Re: SAS Enerprise Guide on Citrix server

It depends on Citrix and your connection speeds.  Probably why you're seeing variable reviews.

I've never worked with SAS EG via Citrix but other software and that's always been the case. In a urban center with superfast network speeds it was workable, a bit of a lag always but not a huge issue. I did change my working style, ie coding on editor in current window and copying and pasting it.  Point and Click apps such as Word and Excel were definitely slower.

Working with it on a slow internet connection was rarely worth my time, I would wait until I went into the office.
