JAMS Job Scheduler handles any type of SAS® batch processing requirements.
SAS provides business intelligence solutions for IT management, human resource management, financial management, customer relationship management and more. SAS now has more functionality than just statistics, but its primary role is still statistical analysis. SAS is not a job scheduling system.
JAMS provides the SAS system with a complete batch automation framework. This ensures the analysis provided by SAS is delivered in a timely fashion, and allows SAS users to seamlessly integrate SAS with other mission critical processes. JAMS reduces the need for specific SAS expertise by automating SAS operations. This allows non-SAS users to query SAS statistics without requiring specific SAS knowledge.
There are two methods for having JAMS handle SAS processing:
- Using the Command Execution Method to process SAS executables.
- Creating a SAS execution method and keep the SAS program in the JAMS job definition.
In both methods, JAMS provides superior parameter handling capabilities. JAMS passes parameter values to a job by scanning the source for parameter names. Parameter handling is very simple and straightforward when using the SAS execution method because the SAS program is in the job. It is easy to put parameter references directly into the program.
