Can SAS access to Cloud data?

Is that possible that SAS can access to the third party cloud data.  e.g.  SalesForce

Re: Can SAS access to Cloud data?

This question has been asked before on this community.  Here is the answer:

 

"Using SAS/ACCESS to ODBC is the only way you can currently access salesforce.com data.

 

Please contact Data Direct or Simba or salesforce.com themselves for the driver."

Re: Can SAS access to Cloud data?

A quick Google confirms there are ODBC drivers available for SalesForce. So as long as you have a network connection to the database from your SAS server plus SAS/ACCESS to ODBC installed and licensed and the SalesForce ODBC driver installed then in theory it should all just work.

 

BTW it shouldn't matter whether SalesForce is cloud-based or not as long as you have a working network connection from SAS.
