    R (programming language) vs SAS opinions
    Most users think R (programming language) is a great alternative to SAS.

    Need to recode completely.

    Does not have anything like the output delivery system (ODS).

    The documentation is highly variable and in some cases, to determing the processing steps it is necessary to read the source code.

    Only real alternative supporting SAS language, no need to rewrite existing applications, user interface is really nice, mix SAS language with python and R languages, inclusive data connectivity, attractive and flexible pricing.

    WPS really is an alternative. No other alternative is able to run programs written in the SAS language. WPS can combine different programming languages in one program so R and python can be mixed with SAS language offering the best of all worlds for data scientists and business users. No other alternative supports such a broad range of platforms including mainframes.
