Announcing Inside SAS Global Forum series


We're glad to announce that we're going to launch our Inside SAS Global Forum video series again this year! Alan Hoffler will be back as our roving reporter, providing that fun, informative and sometimes irreverant, behind-the-scenes look at this important SAS users conference.

You may have caught our behind-the-scenes video reports from SAS Global Forum last year in San Antonio. We posted our videos to the SAS YouTube channel and embedded them in the sascom Voices blog. This year we'll be embedding our videos right here in the new SAS Global Forum blog.  We're also not only posting our videos on YouTube, but will also provide an alternative location for our videos on  This should help viewers who have employers who block YouTube.

Covering SAS Global Forum last year was a lot of fun, but Alan and I want to make this year even better.  We need your comments and suggestions!

  • Who would you like us to interview?
  • What questions would you like asked?
  • What interests you more about SAS Global Forum?  Behind-the-scenes interviews with SAS employees at or getting ready for the conference -OR- interviews with paper and demo floor presenters?  Both?

Just add your comments and suggestions right here on the SAS Global Forum blog.  I'll also be "tweeting" our activities on Twitter.  As Alison Bolen pointed out on the sascom Voices blog, you can follow all SAS Global Forum tweets with the hashtag #sgf09. This will make it easy for anyone to follow conversations about SAS Global Forum now and during the conference by searching for or subscribing to #sgf09.

If this will be your first time attending SAS Global Forum, we'd like to talk to you and possibly interview you at the conference.  Drop an e-mail to

Alan and I look forward in reading your comments and suggestions.
