In hopes of adding to your SAS Global Forum experience, we've kicked off a SAS presenters series. Here, we’ve asked some of the SAS presenters five questions to learn more about what makes them tick, why they chose to present and what they hoped you would take away from the presentation. Take a look at Jessica Fraley’s answers.
Jessica Fraley, Software Developer
Jessi, tell me something about yourself that our readers might not know.
My favorite dog breed is the Pembroke Welsh Corgi. They are a herding breed which means they have to be independent thinkers, but they also love solving puzzles. I’ve learned from Riki, my Corgi, that they also have way of turning whatever they’re doing into fun.
Have you been to SAS Global Forum before? If so, what was your most memorable experience so far?
This is my second trip to SAS Global Forum. My most memorable experiences have been those when I was connecting with our users and hearing their thoughts and feelings about our software.
What problem or customer pain were you hoping to solve with Metadata Reporting Using the SAS® Configuration Troubleshooter: A Best Practice?
I am hoping to show users a way to ask new questions about their repositories. The paper is not about a concrete solution to a defined problem; it’s a new tool for them to use in a way that suits them best.
During your presentation, what are the most important highlights or questions that you hoped to cover?
The highlights that I hoped the audience would receive were 1) the user can now ask questions about their metadata across time frames and 2) that the range of questions they can ask about metadata is increasing.
