SAS and Big Data Program (4PM-10PM)

This program is a one day training workshop that will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to understand the importance and need for big data and using SAS.

The amount of data that’s being created and stored on a global level is almost inconceivable, and it just keeps growing. The importance of big data doesn’t revolve around how much data you have, but what you do with it. You can take data from any source and analyze it to find answers that enable cost reductions, time reductions, new product development and optimized offerings, and smart decision making. In today’s environment, there is a growing need to provide this skill set. This workshop will get you started in a career in statistical analysis systems.

This learning event previews the world of product development and shows participants some of the key elements an organization must get right to ensure success. Technology applications and common marketing and design principles will be covered so that participants see the linkage of this end-to-end process.
