More new features are on the way for SAS Data Management offerings. The Data Management Platform will move to version 2.7.1 on June 21, 2017.


The following SAS Data Management software offerings will deliver the new version of Data Management Platform upon initial installation or upgrade.

  • SAS Data Management Advanced
  • SAS Data Management Standard
  • SAS Data Quality Advanced
  • SAS Data Quality Standard
  • SAS Data Governance
  • SAS MDM Advanced
  • SAS MDM Standard
  • SAS Data Management Desktop

Here is a summary of the main new features:

  • SAS has updated the ODBC database drivers bundled with this product so that users can access the latest versions of various relational databases.
  • As mandated by the United States Postal Service, USPS DataPack security encoding has changed from SHA-1 to SHA-256. Note that starting in August 2017, customers using this functionality will need to apply a hot fix to their Data Management Platform environment, even if they don’t chose to upgrade to version 2.7.1. See the SAS Note on this topic for more information.
  • The third-party address verification engine for non-US and non-Canadian addresses has been updated.
  • For enhanced performance and improved capacity to handle very large data jobs or profiling jobs, 1 GB of additional memory is available to SAS Data Management Studio.
  • SAS can deliver better USPS address verification results through a “cardinal rule” change for non-CASS processing.
  • This release reintroduces standard deployment plans that were removed because of QKB incompatibility in a previous release.
  • Several SAS Data Management Platform repository scenarios have been validated for the following updated database versions: Oracle 12c, DB2 11.1, and Microsoft SQL Server 2016.
  • Several hot fixes delivered since the last full software release are included with this version along with some critical fixes for Surviving Record Identification processing, undefined variables in process jobs, and large job load handling on Data Management Server.
  • As usual, we took this opportunity to fix several minor defects and incorporated hot fixes that have already been made available through our Technical Support team.

Though not a major update to Data Management Platform, these new features should continue to keep your data management professionals productive well into the future.
