SAS Academics vs SAS University Edition

I have just started using SAS onDemand for Academics. The user experience is amazing! I was wondering whether there is any difference between this version of SAS studio vs SAS University Edition. The reason i am asking this question - Installing SAS UE is a little tricky especially if you are using 32 bit windows as compared to SAS Academics. Thanks!

Re: SAS Academics vs SAS University Edition

32 bit windows is pretty out of date, is it even supported by MSFT anymore?

 

Anyways, some differences:

 

  • License - SAS Academics on Demand has more modules available, see below. I'm not sure how many of these are actually available via AoD
  • Speed - SAS UE runs on desktop, while AoD is on the cloud. AoD may be slow depending on the workload - lots of users will slow things down. 
  • Data limitations - AoD has a limit on the size of the file uploaded, SAS UE does not
  • Data security - data for AoD lives on the cloud, SAS UE resides on your desktop. Programs are also in the cloud, not on desktop. More management will be required for this tool.

 

 

 

 

Dates are dependent on your sign up date. 

EDIT: These are available for me, your licenses may vary based on the courses/authorizations you have. Check your own using

 

proc setinit;
run;
