There is a new version of this course. Please see SAS Federation Server: Accessing and Virtualizing Enterprise Data.
SAS Federation Server makes it easier for business users to access secure data for reporting and analysis. It provides a virtual layer or view, giving users the appropriate level of control without physically moving data. This frees up IT staff to focus on other tasks by giving them a simple method of sharing data using a centralized, governed security layer
The self-study e-learning includes:
Learn how to
- Annotatable course notes in PDF format.
- Virtual Lab time to practice.
- maintain, configure, and monitor data access from a single point of administration in a web browser interface
- create a virtualized data layer that unifies disparate data sources into a federated view providing federated data as a service (DaaS)
- improve data access performance by using database pushed capabilities, connection pooling, privilege access caching, and in-memory data caching capabilities
- provide centralized security of sensitive data using role-based data access for groups and users, along with data masking and encryption of personally identifiable information (PII)
- create and share SAS metadata with other SAS solutions for easier integration
- apply data quality functions such as standardization and parsing in federated views in a consistent form to support data governance initiatives
- leverage SAS In-Database technologies to run SAS DS2 code and analytical scoring model inside the database for improved performance.
