SAS Stored Processes

A Practical Guide to Developing Web Applications

Book Description:

Never before have there been so many ways to turn data into information and build applications with SAS. This book teaches you how to use the web technologies that you frequently see used on impressive websites. By using SAS Stored Processes, you will be able to build applications that exploit CSS, JavaScript, and HTML libraries and enable you to build powerful and impressive web applications using SAS as the backend.

While this approach is not common with SAS users, some have had amazing results. People who have SAS skills usually do not have web development skills, and those with web development skills usually do not have SAS skills.
