Great "how to" article Smiley Happy


What I miss is th "why".

I can see the obvious benfit to share SPDE data to non SAS users via Hive.

But what are the benifits compared to store the data directly into Hive?

I would love a matrix with different storage options and the relevant capailities/constraints.
