This thesis examines various alternatives of XML technology utilization in the SAS system, particularly in its BI reporting area. It describes methods for importing and processing data stored in XML format. Especially, it is focused on exporting data in the form of XML documents. In the first part, selected XML-based technologies and specifications are described briefly. Next, there is general description of the SAS system and its BI solution. Following, the essential part of the thesis provides detailed analysis of XML processing alternatives and comparison of their suitability for use in different situations according to current requirements. The thesis also considers possible extension of SAS reporting via third-party tools, which can be achieved using XML. In the final chapters, new reporting-related procedures are proposed in order to extend basic SAS facilities, namely for use with MS Office tools. These procedures are then applied on real-world data proving their practical usability.
