Hello,

Not sure if this is the right forum. Anyway

Is SAS Access to Oracle from mainframe still supported?

or better yet... would it be recommended ?

I am against the idea but want to double check anyway 

 

Thank you

Hi @shikoulitz 

 

You can find this information in the SAS Systems Requirements. I have created a SAS Communities article to help guide people through the process.

Here is the Systems Requirements doc for ZOS.

The answer to your question is "yes" it is still supported. Not sure about the recommended portion of your question, but if you need to access Oracle from the mainframe I would recommend it.

 

Best wishes,
Jeff
