Description

This course is simplified into four main areas such as:

  • Data Preparation
  • Data Structuring
  • Data Visualization¬†
  • Optimizing code

This course is mainly designed for absolute beginners. It equips you with the cutting-edge tool used in many industries such as Pharma, Finance and Insurance areas.

Data Preparation will teach you how to import data from multiple sources, create new variables and SAS functions which goes behind the scene in SAS databases.

Data Structuring will help you to transform data to a new level by merging and joining multiple databases together or sorting or transposing.

Data Visualization will propel you further into the area of data analytics and obtaining insightful inferences from the inside data.

Optimizing code will take you to the macro programming which teach you to code professionally and elegantly.
