  • Understand SAS's vision and roadmap for meeting the unique challenges of the analytics economy


Much is being written about the economy of everything—from the cloud and big data to APIs, the internet of things, and artificial intelligence. But where does the analytics economy fit in? Just like other economies, the analytics economy offers new ways for organizations to disrupt traditional business models (or be disrupted themselves), but doing so requires realization of value driven from the application of analytics to data.

Fiona McNeill shares SAS’s vision and roadmap for meeting the unique challenges of the analytics economy, including thoughts on intersections with related technologies like machine learning, deep learning, cognitive computing, and more.

This session is sponsored by SAS.
