I've already introduced myself in the "Meet the Community Manager" message and want to introduce a few other folks you'll start hearing from more regularly.
Mike Frost joined DataFlux as a Product Manager in 2010. In 2012, after the DataFlux product suite and SAS data integration products were combined to form the SAS Data Management Division, Mike assumed a Senior Product Manager role for SAS Data Management. In this role, Mike manages the strategy, planning, and development direction of the company’s data management products including, data quality, data integration, data federation and master data management. Prior to joining DataFlux, Mike held product marketing management and pre- and post-sales technical consulting and support roles at the DataDirect division of Progress Software. Mike holds a bachelor’s degree in biological and agricultural engineering from NC State University.
What Mike likes about data management: I enjoy sharing stories about the wild, crazy, and at times, unbelievable kinds of data management issues and challenges encountered by organizations and the lengths they will go through to work around them.
Jeff Bailey is the Principal Product Manager for storage at SAS. Jeff has been with SAS since 1992 and has spent most of his time helping customers use SAS with database management systems. He has written many papers covering how to use SAS with Teradata. In addition, frequently speaks on using SAS with databases. He has held positions in SAS R&D, Consulting, Education and Product Management. Jeff has a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
Tony Hamilton is a Global Product Marketing Principal for Data Management at SAS. He has a background in software solution technologies and IT systems architecture and has a special interest in the evolution of transactional processing methods. Tony believes analytics and the management of data processes are as important to business and society as the invention of the Internet. He frequently speaks at industry events about ways to orchestrate data analysis, data management and data visualization for optimal business results.
Tony holds a BSC Degree from the University of Strathclyde in Scotland. He recently served on the Board of Advisors for the International Institute for Analytics with Tom Davenport and Jack Phillips.
What Tony likes about data management: It has the ability to unify data form, fit and function approaches that are used in business, society and in machine-to-machine operations and has the potential to take the IT build and runtime control metrics to a new level, making digital decision making more accurate, secure and confident in the eyes of the recipient.
