Using SAS® Grid Manager and SAS® Enterprise Guide® in a Global Pharmaceutical Environment

Amgen, like most large biotechnology companies, uses SAS® software to support the drug discovery process. Equipped with a vision to maximize IT investments, Amgen developed a SAS-based research information infrastructure that supports 1,500 programmers and statisticians spread across three continents. This paper details many aspects of Amgen's SAS Analytical Platform project including business justification, requirements, design, validation and production migration. You'll learn about the challenges Amgen faced and how those were overcome using improved processes, modern technologies such as SAS® Grid Manager, SAS® Enterprise Guide® and SAS/STAT®, and the combined efforts of a global project team.
