There are concepts that guide us strictly concerning innovation and artificial intelligence (AI). One is that society only associates positive things with innovation. We want to bring about change; we want more and better with the same effort. AI is supposed to help. But stop. An “I” is considered creative
Collaboration in the cloud is definitely the next big thing from my perspective for life sciences organisations.
SAS, uqudo and iLabs Technologies started a collaboration in OpenGate for touchless and safe travel. OpenGate, based on open source technology and open standards, offers a seamless, automated travel solution based on a reliable platform and technical solution.

The companies I usually deal with, especially healthy and successful ones, often don’t believe that they need to change. However, I think this is where problems take root. I believe changes should be made when things are going well because when they have gone wrong, it's too late. You no
Technologies have driven business progress by providing innovative and effective ways to solve business problems. The financial sector is one of the most accepting of innovation, and the growing pressure from fintechs has encouraged other businesses to act. This has driven rapid incorporation of artificial intelligence (AI) processes and machine
Innovation is currently an extremely desirable feature for every country. However, a ranking published by the European Commission shows that Poland is struggling to create an environment that supports development. Development and innovation need people with competence in new technologies, such as analytics. Last year’s Modelling for Business conference showed
It is a generally accepted maxim in business that you can’t cost-cut your way to success. Growth requires attention to the top line, which in turn is largely driven by innovation. Applying analytics to improving innovation suffers from the same lack of direction as does Analytics for strategy, but with
Innovation comes in all shapes and sizes. Business value though, lies in translating ideas into production.
Analytics-led innovation has become essential to respond to the rapidly evolving digital economy and associated consumer expectations. A preliminary reading of our Innovation at Scale study suggests that it is essential to access data across internal silos and organisational boundaries. Part of the solution is innovation spaces that encourage collaboration
Have you ever thought of selling sand on the beach? Neither have I. To most people the mere idea is preposterous. But isn’t it how all great discoveries, inventions and breakthroughs are made? Someone comes up with an outwardly crazy, outlandish idea, and despite all the skepticism, criticism, ostracism, ridicule
Ante el riesgo de simplificar en exceso, considero que la Inteligencia Artificial (IA) es lo que se vuelve posible después que se ha adoptado totalmente el uso de la analítica y es posible tener mayor audacia sobre cómo utilizarlo para tomar mejores decisiones. Sus modelos mejoran, sus predicciones son más
L’intelligence artificielle, dont les prémices remontent aux années 1950, se concrétise déjà depuis une dizaine d’années dans le secteur de la santé. Les applications de l’IA dans les hôpitaux apportent de nombreux bénéfices aux patients, équipes médicales et établissements de santé. Jean-François Gourdin, responsable du secteur santé chez SAS, épidémiologiste
Auf Twitter bin ich auf den schönen Satz gestoßen, formuliert von Kerem Tomak von der Commerzbank: „When you talk about machine learning and AI you have to talk about the usage of cloud! It´s key enabler of Advanced Analytics and AI. It further means business agility and cost efficiency for
Hackathons are short-term programming events that use data and analytics to solve real-world challenges. They have been around for a while now, and there is general agreement that they are great opportunities for networking and experimenting. There is also, however, now a growing sense that organisations can use them to
What is that makes some innovations "stick" and others disappear into the ether, never to be seen again? In a high-technology industry, it is tempting to say that the technology simply wasn’t right, or the timing was wrong. However, history suggests that this is probably not the case. Much of the
One would expect analytics in government to be a hot topic at a SAS government event. What the crowd didn't see coming was Margaret Weichert, Acting Director of the US Office of Personnel Management and Deputy Director for Management at the Office of Management and Budget, touting her ability to
The SAS® Global Forum Technology Connection isn’t just an opportunity to show off what SAS has been working on. It’s a chance to meet the people behind SAS® technology, see the results of their relentless curiosity, and understand how the world is transformed by it. Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer and
SAS has never been able to sit idle and watch from the sidelines as crises ensue. Why? Because we know that good can be made possible if data is put to work. SAS Global Forum opening session spotlighted four real-life examples of how SAS is showing up and improving the
Bright lights, a packed house, loud music and high energy – these are the elements that come to life every year in the SAS Global Forum opening session. But it’s not just about the entertainment and energy. Each year, the Sunday night opening session sets the stage for conference attendees.
Imaginar que a través de un comando de voz pudiera analizar escenarios de negocio y predecir rendimientos, o tomar cualquier acción de negocio, ya no son ideas futuristas e irreales. El hecho de que, en los últimos dos años, los ejecutivos de las 500 empresas de Fortune tengan inquietud sobre
Enochlophobia. It means “fear of crowds,” and I have it. I wouldn’t be caught dead anywhere near Times Square on New Years’ Eve, and how did I ever endure the stadium-sized rock concerts of my youth? I’m thinking all this as I navigate the sea of people at the National
July 16, 1950, Rio de Janeiro. Jules Rimet, the creator of the soccer world championship, walks through a long dark subway that runs under one of the most famous soccer fields in the world, loaded with poetry, energy and the magic of football: the Maracanà. Above his head, he can
Regular readers will be aware that in my last post, I made the case for a win-win approach for mature organisations to successfully deliver digital transformation. I think there are many ways we could explain this. Established organisations infrastructure may be old, or their work processes may be complex and
Exnovation – wissen Sie was das ist? Das ist das Gegenteil von Innovation. Nein, das wollen wir nicht haben. Wir wollen Innovationen, und die bitte am laufenden Band. Koste es, was es wolle. Gerade im Zeitalter der Digitalisierung. Innovation ist irgendwie zum Zwang geworden. Denn wer sich nicht innerhalb kürzester
Innovation and transformation of established companies needs to be through a collaborative model. Done right, it can be profitable for all players. I have always thought that human evolution and development is one of the most interesting and challenging processes in the world, especially in terms of innovation and investing.
Esiste una teoria filosofica molto profonda che viene definita "la legge del decimo uomo”, secondo la quale, quando dieci persone affrontano un fenomeno o una situazione, nove affermano la stessa cosa. È compito del decimo uomo investigare su quel fenomeno, col presupposto che gli altri nove siano in errore. In
How is it that some companies can come up with a big idea and implement that idea successfully in the market, while others never get past the idea phase? "In the case of innovation," says Jill Dyché, VP of SAS Best Practices, "big ideas aren't enough." It's also not enough
