If you want to use SAS to perform data analysis but want your data stored in the Parquet on-disk format rather than the traditional sas7bdat format, this presentation is for you. Parquet is an open source on-disk format that has been traditionally utilized in a Hadoop context but can exist outside a Hadoop cluster. Arrow is the in-memory variant of the associated technology. Both are columnar data stores and yield more efficient data query performance. For these reasons, Arrow/Parquet has gained popularity throughout the data analytics community. Learn about the Arrow/Parquet feature that you can use while continuing to conduct analysis with SAS.


Presentation slides are attached. See also Parquet Support in SAS Compute Server.
