Description: The Statistical Analysis System (SAS)/SHARE software provides a multiuser client/server environment for SAS Systems. This technology provides concurrent update access to SAS data for local and remote users across an enterprise. SAS/SHARE enables users to consolidate multiple shared data libraries and manage and coordinate requests for data on a network in real-time.

SAS/SHARE acts as a hub between data and clients, serving clients with data from many different sources. SAS/SHARE Server provides data access to a requesting client for its data processing needs with a Database Management System (DBMS). This support extends to both SAS and external clients. SAS/SHARE uses the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)/Internet Protocol (IP) access method by default to establish client/server network connections. Users can implement third-party encryption services to protect data that is sent between operating environments across a network. SAS/SHARE is also a component of VA-supported SAS Base, which can store data in a variety of locations.

This technology does not utilize a database.
Technology/Standard Usage Requirements: Users must ensure their use of this technology/standard is consistent with VA policies and standards, including, but not limited to, VA Handbooks 6102 and 6500; VA Directives 6004, 6513, and 6517; and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, including Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS). Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
Section 508 Information: This technology has not been assessed by the Section 508 Office. The Implementer of this technology has the responsibility to ensure the version deployed is 508-compliant.
