SAS Global Forum 2017 has started, and the tsunami of SAS Tips&Tricks has begone!


The theme for the "Opening session" on sunday was among many topics a review of news from the past year and a look into upcomming releases, that continued today with the "Technology Connection: Analytics in Action. Innovation at Work" - both adressed new technology, the difference between classic Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (or Algorithmic Intelligence) - and the idea behind Edge Analytics directly at the sensors or devices. See "DATA Step Debugging in Enterprise Guide"


The rest of the days was then open for hundreds of sessions, demo etc. wtih the challenge of chossing only one for each time-slot. You can already now see some of the recorded presentations. But staying home just to watch the video, don't give you the possiblitity to ask questions, hear other customers reactions or talk to the developers about new features.

  1. Managing the Data Dictionary and Business Glossary Using SAS® Business Data Network
  2. Scripting and Scheduling SAS® Admin Tools
