We know that the job search can be stressful, and we want your application and interview experience to be a great one. With the new year just around the corner, we're hiring for customer facing roles! Here’s a look at what to expect from our hiring process – from application to your
Intelligence means learning from what has happened and using that to improve future choices.
Assessing a company from the outside can be tricky business – but it shouldn’t be. That’s why we’re pulling back the curtain on the #saslife. From our values to our vision for the future, we’re giving a transparent look at what it’s really like to work here. We kicked off
Getting value from analytics is becoming top of mind for businesses. Organizations have invested millions of dollars in data, people and technology and are looking for a return on their investment. That requires operationalizing analytics so that it can be used for strategic decision making -- often referred to as
My colleague, Mike Drutar, recently showed how to create a "strip plot" that shows the distribution of temperatures for each calendar month at a particular location. Mike created the strip plot in SAS Visual Analytics by using a point-and-click interface. This article shows how to create a similar graph by
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Value-Based Payments (VBP), health care’s new magic, “silver bullet” that will solve all our fraud problems. Last month, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a press release entitled, “HHS Proposes Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute Reforms to Support Value-Based and
“The future is already here — it's just not very evenly distributed.” ~ William Gibson, author The same can be said for climate change – global warming is here, in a big way, but its effects are still an arm's length away for many of us. How is climate change
Introduced in the SAS Visual Analytics 8.4 release is the ability to control the layout position of these prompts. Using my example report, let’s change the placement of these prompts.
We’re proud of our unique company culture that spans across offices, divisions and geographies. It’s one of the reasons SAS was recently named among the top workplaces in the world by Fortune’s Great Place to Work! If you’re curious about what it is that makes SAS such a great place
With the holidays quickly approaching, many of us have quite a bit of travel ahead and/or overall increased busyness running around from here to there. When you’re on the go, it can be difficult to continue to eat nutrient dense, healthy foods. However, with a little planning (and patience!) you
Biplots are two-dimensional plots that help to visualize relationships in high dimensional data. A previous article discusses how to interpret biplots for continuous variables. The biplot projects observations and variables onto the span of the first two principal components. The observations are plotted as markers; the variables are plotted as
This is an issue I hear about from parents all of the time. Sometimes the disagreements are small, and sometimes they are very significant. As your child ages, the stakes become even higher when parents can't get on the same page. Here are a few common ways that parents find themselves
The t-test is a very useful test that compares one variable (perhaps blood pressure) between two groups. T-tests are called t-tests because the test results are all based on t-values. T-values are an example of what statisticians call test statistics. A test statistic is a standardized value that is calculated
A major UK insurance company used text analytics to categorise complaints.
US military veterans are mission-focused, team-oriented and natural leaders that benefit any organization that hires them. Many of today's veterans organizations use data and analytics to help transition military members and their spouses find rewarding civilian careers. SAS supports those efforts and we're also proud to offer many programs to
Analyzing tweets is challenging because of their succinctness (max 280 characters). However, that task is facilitated by the powerful features of SAS Visual Text Analytics (VTA), which includes embedded machine learning algorithms.
I recently saw in several social media posts that sales of vinyl records are forecast to be higher than sales of CDs this year (2019) for the first time since 1986. Two questions came to mind - 1) Is this true? and 2) Is this a big deal? Let's analyze
In grade school, students learn how to round numbers to the nearest integer. In later years, students learn variations, such as rounding up and rounding down by using the greatest integer function and least integer function, respectively. My sister, who is an engineer, learned a rounding method that rounds half-integers
With all this sitting at a desk writing code, I have to do something to keep in shape. And for me, that something is paddling boats ... as fast as I can - and occasionally trying to race them. This past weekend I entered the race at Hunting Island, SC.

“Let us remember: one book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world." — Malala Yousafzei Growing up with dyslexia was a challenge but what I most clearly remember are the successes. I attribute much of this to my dad’s dedication to my education and reading skills.
Innovation comes in all shapes and sizes. Business value though, lies in translating ideas into production.
Principal component analysis (PCA) is an important tool for understanding relationships in continuous multivariate data. When the first two principal components (PCs) explain a significant portion of the variance in the data, you can visualize the data by projecting the observations onto the span of the first two PCs. In
The public sector is finally changing. Artificial intelligence is gradually finding its way into its administrative structures.
At SAS, we recognize and appreciate the valuable skills and experience that veterans, active military and military families bring to our workforce. We honor the service of military families, and actively support our employees in their transition from the military to the civilian corporate work environment. Our own Dan Schaub
