Diving Deeper: How Many Ways Can You Join SAS® Tables?

On-Demand • Cost: Complimentary

About the webinar

Why join data?

IT systems seldom store all data in one massive table, because that would result in extreme maintenance costs for the IT department.

Instead, tables tend to be split up into smaller entities, hence the business need for joins – a means to access two or more tables to help answer business questions.

In this webinar, you’ll see various join algorithms and comparisons between them.

This webinar is Part 2 in our series, in which we turn our attention to the ways in which joins can be processed via SQL.

You will learn about:

  • SQL implicit join.
  • SQL explicit join.
  • FEDSQL join in SAS® Viya®.

This webinar is the second in a two part series. To register and watch part one click here.
