I see that there is SAS to ECL converter here http://hpccsystems.com/products-and-services/products/modules/sas-ecl-converter

But I can find absolutely no documentation about it. Would be great if someone can throw some more light on the tool.

Thanks,
-David

I've asked the developer of this tool to reply back with a little more information.

Thanks for posting the question!

Thanks for your interest in the SAS-ECL Converter!

The SAS-ECL Converter translates SAS code into syntactically correct ECL code that is semantically as close as possible to the original SAS code. The current version of the SAS-ECL Converter is intended for internal HPCC Systems use only, but we will be releasing an enhanced version -- with more features and a user-friendly interface -- to the public in Q2 2013.

Hi,
We are working on a data intensive computing solutions and having following questions on SAS capability in HPCC. It is quite attractive to see SAS capabilities. Can you please help on the following questions?
Is this converter available in enterprise edition now? Need some advice if the tools has capabilities on moving SAS statistical model to ECL with minimal or no manual fixes on converted code ? I am not from SAS background, one of the requirements is heavily depends this feature so any information on this would be appreciated.

Thanks
Durai

Durai,

SAS models can be converted to C++ or Java scoring code which can in turn be executed in HPCC. I believe that the conversion feature is available in SAS Enterprise miner.

Please feel free to reach back if you any further questions.

Thank You

Thanks for the details, Arjuna. I will check and revert.

Interim, can we use the converted C++ as embedded program. I am quite interested in learning the manual effort involved in this requirement. (SAS Models->ECL->HPCC Analytics->ROXIE Queries)

Durai,

Yes, it should be embeddable. I guess it also depends on the complexity of the scoring code.

Thanks
