Version 9.1 - Now It Gets Interesting Parts I and II

by Paul Kent

The bulk of the new functionality delivered with SAS Version 9.0 were improvements to software you already had. Version 9.1 is where the revolutionary new components begin. Paul will cover improvements, enhancements and new features in existing products (base SAS, CONNECT, SAS MDDB Server, SHARE, and SPDS) in Part I.

Part II will be a presentation of the enterprise level features of the new 9.1 Business Intelligence Platform

- portal based

- web reporting

- integrated metadata.

The latter is an important concept to SAS as it represents the platform that they are building all their new solutions on (and they hope customers will too).


Paul Kent is Senior Research and Development Director, Base SAS Research. Paul leads a team of over 160 people who create base SAS and other SAS software products, such as SAS/CONNECT, SAS MDDB Server, SAS/SHARE, and SPDS.

Paul joined SAS in 1984 as a Technical Marketing Representative and eventually moved into the Research and Development division. He has used SAS for more than 20 years and has made many contributions to the software, including PROC SQL, the WHERE clause, TCP/IP connectivity, and portions of the Version 8 Output Delivery System (ODS).

Prior to joining SAS, Paul worked with SAS software at Decision Support Services in Johannesburg, South Africa.


SAS/Microsoft Office Integration and SAS Internet-Enabled OLAP Reporting for the Financial, Telecommunications and Pharma-ceutical Industries

by George Bukhbinder

SAS on-line analytical processing (OLAP) and Microsoft pivot tables are traditionally used for the Internet-enabled information delivery from data warehouses. This presentation addresses several factors important to the successful implementation of OLAP based on SAS multidimensional databases. We will also outline programming techniques required for creating Microsoft pivot tables and complicated Excel reports directly from SAS.

The presentation includes a demonstration of Internet-enabled OLAP used as an interface to a data warehouse and describes the business benefits of building a powerful decision support system using examples from the telecommunications and insurance industries. In addition, we will use several examples from the system developed for occupation health management to demonstrate reporting based on the integration of SAS and Microsoft Office. We will compare three different OLAP methods, based on (1) SAS multidimensional databases, (2) SAS summary tables, (3) Microsoft pivot tables.


George Bukhbinder is the President of Palisades Research, Inc. He has over 20 years of experience in database design and development, statistical modeling and profitability optimization. He has worked extensively on the development and implementation of information systems for marketing support, strategic and financial planning, and web-enabled on-line analytical processing. He is a regular speaker at major national conferences.
