It was a packed house at the Moscone West Center in San Francisco last night as more than 4,000 SAS users and employees from around the world gathered together to officially kick off SAS® Global Forum.
Following the live software demos from customers and SAS development teams, Technical Support Vice President Annette Harris took the stage to announce the 2013 winner of the SAS User Feedback Award.
The award was presented to Andrew Lynch, Vice President of Chase Customer Analytics with JPMorgan Chase. Lynch helped improve the functionality of the SAS High-Performance Analytics platform and demonstrate its value in the field.
“I would like to thank SAS and the various support teams who have engaged with me over the past year to improve our end-user’s experience while enhancing overall product functionality,” Lynch said. “I appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with a partner who values input and feedback and is willing to incorporate and integrate those thoughts into their entire product line. This is a tremendous honor, and I look forward to working with SAS well into the future.”
