Macys.com, Office Depot discuss SAS® Analytics at NRF 2013
SAS customers at retail industry's biggest event show how power of analytics boosts competitiveness
Retailers parlaying the power of SAS® retail analytics into big results will share their secrets during three "Big Ideas" sessions at the 102nd NRF Annual Conference and EXPO Jan. 13-16 in New York.
"As Platinum Sponsor of the NRF Big Show, we'll be demonstrating retail software including SAS Size Optimization, SAS Visual Analytics and SAS Customer Intelligence," said Diana McHenry, Director of SAS Global Retail Marketing. "But the most valuable information will come from SAS customers leading three separate Big Ideas sessions on Monday and Tuesday."
And, in a compelling NRF Super Session, thought leaders Lori Schafer, SAS Retail Executive Advisor, and Bernie Brennan, former CEO of Montgomery Ward, will discuss how Amazon, Apple, eBay, Facebook and Google are leaving their marks on mobile technology. The two wrote the book Branded! How Retailers Engage Consumers with Social Media and Mobility .
