About delivering forecasting results to clients

Hi All,

 

    I have a quick question. After the forecasting at forecast server, usually how will you deliver the forecast result to clients? Do they need to log to the forecast server to see the result?

 

Thank you!

Jade

All results in Forecast Server are contained in SAS data sets. As long as your client can consume SAS data sets, there is no need to access the applications. You can also create costum reports for the clients. Again, the results will be saved to SAS data sets. You can convert the SAS data sets to various other formats, such as excel spreadsheets, with PROC EXPORT if your client does not have a way to read SAS data sets.

All results are saved under the folder where the Client is installed.

Here is an example of the folder path: C:\SAS\Config\Lev1\AppData\SASForecastServer14.1\Projects\$Project_name$\hierarchy

 

Where $Project_name$ is the name of the project that you want to check for results. Results are stored by each level in the hierarchy.
