Six regional JMP users groups have formed over the past year or so, and it looks like Atlanta may get the next one. JMP user Kevin Holston is spreading the word that he'd like to start a group there.
To join Kevin in creating the group, send him a message via e-mail.
As Kevin begins gathering other JMP users together, I asked him about his use of JMP and why he is starting a users group:
1. Where do you work?
I work for NASCO LLC, a healthcare payer solutions company within a consulting group that ensures our customer’s experience high performance levels with our claims processing system. So my practice area focuses on performance management and healthcare payer analytics.
2. How long have you been using JMP? Do you also use SAS?
I started using JMP with version 7, so I am a relatively new user. I had used Base SAS with other employers and in graduate school.
3. What do you use JMP and SAS for?
Business visualization and Visual Six Sigma purposes. JMP stands up to the marketing claims and really does enable greater understanding of business data with the ease of point-and-click functionality. I am tired of static spreadsheets, built from simple queries and presenting pieces of information. I must drill deeper into our customers data, explore relationships and trends.
4. Why do you want to start a JMP users group in Atlanta?
I am the sole person who uses JMP within my company, so I do not have others to share ideas with. I want to learn, grow and network with other users.
5. What do you think people could get out of meeting with other JMP users?
I think establishing a JMP users group will be a great way to:
• Provide a friendly environment where people can learn more about JMP.
• Network and share ideas.
• Get help with all kinds of technical questions.
• Get honest advice.
