Apologies if this is already somewhere in the archives, but I couldn't
find a relevant reference.
I'm involved in a software evaluation process, and one of the things
that we are seeking to do is find independent benchmarking studies that
compare SAS performance with other software. Parameters that we're
interested in include speed and memory usage efficiency.
Ideally it would be a study that performed an identical set of
operations (loads, joins, sorts etc.) on the same hardware platform but
using different software packages. I appreciate that different
software goes about things in different ways, but wondered f anyone
knows of any such comparisons?
