    You can run R, Python, Javascript and octave in Rapidminer. Further you can read in SAS data. Sas code is not excecuteable. I think this is also not possible because of licences.

    A solution might be to use excecute program to use sas from the command line?

    Yes you can.

    Here's two links I found for firing SAS scripts from the command line so you can use the Execute Program operator. 


    If you really want to write a SAS script in RapidMiner you can write it with Create Document and use macros to update any key variables during process runtime.  Then use Write Document to write the document to disk as a SAS file for execution in using SAS & the Execute Program operator. 

    Also look into WPS to try to save money on SAS licenses as it covers the majority of the language: http://www.teamwpc.co.uk/products/wps
    That way you can keep your SAS trained guys happy and your pre-written SAS scripts running within your RM workflow until you get round to updating them. 

    Hope that helps.  (I'm halfway through a longer blogpost detailing this, but am a little busy on other tasks, will try to get back to it as soon as I can).
