SAS Video Accel

Amol Waykar (d-wise, Senior Consultant) and Andrew Miskell (Eli Lilly, Data Standards Consultant) highlight many of the challenges and processes companies may encounter while embarking on the journey of creating TFLs in R for the first time. In some cases the challenges are structural in nature (system and philosophical issues partially unrelated to coding). In others the challenges are based on different defaults which R has as compared with SAS or coding workarounds were written to ensure that R mirrors SAS behavior.

They cover the following topics:

  • the differences between the two languages
  • the best way to build a TFL with your individual business needs
  • how to proactively mitigate version and system issues that could arise
