Join SUGA Live live!

Finding creative ways to connect is part of what makes our global SAS community so vibrant and strong. As highlighted in our March newsletter, we’ve seen a lot of changes to SAS Institute global events in recent years. Not having a SAS Global Forum (SASGF) this year may feel a bit like the end of […]

Ch Ch Changes

The saying ‘the only constant in life is change’ has certainly run true over the past two years. For us at Metacoda, we really miss seeing our customers, partners, and friends at physical SAS events. In particular, the annual SAS Global Forum (SASGF) was a wonderful way to unite, share and collaborate with the SAS […]

It’s almost SUGA Live time!

Firstly, we’d like to send you all a big belated happy SysAdmin Day (the last Friday of July)! Or, as we phrased it last year, Happy SASAdmin Day! Take a moment to appreciate SAS administrators around the world with this SAS Communities Happy Systems Administrators Appreciation Day post (featuring Rob Collum, Bala Arunagirinathan, Ronan Martorell, […]

Do your very own ‘Check one two’ of your SAS Platform!

Remember the sounds of roadies testing microphones with phrases like ‘Check one two, check, check’? Thinking about it probably conjures up the feelings of excitement and anticipation waiting for a live event to start (which – for most of the world – is a distant memory at the moment!). Or perhaps – being a new […]

‘Tis the season. Sending cuddly koala-ity vibes

The Metacoda koalas are sending cute cuddly koala-ity vibes to all our friends around the world. We’ve sure missed seeing you in-person this year, but we count our blessings that our strong and resilient SAS community has done such an amazing job of staying positive and connected via the virtual world. Here in Australia, the […]

A tasty SUGA concoction of eggs Florentine, Docker, Tandoori, HaaS and koalas!

I’ve always loved a good trivia quiz – the friendly competition, adrenalin and camaraderie – so it’s no surprise that I’m a big fan of the monthly SAS Bowl trivia events launched in August. Thanks to the SAS Communities management team for providing such uplifting events in a year when we need all the connection […]

A notable November for SAS fans and administrators

Whatever way you look at it, 2020 has certainly been a challenging and notable year, and November will no doubt be a particularly notable month for many. As we move towards the end of the year, we hope the coming year is a better one for us all. We note there are several SAS events […]

Keeping your SAS platform secure!

SAS platform security is essential in our data-driven world. Do you regularly monitor and test your SAS security model? With ongoing changes – such as increased adoption, department movement, and organization re-structure – how do you ensure your SAS platform stays secure and people only have access to the data assets they’re supposed to? Read […]

Don’t miss these SAS events in September (and the chance to help #SaveTheKoala)

Metacoda customers, partners and staff know very well the many benefits that Metacoda Plug-ins software can bring to an organization. But there’s still nothing quite like the buzz of introducing Metacoda Plug-ins software to someone for the first time, and hearing feedback like this: “The plug-ins are cool!! They easily help to identify all the […]

Tune in to SUGA Live on 23 September

We have many things on our minds at the moment, so in case you missed it, System Administrator Appreciation Day was on Friday 31st July. It’s never too late to show some appreciation to your Sys Admin (and to your SAS Admin since we like to also celebrate SASAdminDay). If you take a look at […]
