Accessible Analytics using SAS
Breakfast Session for OPS
Friday, May 11 | The SAS Canada Building
Registration: 8:30 a.m. – 9 a.m.
Presentations: 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
To fully realize the value of your investment in analytics, you must share analytical insights so people can make informed decisions. You want to share those insights using modern technology including interactive charts, graphs, maps, and other data visualizations. However, there is a strong impetus to ensure people with disabilities also have equal access to those insights. Is it possible to do both?
Please join Ed Summers, Director of Accessibility, and Jesse Sookne, Senior User Experience Designer, for an interactive discussion. Ed and Jesse will share innovative reporting technology that empowers people with disabilities to access analytics like never before. In addition, the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care using SAS for reporting and visualization will share their story on how and why SAS was chosen as an analytics partner. We will also review examples of ministry reports and discuss how they are enabling data driven decisions in the Ops.
