The World Programming System (WPS) is a powerful and versatile platform for working with data. WPS software can run programs written in the SAS language.
The supported syntax covers core, statistical and graphing functionality, and makes it possible to run many applications written in the SAS language whilst the breadth of language support in WPS continues to grow.
WPS is a modular system. Each WPS module contributes additional features to the WPS software.
WPS can be used in a number of different ways:
WPS can read and write to many of the most commonly used data file formats, databases, data warehouses and Hadoop big data environments. It is capable of handling huge data volumes, wherever the processing occurs, be that on a mainframe, in a cloud, cluster, grid, server or workstation.
Workstations and Servers with multiple CPU cores or hyper-threading can take advantage of multi-threading support in WPS.
WPS is available on a wide variety of hardware and operating system platforms, including Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X, Linux (including for System z), AIX, Solaris and IBM Mainframe z/OS.
