As you’ve probably gathered, we love connecting with the SAS community, especially our Metacoda customers!

If you haven’t already, please take a few moments to fill in our survey about your plans with SAS® Viya® and how Metacoda can help meet your needs.

So far, common survey themes include securing the SAS platform, and the value that Metacoda provides. So if you haven’t yet experienced Metacoda software, consider giving yourself the gift of a free trial after the holiday season.

Greetings to all and happy new year from the Metacoda team! We look forward to helping to make sure that 2020 brings you the confidence of a secure SAS platform.

Metacoda Survey about your SAS® Viya® plans

Don’t you just love finding that special tool that makes your life easier?

In the early 2000’s we found ourselves performing repetitive manual tasks to find metadata in our consulting work supporting SAS customers. We discovered there was a broad demand amongst other SAS platform administrators for improved access to metadata, and it would be mutually beneficial for the SAS community for us to become a SAS partner.

So in 2007, Metacoda was established as a SAS partner and we started work on developing Metacoda Plug-ins for the SAS 9 platform.

Since then, Metacoda has expanded around the world and we’ve continued to develop new software features to meet the needs of SAS customers. With the release of SAS Viya, we can see there are further opportunities to provide value-added tools on the SAS Viya platform. To assist us with our future product planning, please spend a few minutes to share your feedback, experiences and thoughts in a Metacoda Survey about your SAS Viya plans.

Many thanks in advance!
