Metacoda Plug-ins 3.0 R2

We’ve just released an update to our Metacoda Plug-ins software (3.0 R2) which includes support for use with SAS® Software version 9.3 M2. One of the new features SAS Institute have added to SAS 9.3 M2 are metadata bound libraries and tables for enhanced data security. This include some new metadata model types (SecuredLibrary and SecuredTable) and so our 3.0 release has been updated in R2 to provide access to these new metadata types. We would encourage all existing users of Metacoda Plug-ins 3.0 to upgrade to R2. This latest release can be downloaded by logging in from our support page.

If you are interested in experiencing, in your own SAS® environment, the productivity savings Metacoda Plug-ins can provide in managing your SAS metadata security, feel free to request an evaluation.

Some of the most significant new features available in our Metacoda Plug-ins 3.0 release and continued with R2 include: Read more

Metacoda at SAS Global Forum 2012

Metacoda Stand with Koalas

Metacoda enjoyed being a sponsor at SAS® Global Forum 2012 and having the opportunity to meet SAS users from around the world. Thanks for dropping by our Metacoda stand and seeing how our Metacoda Security Plug-ins can help you manage your SAS platform. The Metacoda koalas seemed popular and they certainly enjoyed being at the SAS Global Forum as you can see on our Facebook page and YouTube video.

For those people we didn’t get to see at our stand (or those that would like a refresher on what you did see) we have uploaded the rolling presentations as a YouTube playlist. Our current production releases support SAS 9.3, SAS 9.2 and SAS 9.1.3 platforms and the software demonstrated at the SAS Global Forum is our upcoming V3 release for use with SAS 9.3 and SAS 9.2. The new version will include 2 new explorers for effective permissions (Identity Permissions Explorer and Object Permissions Explorer). Please let us know if you are interested in becoming a beta tester for the V3 release.

There is more information about our plug-ins here. You can also request a free 30 day evaluation to try out the software with your own metadata in your own environment. If you have any other questions feel free to send us a message. We’d love to hear from you.

To quote one of our customers… “SAS metadata security requires careful planning and execution. Metacoda Security Plug-ins, with it’s unique birds-eye view, provide an ideal way to validate our security model once implemented. As we evolve our security model it’s comforting to know that we can get an instant overview of the results.” Ivor Moan, Verivox GmbH

We look forward to seeing you again at SAS Global Forum 2013 in San Francisco.
