How useful is it to use Risk Finance Workbench (RFW) to run SAS programs in a production environment? What advantages would it have over SAS Enterprise Guide? Or would it be better to run in batch mode?
I don't have experience with work bench, but since you ask specifically I assume you have, and should be able to tell the pros and cons. The question itself sounds a bit odd to me. What is your requirements and constraints when running in production? Are the processes highly automated? If yes, batch is preferred and usually best maintained in a scheduler (some of them you can partly control from SAS Management Console).
