SAS CEO Jim Goodnight opens SAS Global Forum with a review of how analytics can help organizations succeed in a post-pandemic world. He will review how SAS has worked closely with its customers during a turbulent year, and how analytics is at the forefront for helping organizations reimagine a new way of living and working. Goodnight will also demonstrate how SAS technology can take organizations through the entire life cycle of analytics.

SAS CTO Bryan Harris will join to discuss the future of SAS technology. Harris will review how analytics powers the next steps of digital transformation by providing a vital link between data and decisions. To achieve this, analytics must be adopted by all industries, by a wider set of users and throughout different parts of the business. The session will explore how cloud technology and composite AI provide both the scale and the adaptability that modern businesses need to manage and explore massive amounts of data.

SAS speakers will be joined by customers and partners, including Accenture, AEG Worldwide, Asian Paints, British Rowing, the California Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission and Microsoft.
