SAS Data Integration Studio
SAS Data Integration Studio is a visual design tool that enables you to consolidate and
manage enterprise data from a variety of source systems, applications, and technologies.
This software enables you to create process flows that accomplish the following tasks:
extract, transform, and load data for use in data warehouses and data marts
cleanse, migrate, synchronize, replicate, and promote data for applications and
business services
SAS Data Integration Studio enables you to create metadata that defines sources, targets,
and the processes that connect them. This metadata is stored in one or more shareable
repositories. SAS Data Integration Studio uses the metadata to generate or retrieve SAS
code that reads sources and creates targets in physical storage. Other applications that
share the same repositories can use the metadata to access the targets and use them as the
basis for reports, queries, or analyses.
Through its metadata, SAS Data Integration Studio provides a single point of control for
managing the following resources:
data sources (from any platform that is accessible to SAS and from any format that is
accessible to SAS)
data targets (to any platform that is accessible to SAS, and to any format that is
supported by SAS)
processes that specify how data is extracted, transformed, and loaded from a source
to a target
jobs that organize a set of sources, targets, and processes (transformations)
source code generated by SAS Data Integration Studio
user-written source code, including legacy SAS programs
For more information, see the SAS Data Integration Studio Help, which is available
from within the product, and the SAS Data Integration Studio: User's Guide, which is
available at http://support.sas.com. For information about administrative tasks associated
