  • You Can't Always Get What You Want: Manufacturing Webinar
    You Can't Always Get What You Want: Manufacturing Webinar John Brandt, CEO of the MPI group and Marcia Walker, Principal Consultant, SAS Recorded: Aug 1 2017 36 mins
    A majority of manufacturers in MPI’s recent survey are now making money off the IoT – a big change from just two years ago. But challenges remain. Many decision makers can’t access essential data: They can’t always get what they want. This growing digital divide means that improvements in operations, supply chain, logistics, and customer service are being delayed for some while others are benefiting. Webinar attendees will learn how their manufacturing peers benefit from IoT data today, what solutions, such as streaming analytics, are gaining traction, and where early adopters are seeing success.
  • Putting Connected Vehicle Data to Work
    Putting Connected Vehicle Data to Work Lonnie Miller, Industry Consultant, SAS Automotive sector. David Vandekieft, Director of IoT Solutions, Bosch Recorded: Jul 27 2017 48 mins
    Learn how automotive manufacturers can take advantage of connected vehicle innovation, data management and analytical opportunities supporting these strategies - webinar from SAS and Bosch.

    By 2030, market estimates from McKinsey & Company indicate the automotive revenue pool could grow by $1.5 trillion stemming from shared mobility, connectivity services and feature upgrades to vehicles. Driven by these potential gains, automotive companies are racing to find ways to define and claim their role with new business models.

    Yet, what is possible for automotive companies to achieve now given the availability of accessible driver and vehicle information? How can innovation teams take advantage of near-term opportunities that propel both current and future projects enabled by connected vehicle, mobility and on-demand services? How can companies start “doing” work around these emerging opportunities?

    During the webinar you will learn about:
    •Business development opportunities tied to connected vehicle and mobility strategies that ultimately allow for data monetization.
    •Technology that allows OEMs and other organizations to draw out complex vehicle data before using it for analytical initiatives.
    •A framework that helps organizations leverage predictive analytics, streaming and real-time information to improve business outcomes as well as customer experiences

  • Location Analytics: Use Cases for Improving Visualizations & Reports
    Location Analytics: Use Cases for Improving Visualizations & Reports Rick Styll, Product Management, SAS; AJ Rice, Alliance Manager, Esri Recorded: Jun 29 2017 56 mins
    Nearly 70 percent of business data contains some level of location information. But business analysts rarely use this data within their BI and analytics workflows.

    Location analytics is more than just putting points on a map. It’s part of a much larger picture of using location to provide context in visualizations, reports and analytics. Utilizing geographic data in descriptive and predictive analytics helps companies discover new patterns, identify location-specific opportunities, and get a complete picture before making business decisions.

    In this webinar, Esri and SAS discuss the role that location analytics can play in determining practical next steps for your organization. A product demonstration will be shown as well.

    We’ll answer:
    • How does location analytics add value to BI and analytics initiatives?
    • What are the right uses for location analytics?
    • What pitfalls should organizations consider as they implement processes and technology for analyzing geographic data?
    • Are special skill sets required to use location information?
    • How can organizations best develop a strategy for using geographic data?

    Have you ever read The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene? This bestselling book, with all its fans and critics, reminds us that life isn’t black and white, and teaches us through 48 laws how to live in the gray areas. Interestingly enough, those in cybersecurity should feel right at home in this gray space.

    In this all-women panel discussion, Tamara Dull picks out ten of these 48 laws, and talks with cybersecurity experts to help draw out parallels for women who desire to be more powerful and successful in their cybersecurity (and tech-focused) endeavors.Come prepared to listen, hear differing views, and ask your questions at the end. We’re prepared to have a good time with this one!

    Women in Cybersecurity: Is This a Good Time? Tamara Dull (SAS), Barbara Cosgriff (SAS), Debra Baker (Cisco), Jeanne Alley (LexisNexis), Jennifer Rosario (First Citizens) Recorded: Apr 18 2017 62 mins
    It is estimated that women make up 11 percent of the cybersecurity workforce. There’s no question that we need to get more women involved, especially as we move into this Internet of Things (IoT) era where data volumes are growing exponentially, and information security continues to be a hot topic amongst IT, executive boards, and everyone in between.

    In this all-women panel discussion, Tamara Dull will be talking with cybersecurity experts about its threat, the impact of technology, why women need to be involved, their advice for President Trump, and the landscape moving forward.

    Come prepared to listen, learn, ask your questions, and have a good time.

  • Evolving the Industrial IoT Into Strategic Advantage
    Evolving the Industrial IoT Into Strategic Advantage Bill Roberts, Director, Global IoT Practice, SAS; Ted Connell, Director, Solution Architect Group, Intel Recorded: Feb 15 2017 56 mins
    Heavy industry was first to arrive at the IoT party, quickly recognizing the potential to augment existing processes and establish new protocols. As a result, organizations that embraced the industrial internet of things (IIoT) have been at the forefront of fine-tuning applications and establishing best practices. And while many of those practices have turned out to be impactful, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that the opportunity is much bigger with predictive analytics.

    We’ve entered a perfect storm where the falling costs of capturing, processing and analyzing data coincide with the explosion of data streams generated by millions of pieces of connected equipment, devices and systems. And the same technology that created the perfect storm has empowered customers with near-instant data and instantaneous engagement with each other and also with your organization. So the opportunities extend beyond tactical process improvements and have become both strategic and enterprise-wide.

    Recognizing and capitalizing on the opportunities requires an evolution of skills and mindset, made possible with key technology relationships. The Industrial IoT collaboration between SAS and Intel enables organizations to capture, process and analyze data. The end result is the ability to evolve their strategic advantage and realize the full value of their IIoT data.

    Tune in to this webinar to gain insights and best practices for evolving the industrial IoT into strategic advantage for your organization.
  • Profit Center Analytics for Manufacturers
    Profit Center Analytics for Manufacturers Danny Smith, SAS Manufacturing Practice; Bahadir Aral, Advanced Analytics, SAS Recorded: Dec 15 2016 48 mins
    According to a recent study by Bain & Co., realized price affects EBIT more than any other lever: for every 1% increase in realized price there is an 8% increase in EBIT. Yet most companies expend great efforts on improving other levers with less impact and longer time-to-benefit. Most focus on aggressively reducing variable costs, but a 1% reduction in variable costs only leads to a 3% increase in EBIT, and takes much longer to achieve.

    Applying advanced analytics to improve company performance is increasingly popular for manufacturers, from quality to reliability to supply chain. To make the most from analytics-based competitive advantage manufacturers need to challenge their existing approach to pricing, and stop leaving money on the table.

    Join us to:
    * hear the different ways analytics can help with pricing design, analysis and optimization
    * understand the underlying mathematical approaches, technologies and deployments
    * learn from other manufacturers experiences through case studies
