The Passenger Terminal in Amsterdam, a popular port of call for cruise ships, served as the impressive backdrop for Analytics Experience 2017. With 5,214 mentions of #AnalyticsX, 71,833 impressions and reach on Twitter, and 28,412 impressions and reach on LinkedIn, SAS Analytics Experience has proven once again to be the most important analytics event series around the world.
Professionals, customers, partners and media representatives from all over the world came to learn and talk about digital transformation and analytics. Everyone felt right at home as they were guided through the conference by our host Jon Briggs, the first male voice of Siri in the UK.
On Tuesday the 17th, the plenary started with SAS co-founder and CEO Jim Goodnight, founder of SciSports Giels Brouwer, and SAS CTO Oliver Schabenberger. As Dr. Goodnight stated, we live in a new democracy of analytics where the power of data is available to all. The era of analytics will usher in change, and the new capabilities in SAS® ViyaTM will help organizations make better decisions faster than ever before.
