheduled for publication in November 2021, so I’m looking for short articles to include in this newsletter. Although I have written articles for the newsletter in the past, it is really intended to showcase your ideas, and not mine! Amongst the topics not seen in the recent issues are:
- SAS Viya
- SAS VA
- SAS Metadata
- Animated graphics
- SAS servers
- SAS in the Cloud, like AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, etc.
- or many other SAS-related topics
If you have anything suitable, then please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org before 14 November 2021. I look forward to seeing what you can send to me.
