  • Putting Connected Vehicle Data to Work Recorded: Jul 27 2017 48 mins
    Lonnie Miller, Industry Consultant, SAS Automotive sector. David Vandekieft, Director of IoT Solutions, Bosch
    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?

  • Location Analytics: Use Cases for Improving Visualizations & Reports Recorded: Jun 29 2017 56 mins
    Rick Styll, Product Management, SAS; AJ Rice, Alliance Manager, Esri
    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 Recorded: Feb 15 2017 56 mins
    Bill Roberts, Director, Global IoT Practice, SAS; Ted Connell, Director, Solution Architect Group, Intel
    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 Recorded: Dec 15 2016 48 mins
    Danny Smith, SAS Manufacturing Practice; Bahadir Aral, Advanced Analytics, SAS
    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 Recorded: Oct 25 2016 67 mins
    Wayne Thompson, Chief Data Scientist SAS & Tapan Patel, Product Marketing Manager SAS
    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
  • Using Self-Service BI and Approachable Analytics to Improve Business Processes Recorded: Oct 11 2016 47 mins
    Dieter Steinmann, Sr. Manager, Business Systems, Fraport AG; Gregor Herrmann, Sr. BI Solutions Manager, SAS
    The Business Intelligence (BI) and Analytics market has undergone a major shift. More interest and usage is driven by business users and analysts for an interactive style of analysis and a decentralized, easy-to-use approach to reporting, dashboards and analytics. On other end, IT wants to deliver this in a reusable, and governed manner. As adoption of BI and analytics increase, a scalable and modern platform is equally important for organizations to drive revenue and growth.
