SAS Tech Talk: Developing the SAS Visual Analytics Explorer


If there's anyone who represents the global nature of SAS software, it's Falko Schulz. He's a German who lives in Brisbane, Australia while he works for SAS R&D based in Cary, NC.

Falko works on the team that produces SAS Visual Analytics, specifically the "explorer" portion of the tool. He brings a ton of SAS knowledge and real-world experience to his role. In fact, you can see Falko demonstrate his SAS-coding chops in his recent posts on SAS blogs:

While he's creative and brilliant with all-things-SAS, I find Falko to be humble and personable. That's why I was excited to host him on a SAS Tech Talk session at SAS Global Forum last year. During our interview, Falko discusses how he manages working with a team while located half-a-world away. He also shows off several of the new features in SAS Visual Analytics Explorer, including some of the new visualizations and the built-in forecasting methods.

Watch the video to learn more about SAS Visual Analytics Explorer and the people who build it.
