We are getting ready to kick off this year's Applying Business Analytics Webinar Series. You can participate in the monthly live webinars and hear directly from organizations that are actively applying analytics, BI and data management to create business value. We promise it will be worth your time! The series drew more than 4,400 attendees in 2010 and is sure to be a hit again this year.
The first webinar, scheduled for February 16, will feature SAS customer Oberweis Dairy, a 90-year-old business that has grown from a family-owned dairy farm to a major regional food manufacturer and retailer. Oberweis Dairy is bringing state-of-the-art analytics to its decidedly old-fashioned business – home milk delivery and traditional ice cream shops. We invite you to get the inside scoop from Oberweis and hear firsthand about the benefits, business issues and challenges involved in implementing SAS® Business Analytics.
Bruce Bedford, the company's Vice President of Analytics, will describe how his company has used SAS Business Analytics to more effectively cross-sell and up-sell its products, identify and correct product quality issues and increase customer loyalty.
Curious? View a one-minute sneak peek video about Oberweis on YouTube because you'll see, even cows need analytics! So, mark your calendar for February 16. Future dates and featured customers for the 2011 Applying Business Analytics Webinar Series include:
