Another year, another conference! This year I am really looking forward to attending SAS Global Forum 2014. I am, of course, looking forward to seeing familiar faces and making new acquaintances at the networking events.
This year the session content is spectacular and I will be in as many sessions as I can handle! I am particularly impressed with all of the sessions that appeal to SAS users in the banking and finance industry. You’ll find more than 70 different sessions under Banking in the Conference Scheduler: presentations, conference tutorials, workshops, e-posters and more.
In addition to tutorials on using the fundamentals of SAS tools (you’ll find me here: SAS385 - Help Me! Switch to SAS® Enterprise Guide® from Traditional SAS® ), I found a session discussing credit models. It mentions using both SAS® Enterprise Miner™ and SAS® Visual Analytics (2242 - Researching Individual Credit Rating Models). I’ve been looking forward to trying these tools, and after this session I’ll know where to begin.
There’s a case study about implementing fraud prevention reporting (1855 - How SAS® BI May Help You to Optimize Business Processes)
And here’s another presentation covering SAS® Financial Crimes Suite (SAS405 - Financial Crimes Compliance: Track, Monitor, and Audit).
I’ve already double-booked myself in some time slots at the conference so thank goodness there will be sessions videocast – I get to have my cake and eat it too!
I’ll be at the First Timer’s Session on Sunday afternoon at 4:30, where I hope to meet some new friends – I hope you’ll come and say hello to me!
