CSCS have made SAS and STATA applications available to studies within the SDHS. These applications have been made available to allow users to perform data management and data cleansing operations on datasets within the SDHS.
The solution provided by CSCS is not suitable for extensive computational work.
If any user is found to be using the hosted applications for intensive operations, CSCS will contact the user in the first instance to ask them to adapt their processes. If intensive workloads continue to be initiated, then the user access to the resources will be removed.
To use either application, the nominated user must fulfil the following requirements:
You must be a user of the SDHS.
You must have a licence for STATA 14 or newer
Your licence must be for STATA IC, SE or MP.
Your licence must not be currently installed on more than 2 machines (unless it explicitly allows multiple machines)
If the licence is Annual, then the licence must be in date
Documentation proving that you are a currently licensed user is required to be submitted with your application. A screen capture of the STATA About page is acceptable.
TBC - We are waiting on written confirmation from SAS that we are able to offer this application.
