Doing good while doing well
In past issues of sascom, we’ve told feel-good stories about customers using SAS to save endangered species, increase funding for wildlife programs, improve local recreation areas – and much more.
In this issue, you’ll continue to read how business intelligence technologies can be used for the public good: enhancing education, aiding developing countries, improving budgets for public agencies and managing corporate green initiatives.
