SAS Studio is a web based interactive development environment for creating and running SAS workflows. Users can string together predefined tasks to generate SAS code. Programs or tasks can be run from SAS Studio and the underlying SAS code will execute on a SAS server. This server could be in a cloud or local environment. After the code is processed, the results are returned to SAS Studio. Jobs can be scheduled to run at any time. Users can code and execute Python scripts from within SAS Studio’s code editor interface or add Python steps to a workflow. SAS is geared towards programmers and data scientists as its user base.
