UAE Government SAS Visual Analytics User Roundtable 2017

21 February 2017 | Dubai


Why attend

Government Agencies in the Middle East region are in various stages of maturity of their data, digital and analytical intelligence, however one thing that is common is that every organization has commenced its journey in that direction. As the United Arab Emirates and its forward thinking leadership have long recognized the importance of innovation and the primary role it plays in economic progress, it is our common mandate to drive this transformation. As a SAS Visual Analytics user, you are the flag bearer for digital disruption and data driven innovation in your agency or ministry, and our role at SAS is to support and inspire your next data strategy.

SAS invites you to attend the UAE Government SAS Visual Analytics User Roundtable 2017, where we aim to give you an opportunity to learn about the advancements in your preferred analytics and data visualization tool, hear breakthrough ideas from SAS Experts and data scientists, network with your peers within other UAE Government agencies and learn from their experiences.
