I'm finalizing my details for SAS Innovate. I'm looking forward to coming but I have a few questions. 

 

1. Are all the sessions, outside special sessions, 30 minutes? I notice some of the sessions are 1 hour long (See attached -> 12:30 sessions).

This will affect my attendance at the other sessions at 1pm.

2. What will the dress code be for this event? I know most do business casual but I'm making no assumptions. 

3. Is there a way we can get some better sessions? These Gov't sessions I think you should nix because the world is in a worse place since covid and I really don't want to hear from these people. Honestly, I wish they would resign. We have higher prices everywhere, these forecasting system simply failed MISERABLY, and we're spending too much (reaching too far). I do want to hear more about the innovation in the SAS product(s) roadmaps...this is really all I want to hear about 🙂 

4. Can we get a session on how SAS has used AI / ML to make decisions for their organizations (SAS & JMP) during and after covid? 

5. Can you discuss how these roundtables will work on the final day? 1.) Lecture then comments?, 2.) Panel w/ experts conversations?

Also, can we submit questions in advance? 

6. How did you come up with these roundtable discussions? Personally, I'm only attending these roundtables (Navigating Uncertainty & Twinning to Win).

One more question, why is this called sas innovate? I see other events later in the year that are more technical.

I see you posted openings for presentations for the fall events. 

 

Can you start putting so structure around the submissions? 

 

We need experts who have experiences migrating to SAS Viya from the following:

 

Mainframe

Unix

Linux

Windows. 

 

I want to hear more about the evolving relationship you have with Hashicorp. You use many of their products in your SAS Viya solution. 

Can we hear more about this? 

 

Also, I want you to consider putting the JMP and SAS communities together in future conferences. These products need to be sold together.
