    5258 I really like your metadata tools. As a SAS consultant I help my customers by developing metadata applications.

    5258 We have been using Metacoda for several years at client sites and can testify that it is a great investment!

Key features for us include being able to automatically generate documentation and having a metadata security testing framework that instantly identifies changes in the SAS metadata security model. Gregory Becquembois, SAS Expert, Decision Network

David Shannon, Technical Director, Amadeus Software

    5258  The Metacoda Plug-ins are an essential add-on to SAS Management Console. They provide a quick and easy way to drill into objects and user permissions. The Metacoda Metadata Security Testing Framework allows us to compare objects permissions between two SAS environments, which is particularly useful when upgrading SAS Software. I would recommend Metacoda Plug-ins to any organization that is looking at managing their SAS metadata security in a more efficient and easy-to-use way.
    Wisam Abdelaziz, Systems and Database Administration Manager, BioGrid Australia
    5258  After using the Metacoda Security Plug-ins for just a short while, I can tell it would be impossible to go back to living without them. They just make it all so easy! I absolutely LOVE the Security Plug-ins and Testing Framework.
    Jake Roman, SAS Administrator, Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education

5258  I have been an early adopter and a fan for the Metacoda Security Plug-ins. I am a believer of this tools efficacy and as well as its importance. In spite of just abstract write up, I would like to provide an example of the usefulness of this utility. As recently as last week, one of our large Fortune ranked client needed to fill in the gaps identified by its internal IT audit. The resource and effort this project warranted was a significant hurdle in terms of not only operations but an ongoing build out of the SAS environment. To the rescue, Metacoda. Not only this plug-in produced in minutes what the current setup and snap shot of the security model was but also provided additional reports that the company’s internal auditor appreciated but senior management approved budgetary resources to fill in the gaps, audit identified as well as those it did not foresee. To me this is one of the best example of this tools usefulness. Rafi Sheikh, SAS Administrator & CEO, Analytiks International

  • 5258  As a consultant at many organisations, I highly recommend the use of the Metacoda Security Plug-ins to aid in the timely resolution and reporting of all SAS security metadata issues. From auditing to troubleshooting, the tool dramatically reduces the time taken to provide solutions to sometimes difficult permissions based problems. Ease of installation and great value licensing makes this a “must have” tool for SAS Platform Administrators. Bob Whitehead, SAS Administrator, Finelink Nominees
    5258  Metacoda has proven to us that it is a very helpful tool that will provide security and authorization issues quick. It is not necessary to describe all authorizations and securities. We use Metacoda for that. It is easy to provide an overview with all authorizations en securities to other stakeholders such as the auditing department. And more important, it is an overview that is easy to understand. Metacoda makes “the security, authorization and administrating life” a lot more comfortable. Leon Jager, SAS Data Integration and SAS Platform Administrator, Ministerie van Economische Zaken
    5258  Metacoda Plug-ins provide a powerful set of features and functionality not available within SAS Management Console. Every major aspect of security can be analyzed and audited, giving the SAS platform administrator 100% confidence in their security model. I highly recommend for every SAS implementation. Stephen Overton, Founder & CEO, 6 Degree Intelligence
    5258 The Metacoda Security Plug-ins has been great for SAS metadata analysis. It saves time and allows several perspectives of analysis in rapid succession. Tony Blanch, Data Warehouse Manager - SAS BI, University of Newcastle
  • 5258  Statistics Canada, which has a very extensive collection of SAS servers and metadata environments, spent several months investigating the Metacoda Security Plug-ins, after learning about the product at SAS Global Forum. There was no doubt that Metacoda would be an excellent addition to our product suite; it provides enhanced information to the metadata administrators, and reduces the time spent managing servers. We acquired the product, and have been very pleased with it in production. Tom Kari, Independent SAS BI consultant, Tom Kari Consulting
    5258  Metacoda Security Plug-in: a must-have in every SAS (metadata) environment. Ralf Vaessen, Business Intelligence consultant, APG

    5258  I’ve read the Metacoda Plug-ins user guide from cover to cover, and I’m impressed. Even non-SAS users like me can see the benefits! Cleve Killiby, Principal, Killiby Communication
    5258  It would be great if this was a SAS Management Console default plug-in – without it is like flying an aircraft with no instruments on a dark moonless night! As a passenger would you feel secure? Ivor Moan, Senior BI Systems Architect, Verivox GmbH
