Many organisations see data as the most valuable and protected resource. Among the features that vividly characterise the data within an enterprise is that business users source, change, manage and store data independently, simultaneously or at different times, once and for all or over and over again.

If you use SAS, have you ever wondered if modern Web 2.0 technologies can be combined with SAS data sets? How to make dynamic graphs, so that users can explore the data in an intuitive way, without any prior SAS knowledge? In this demo, we will show how to transform a boring data set, such as sashelp.stocks into an attractive chart that allows the user to review any time period, zoom in and out and export the graph as an image.Read more
