Leverage Our SAS Services at #SASGF 2018!
It’s that time of the year again! Analytics experts, service providers, enthusiasts, and many more are heading to the Mile-High City – Denver Colorado. Why? The annual SAS Global Forum is officially kicking off on April 8th until April 11th and as SAS Silver Partners, and providers of comprehensive SAS services, we are proud to be sponsors of the event this year.
Several members of our team will be in attendance – this includes our Managing Director, Michael Dixon, who will be at the venue on all four days, either at our booth on the quad or sharing some of his years’ worth of SAS wisdom. Feel free to stop by our booth, at one of the breakout sessions, or in passing, and anyone from our team would be more than happy to chat with you.
Spoiler alert: We’ve also got our own little surprise for anyone who stops by, so be on the lookout for that if you will be attending or tell a colleague/friend who will be there about it!
With the conference just 2 days away, we’re sure all attendees are looking forward to it and hearing what SAS has planned for us. Here are a few things we are looking forward to the most.
Learning about all the new developments to SAS services for the remainder of the year
Last year’s forum introduced us to SAS Viya, which has transformed the analytics world in previously unimaginable ways. That’s precisely why our team is extremely interested in hearing what’s in store for the new year and how we can improve our portfolio and delivery of SAS services to both our existing and future clients.
With so many partnerships being established around the world – almost every month – and more businesses increasingly leveraging SAS services, the sky truly is the limit for SAS.
Insights from the champion, Peyton Manning
Even if you aren’t a fan of American Football, having the opportunity to hear a world-class and champion athlete share his story and insights is undeniably great.
Celebrity appeal aside, we are especially interested in hearing how data and analytics helped drive his success as an NFL Most Valuable Player and Super Bowl Champion. It’ll be interesting to hear how much of an impact analytics leveraged through SAS services can drive the success of all kinds of businesses and organisations – including those in the sporting world – from a leading athlete himself.
The charity activity – Encouraging curiosity and a love for learning in young students
It’s always great to see good come out of the work we do and the world we live in. The Resource Area for Teaching (RAFT) unit based in Denver deserves a lot of credit for this incredible initiative that is fostering curiosity and a love of learning within students in the community. The core goal of this initiative is to help educators change a child’s learning experience through hands-on education items collected from the community. RAFT re-purposes materials as creative tools for teaching science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) – with the goal of inspiring the next generation of thinkers, innovators, problem solvers, and creators.
Meeting you at our booth, in breakout sessions, and around town!
One of our favourite things about coming to the Global Forum (in addition to the new announcements) is the opportunity to speak with like-minded individuals who have the same burning passion for analytics that we do. All conversations we’ve had at previous forums were full of great insights and new, thought-provoking approaches that we’ve been able to leverage in one way or another to benefit how we service our clients.
That’s why, this time, with the goal of making our booth one of the most engaging ones on the quad, we’re going to have free giveaways and a raffle draw with an awesome prize – the raffle winner will be announced on the final day of the forum. Stop by our booth to find out what the prize will be!
While you’re at our booth, feel free to ask us about our variety of SAS services, from SAS Installation to SAS administration to both SAS 9.4 and SAS Viya Hosting. We’d love to talk to you about how we’ve helped businesses and organisations, both in Australia and around the world, leverage their SAS services for the best possible insights, highest returns, and massive cost-savings.
Our position as SAS Silver partners allows us to provide our clients with a lot of valuable services and benefits, If you would like to know more about where we’ll be at the conference, who you could meet with, and how you could reach out to us, feel free to visit our website, drop us an email or give us a call. You could also read up on how we can install, administer, and host your organisation’s own SAS environment prior to meeting with us – we’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.
