SAS Global Forum: Focus on SAS administration


If you're a SAS administrator and haven't registered or planned your agenda for SAS Global Forum 2013, here are a few key happenings to tempt you!

  • A SAS Administrator's Meet Up is being planned for Monday evening at 6:00.  When you arrive at the conference, be sure to check the sign-up board near the registration area.  You won't want to miss this opportunity to share your ideas.
  •  The Systems Architecture and Administration section is offering more than 30 papers this year, highlighting topics from virtual deployment practices to software migration to SAS Grid Manager. Paper presentations are scheduled throughout the day Monday to Wednesday.
  •  There are two Hands-on Workshops for SAS Platform Administration on Tuesday, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.  Don't overlook these opportunities if you are new to SAS administration. 
  •  SAS teams have planned a dozen half-hour Super Demos, including introductions to new administration tools and functionality you'll see in SAS 9.4.  Look for Super Demo Station 9: Administration and Architecture along Demo Alley.  
  • If you have questions about a specific product or feature, you can visit the Architecture and Administration product station toward the rear of the SAS Support and Demo area.  SAS product specialists will be available to answer your questions anytime that area is open.  

Don't forget that online registration closes April 22.   Can't make it to the entire conference?  This year, planners are offering Day Passes.  You can purchase them online or at the door.

  1. Hi Christina,

    Thanks for posting this checklist of admin related things to look out for at SASGF13. I didn't know about the meet-up on Monday, so I'll be adding that one to my list.

    There's also a SAS admin panel discussion (473-2013) on Tuesday Apr 30 at 13:30 which includes Greg Nelson, Michael Raithel, Jennifer Parks and myself. I hope we get a good turnout and lots of discussion.

    I recall how much more focus there was on platform administration at last years conference, and this years conference looks like it might have even more. Not long now - getting excited! 🙂

      Paul .. sounds like a great line-up for the panel discussion!

      Lots of excitement here at SAS too. Administrators are going to love some of the new platform features. Let us know what you think after the conference.
