From 'Islands of Analytics' to Enterprisewide Insights: 7 Prerequisites for Sustainable Analytics Success
Tuesday, March 7, 10:45 – 11:30 a.m. | Texas C, Level 3
Gahl Berkooz, Chief of Analytics, Global Connected Consumer Experience, General Motors
Gartner finds that two thirds of big data investments have yet to result in a deployment. Companies lack a path from analytics based on traditional ETL, to enterprise-wide analytics based on big data technology. Berkooz will share seven practices required for success of analytics at scale. These range from the business engagement model, to investments in data assets, and from an external engagement to technology architecture. Vendor partnerships will be discussed as well.
Self-Service Data Prep and Interactive Visualization
Tuesday, March 7, 1:15 – 1:35 p.m. | Solution Showcase Theater 1, Longhorn E, Level 1
Joseph Costin, Systems Engineer, Global Technology Practice, SAS
For analysts and data scientists, preparing data for analytics has long been the bane of their existence. Billions are the new millions, and with the explosion of Hadoop, this effort has become even more complex and challenging. In this session, Costin will SAS demonstrate how we simplify data preparation for analytic exploit. He will show data ingestion, cleansing, transformation and in-memory data exploration – all using the power of SAS® inside Hadoop!
Analytic Pervasiveness Across the Enterprise
Wednesday, March 8, 11:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. | Grapevine C, Level 3
Gary Spakes, Director, Global Technology Practice, Enterprise Architecture, SAS
Today, organizations are more analytically driven, and competitiveness in the marketplace is at an all-time high. Business users may have a vision of what they want to achieve, but the components for delivering analytics tend to be stop-gaps, and not integrated. In this session, let’s discuss a more unified vision, including the building blocks needed to create an extensible, resilient environment so the business can operate analytically.
From the smallest details to the biggest challenges, SAS® Analytics transforms the world.
