    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

  • Practical Approaches to Interactive Data Discovery & Predictive Analytics
    Practical Approaches to Interactive Data Discovery & Predictive Analytics Wayne Thompson, Chief Data Scientist SAS & Tapan Patel, Product Marketing Manager SAS Recorded: Oct 25 2016 67 mins
    Successful data science and analytics projects should focus on the explanation and delivery of business impact – this requires strong collaboration between business analysts and data scientists. Preparing rich representative data is important, but data discovery and predictive analytics are equally valuable – they enable team members to quickly evaluate which events are drivers or inhibitors of success, and to predict future outcomes. Throughout the course of a project, how can business analysts stay focused on the most important details? How can data scientists prototype and operationalize models in a quick, productive, and easy-to-use manner?

    In this webcast, we will use SAS Visual Analytics and SAS Visual Statistics to teach you how to:

    • Quickly identify predictive drivers
    • Discover outliers by using interactive tools
    • Use drag-and-drop features to build predictive models
    • Simultaneously build models and process results for each group or segment of data
    • Visually explore your predictive outputs or values
    • Compare your models and apply them to new data
