Make the most of your SAS applications by taking advantage of metadata that is stored in a SAS Metadata Repository. You'll learn how to use the metadata engine to integrate your organization's metadata with your organization's physical data. This title explains how you can use the metadata engine as a single point of access to heterogeneous data sources without having to be aware of the engine-specific details; compares processing data using the metadata engine versus using a specific engine directly; explains how an administrator can control what data others are allowed to access; provides the SAS Metadata Model requirements in order to access metadata with the metadata engine; provides metadata requirements in order for the metadata engine to construct a LIBNAME statement for the underlying engine; and provides complete reference for the LIBNAME statement for the metadata engine as well as the data set options for the metadata engine. This title is also available online. This title is intended for users who have previous experience with SAS and have knowledge of SAS Open Metadata Architecture, including the SAS Metadata Server and a SAS Metadata Repository.
