Hi, Rick -
We haven't spoken before this, I think, but I was looking over your 2013 Enterprise Bsuiness Intelligence paper:
having spoken to @@matt_hall at SAS Federal land @@ ahmed al attar, the client being the U.S. Census Bureau who still isn't fully committed to moving on from 9.2 to 9.4 -
so, Web Report Studio ad OLAP cubes in batch reign supreme 😞 for the time being
My question is a bit broader: would you say there has been enough progress with WRS integration to SAS VA solutions or can we(they) still squeeze some reporting functionality out of 9.2 while 9.4 migration/upgrade is going on?
Regards, Chad Caulkins
Thank you for your question. Just getting a chance to respond. The only integration point between SAS Web Report Studio (WRS) and SAS Visual Analytics is that you can load a LASR table based on an information map. As you likely know, WRS uses information maps as an abstraction to all data sources. There certainly is a great deal of functionality in VA that existed in WRS, and VA does many things that WRS did not. We recently added dynamic text in VA 7.4, which existed in WRS. We are planning to add more of the capabilities that WRS provides, such as measure placement in a crosstab.
WRS evolved in 9.3 and is fully supported on all maintenance release of SAS 9.4. I think customers still using WRS can certainly benefit from its reporting and OLAP capabilities while leveraging VA for other use cases where things like mobile delivery, visual discovery, and approachable analytics are important, to name a few.
