SAS Road2AI Singapore Summit

On their mission for success, organizations spend a lot of time and money to master the digital transformation. Executives are investing into Artificial Intelligence (AI) projects in the aim to keep their organizations innovative and ahead of the competition. Analysts rely on machine learning (ML) models to turn massive volumes of data into fresh insights and information. However, what the majority of them struggles with, is bringing all these efforts across the finishing line, missing out on the benefits of the much-needed insight and business impact from their analytics.

Are you aiming to make better decisions, grounded in trusted data and assisted by the power and scale of Analytics? When decisions happen at just the right moment, advancements are set in motion and the world moves forward. Join us at JW Marriott South Beach on Friday, April 17 2020 and find out, how operationalizing your analytics at scale will charge your decision processes and eventually becomes your winning formula.


Operationalizing Analytics
While organizations put considerable emphasis, investment and resources into the model development stage of the analytics life cycle, operationalizing the model is often overlooked. Learn about how SAS operationalizing analytics models can help organizations take action and gain value.

Customer Intelligence
Would your customers appreciate relevant, individualized experiences in real time? Learn how a unified, open analytics platform helps business engage with customers

AI & Machine Learning

Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT)
Sound decision making and real-time actions require valuable insights from IoT data. Learn how you can effectively extract valuable insights – from data to discovery to deployment.

Data Management,Compliance & Governance
One key to successful organizations is a solid data management strategy that includes the availability of new and varied data sources. Learn how to manage data with confidence, with the ability to monitor high-quality and produce analytics-ready data

Smart Decisioning
The ability to find, manage and deliver the right data in real-time is now the de facto assumption for modern analytics success. IT and business users can use current and historical operational data – informed by analytical models and governed by business rules – to jointly engineer and deploy operational decisions that automatically define real-time best actions at scale across thousands of daily decisions. From direct, customer-facing decisions to complex, cross-functional decisions in areas like manufacturing, you can be confident that enterprise decisions are efficient, effective and timely.

Organizations are learning how to unlock critical value from digital transformation by using the cloud. Learn how to create value, innovate and manage risk with software as a service, results as a service and deployment options for running analytics in new and modern ways (including containers and Kubernetes) on almost any private, public or hybrid cloud.

9:30 AM - 10:00 AMOperationalizing Analytics: Winning strategy to deliver Value with Analytics

Although organizations put considerable emphasis, investment and resources into the model development stage of the analytics life cycle, operationalizing the model is often overlooked. That can lead to project failure or increase the amount of time needed to deploy a model. As companies invest heavily in advanced analytic projects and assets, many don’t achieve the scale of value that was originally intended. The reason is that Operationalizing Analytics remain an unmastered skill and very manual process. Embedding analytic models into a business process and having the ability to update those models remains an arduous task for most companies. Learn how SAS has automated the Full Analytic Lifecycle and is bringing real value to your advance analytics. The power of AI and ML is real but cannot be fully realized unless these assets can be deployed and maintained with automation.

10:00 AM - 10:30 AMA Practical Approach to Trusted AI

Ethical debates about AI are raging all over the news, and executives are paying attention.

If CEOs live by the numbers, they also live by the reputation their organization projects in the market. When it comes to AI, both objectives can be addressed simultaneously by bringing governance, automation and oversight in the analytic lifecycle, from development to validation, deployment and on-going monitoring of models.

In this session, you will hear how to inject fairness, accountability, transparency and explainability in your AI projects and at the same time deliver on the promise to positively impact the bottom line.
