SAS Farm

I have heard a couple of times people using "SAS farm". Does anyone know what it is? Is it different than SAS EG?

 

Thank you

The term might also be a reference to a SAS Grid Computing environment -- multiple SAS servers working together to balance large compute loads or spread the work of many users across different machines.

Re: SAS Farm

They probably mean "Pharm", for pharmaceutical industry.

Re: SAS Farm

SAS when used in the Phamaceutical industry is sometime referred to as SAS 4 pharma.  Its not necessarily a product, although there is SAS Drug Development package, its mainly a way of using a SAS product for a given regulatory agency.

 

Either that or SAS have really branched out, haven't seen farmer Chris for a while Smiley Surprised)

Re: SAS Farm

I thought SAS Farm is a reference to the sheep used to manage the grass at SAS's two solar facilities
