I am facing some memory issues in execution of a SAS Job that deals with large amount of data. The issue is that the memory utilized by SAS exceeds the total amount of memory that is allocated in calling JCL.

The memory is allocated in work area as follows:

//WORK DD SPACE=(CYL,(4369,4369)),
// UNIT=(SYSDA),DATACLAS=DCMVOL,
// DCB=(LRECL=27648,BLKSIZE=27648,RECFM=FS,DSORG=PS)

Can some one please suggest how to allocate more memory for WORK area then allocated above. Should some more options be used in SPACE and UNIT?
Some options I have used:
REGION = 1024M
MEMLEAVE=256M
PROCLEAVE=(2M,2M)
SYSLEAVE=(512K,512K)

Honestly, you need to work with your SAS administrator -- there a difference between "WORK SPACE" and "SAS JOB-STEP MEMORY".

Also, you will gain more knowledge on this subject by reviewing the SAS companion document for z/OS, which is available at SAS support site.
