SAS/Access

SAS/Access is well suited for companies who need to manipulate and analyze large databases and data-sets. It does the same thing as SQL, and if you already know basic SAS coding it is easier to pick up. SAS/Access works well with analyzing data from multiple data-sources at once, including large databases stored in external and virtual environments like Hadoop. Data can be easily reassembled from relational databases for use by the user. SAS/Access is not necessary if you are only pulling data from one database that you have the physical file for.

Striim

Below samples are the well suited use cases;- Change data capture feature seamlessly works on popular RDMS. You can make enrichments on several data sources within the same Striim application.- You can install stand alone agents and start streaming log files to Striim servers. This is mainly useful for security operations or audit trail use cases.

Striim

  • GoldenGate Trail reader which iss faster than Oracle CDC. It does not used logminer, hence there is no load on source Oracle database.
  • Easy installation and upgrade in 5 minutes
  • Support is very good. Fast and user friendly.

I have always received excelled service working with SAS technical support. Additionally, the tool is used so widely that there are many online resources and use cases that allow you to see many other uses or support routes.

Alternatives Considered

SAS/Access

Datastage might be the closest one. Being a full ETL tool, it's weird to compare both. Datastage might be more robust for extraction but it lacks the simplicity that the end users need for everyday data extract and analysis.

Striim

Faster, checkpointing better. CDC works well. The loading is faster. Easy upgrade and installation. Uses less resource.
