You can start with the sticky in this part of the Forum: http://www.zmainframes.com/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=37

To add in more - SAS, http://www.sas.com, was started as the product "Statistical Analysis Software". These days, SAS has grown to become almost a standard for report generation and data integration. There are many software products that can generate output data in native SAS-dataset format. In Mainframes SAS is heavily used along with CA's MICS product, Merills' MXG to process SMF records and to generate reporting on system usage, capacity planning, chargebacks etc.


Thanks,
Anuj

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort 8-)

Thanks ANuj and enrico-sorichetti.

enrico, google can give lots of those links but can not compare the experience of professionals like you. Sometimes you search the web and don't really get or a get a odd meaning of things, in such times it's better to understand things from experienced people from ground up and that's why I have asked here. In case that has bothered you, please forgive me.
