Read/Write Delta using SAS Enterprise Guide / SAS Viya Hi everyone, Does anybody know if there is a way to read/write from/to delta lake using the analytics tools SAS Enterprise Guide and/or SAS Viya?

Thanks @JosephK (exDatabricks). If I'm not missing something here, the links mostly refer to using Databricks as "_translator_"/"_intermediary_" (via ODBC/JDBC) to access Delta Lake. However, I'm looking for a way to interact with OSS Delta Lake folders residing in cloud storage directly.

I mean, you don’t use SAS if you want to do anything modern or open source. I met someone who tried to work at SAS with a focus on open source integrations and he quit because it was an exercise in futility.

Totally agree; and I don't want to use it 😉 Unfortunately SAS has dug it's teeth deep into the company I'm working for, over centuries. We are trying to loosen the vendor lock-in but it's hard to break out when you can't offer viable transition scenarios for the SAS fanbase.
