SAS® ODS Technology for Today's Decision Makers (50 minutes)

Have you ever wondered why there has been so much excitement about ODS ever since it was introduced? How does ODS significantly enhance the presentation quality of reports and create files that were never before possible from SAS? Have you ever thought about how ODS can directly improve your daily activities and what it actually has to offer you as a programmer, statistician or manager?

If you have ever had any of these questions about ODS, then this presentation is for you because it provides something for everyone at all levels. As a programmer, you can now create most any file types directly from SAS. In addition, the level of control and flexibility to format the output enables a higher degree of customization. As a statistician, you will want to take advantage of ODS for more efficient data analysis. The tools available in ODS facilitate multiple iterations of an analysis and ease of locating significant results. As a manager, you have various options to view and analyze your data and reports. Managers can access any SAS Procedure result or output as excel files for further review and understanding of the data with ODS's latest technology. This paper includes selected new features of SAS version 9.1.3.
