Accessing SAS datasets - how to do it?

Highlighted
5 - Atom

Hello!

 

In my company all the data is storage in a SAS server, i'm a totally new user of alteryx and have no idea how to access the data. Also I'm not an expert in data bases nor other softwares that could help into it.

 

Is there any solutions? I've tried alteryx at my previus company but only with files that we had storaged in a HD.

 

Thanks!

Alteryx can read local SAS files (.sas7bdat) as seen here: https://help.alteryx.com/current/StatTransfer.htm

 

They have a REST API that you could technically pull from using the Download tool (https://developer.sas.com/guides/rest.html), although we do not have an out of the box connector at this time.

 

I would recommend using local sas7bdat files if you need to leverage SAS data as this will be the easiest approach for you.
