An assortment of activity at Global Forum


This year at SAS Global Forum, the theme is “Strength in Numbers” and SAS Education is offering a number of training and certification opportunities to strengthen your SAS knowledge.

We hope that you will take advantage of this unique chance to take a class, get SAS certified and attend the SAS Global Forum 2013 crowd for enlightening discussions and networking.  Here are a few quotes from the instructors that will be teaching classes at SAS Global Forum either before or after the conference.  Hope to see you there!

  • DataFlux Data Management Studio: Basics | April 24-26
    “Join me as I take you down the DataFlux methodology path of PLAN-> ACT -> MONITOR. You’ll learn the basics (& much more!) of working with the various Data Management Studio components as they fit in to the DataFlux methodology. Also, during class you can interact with other SAS Global Forum attendees to PLAN evening activities available in fabulous San Francisco, ACT out these plans, and I will MONITOR your results!” - Kari Richardson, Education Manager, SAS Information Management
  • Statistics 1: Introduction to ANOVA, Regression, and Logistic Regression | April 24-26
    “Calling all SAS users! This is a great time for that college statistics refresher class you’ve been thinking you should take. In this class, you’ll get your Type 1 and Type 2 errors untangled, relearn what a hypothesis test is all about, and finally see the light on ANOVA, regressions, and learn what’s up with that P value. Odds are – you’re gonna like this class!”  - Rich Papel, Principal Technical Training Consultant
  • Applied Clustering Techniques | May 2-3
    “Isn’t SAS Global Forum great? There is so much to learn and so many new people to meet. So, how are you going to report back to your managers and friends what you have learned and whom you have met? Well, take the Applied Clustering Techniques course and learn how to summarize those people into 5 or 6 relatively distinct groups and those presentations into 3 or 4 categories. Your managers will appreciate the succinct reports and your friends will quickly get the gist of who attends these awesome conferences.”  - Marc Huber, Sr. Analytical Training Consultant
  • SAS® Enterprise Guide® 2: Advanced Tasks and Querying | May 2-3
    “If you have been using point-and-click SAS® Enterprise Guide® for a while, but would like to do more complex data manipulation and summarization, join me in San Francisco for the SAS Enterprise Guide 2 course! We will cover many tasks from the Data menu, prompts, conditional execution in the process flow, SAS functions, and complex summarization in the Query Builder.”  - Stacey Syphus, SAS Enterprise Guide Curriculum Team Lead
