The institution where I work is going to discontinue SAS. SAS Viya is not an option because I have very large datasets that I continue to use, but infrequently, which would be very expensive. Does anyone know if there is some agency that someone can join, to have access to SAS 9.4 through them? Thanks.
Just curious, are you talking about PC SAS (Display Manager), or SAS 9 on a server?
I would think (hope) for PC SAS, the academic pricing would be cheap enough for a University that they would keep it. But I guess for a a server between the licensing costs and people to manage the server, the cost may be notice-able.
In any case, if you work as part of a group for an institution / team that has given up on SAS, you should probably think twice about whether you want to the only person left using SAS, and whether it's sustainable.
