I recently went to the SAS Forum Switzerland which took place in Baden (see this post for more details). It was a one day event with some interesting talks. Swiss-based companies using SAS products such as Diso, Systematika, FinScore (where I work), etc. where present. Examples of presentations from the SAS team and external people are:
- Flex and SAS – A Compelling Combination (Guillaume Curat, SAS Switzerland)
- Fraud Preventation at Viseca Card Services (Marcel Bieler, Aduno Group)
- Grid Computing with SAS (Guillaume Curat, SAS Switzerland)
- State of the Art Analytics (Udo Sglavo, SAS Global Practice)
One good aspect of this event was the possibility to meet a lot of people from SAS that we usually only know by their names. For example, there were people from SAS Education and SAS Support. It was very interesting to meet SAS team since I interact with them in my everyday work. The SAS Switzwerland team was really nice. In my point of view, the only drawback was the high number of presentations. Indeed, for people like us, with a stand, it was quite difficult to meet people that were not working for SAS since most of them were attending the talks. If you attended this event, feel free to comment this post.
