On-Demand Webinar

Think Different in a Digital World

Why intelligent decisioning is necessary to meet customer demands in 2020


About the webinar

Covid-19 is a once-in-a-generation crisis that is defining the new normal, presenting organisations with their greatest test; adapting to instability. All are affected, yet those able to pivot and tack faster will invariably claim the wins. The focus is on the intermediate term, which makes timing crucial. Now, more than ever, firms need to be able to access and leverage the right data at the right time in order to meet changeable demand.

However, with continued flux in consumer demands, geopolitical (in)stability, and a rising cyber-security threat, all transformation can easily be derailed. The route to success is anything but clear. 

Join us to learn how SAS are helping large organisations navigate these fundamental challenges with expert advice and real-life experience.

  • Understand what you can do best to manage results in the intermediate term
  • Learn more about effective resource allocation during this crisis
