Nothing like a good snowstorm to put you in your place. And make you appreciate the Wi-Fi access to work since the roads near your house won’t be fully plowed for a few days. Yes, welcome to winter precipitation in the southern US! But last week’s snow was better than ice, and SAS can handle tons of remote access, so progress was made.
We announced yet another release of SAS® software before the holidays, and it was a big one. The big release of SAS® Viya® products includes SAS® Visual Statistics, SAS® Data Mining and Machine Learning, SAS® Econometrics, and SAS® Optimization. And if you also have SAS® 9.4M5 installed, you can work with both from the same SAS interface, such as SAS® Enterprise Guide®, SAS® Studio, and the SAS windowing environment. Learn about what we offer in both SAS 9.4M5 and SAS Viya.
Another great way to catch up with our new software directions is to attend SAS® Global Forum in Denver, April 8–11.
Early-bird registration is available through March 5, and the conference provides a host of analytical talks as well as dozens of short presentations on the exhibition floor and opportunities to talk shop with SAS developers. In addition, we offer a bunch of pre-conference tutorials that include presentations on mixed models, causal analysis, survey data analysis, and longitudinal data analysis. You can advance your ODS Graphics skills or learn all about modern machine learning techniques with SAS® Visual Data Mining and Machine Learning software. And if you’ve already registered, it’s easy enough to add one of these courses now!
Here’s to better weather, wherever you are!
