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!

Reflecting on the 2017 Metacoda journey. Wishing you peace, joy & love.

Metacoda Christmas 2017

As 2017 ends and the festive season approaches we want to wish peace, joy and love to you and your families. We hope your 2017 reflection is one of success and happiness.

In thinking about the year – and the 10 years Metacoda has been operating – Paul and I feel very humbled to reflect on the benefits our customers have shared with us, and our contribution to the SAS community. In gives us great joy to contemplate where we were 11 years ago – brainstorming the plug-ins and tools – to where we are today. We’d like to thank our team, customers, partners, and friends for your support and alliance, and we look forward to continuing the Metacoda journey together in 2018.

As Colonel Chris Hadfield said at SAS Global Forum in April, “Love every step along the way. Life is not about your grand mission statements, it’s about what you do next”…

Happy Holidays!

Cheers,
Michelle

Here’s what 72 SAS admins told us…

At Metacoda we like to know as much as possible about how SAS admins work, so that we can better plan our business and products to best meet your needs.

And what better way to find out than by simply asking?

So in October we ran a SAS® Administrator Survey on Metadata Security.

A huge THANKS to everyone who filled in the survey, giving us a really useful set of information and comments.

In total we had 72 responses, with an average completion rate of 92%, and a typical fill-in time of about 2 minutes and 20 seconds.

The survey was conducted using SurveyMonkey where they’ve analyzed the results and produced the following charts. <side note>Naturally, there was a temptation to do the analysis in SAS and to create a SAS Visual Analytics dashboard.</side note>

As promised, here’s a snapshot of the results (anonymous, of course). Read more
