    OEM Disruption in Automotive Retail and Aftersales—Digitization and Connectivity Kumar Saha, Mobility Research Director, Dr. Julia E. Saini, Global Vice President, Frost & Sullivan Recorded: Sep 6 2017 57 mins
    The business of selling cars, parts and services is undergoing tremendous disruption at every level. From omni-channel retailing to digital dealers to Uberization of service, the downstream automotive ecosystem is expected to be completely transformed in the next 10-15 years. Frost & Sullivan predicts that nearly $50 billion automotive parts will be sold online globally by 2020. Similarly, nearly 70% of car sales leads will be fully digital by 2020. However, these disruptive forces also present challenges. For instance, the rise of Amazon is set to completely transform car sales and aftermarket models. In this scenario, OEMs will have to recalibrate their strategies while protecting their investments in current sales footprints.

    Mobile Technology Enabling Digital Disruption in Trucking Industry Chandramowli Kailasam, Frost & Sullivan, Leo Jolicoeur, Drivewyze and Chris Davy, Blue Bloodhound Recorded: Jul 11 2017 56 mins
    Mobile-based freight matching will be the biggest disrupter transforming the North American transportation industry—a $700 billion industry. On-demand freight mobility apps will bring in high asset utilization among smaller fleets, help reduce logistics costs for shippers due to lower brokerage fees, ease capacity crunch, reduce empty return miles that are currently about 20 billion miles, and also help reduce emissions. Mobile-based freight will also disrupt the brokerage industry, currently valued at $50 billion, and is likely to become a $26.4 billion market by 2025. Other notable apps will be the complementary freight optimization and driver utility apps, with a potential to grow into a $9 billion market.
  • 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?

  • 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
