Introduction to SAS and Hadoop
There is a new version of this course. Please see Introduction to SAS and Hadoop.
This course teaches you how to use SAS programming methods to read, write, and manipulate Hadoop data. Base SAS methods that are covered include reading and writing raw data with the DATA step and managing the Hadoop file system and executing Pig code from SAS via the HADOOP procedure. In addition, the SAS/ACCESS Interface to Hadoop methods that allow LIBNAME access and SQL pass-through techniques to read and write Hadoop Hive table structures are discussed in this course. Although not covered in any detail, a brief overview of additional SAS and Hadoop technologies, including executing DS2 in Hadoop with the SAS Code Accelerator for Hadoop and using Hadoop data sources for the distributed in-memory analytics platform of SAS Viya, is included. This course is included in the Expert Exchange on Hadoop: Using SAS/ACCESS service offering to configure SAS/ACCESS Interface to Hadoop or SAS/ACCESS Interface to Impala to work with your Hadoop environment.Learn how to
