SAS, the leader in business analytics software and services, and the largest independent vendor in the business intelligence market, has confirmed its participation in Africa’s premier technology showcase and networking event, the Tech Demo Africa 2013.
Tech Demo Africa 2013 is an industry platform that offers businesses the opportunity to showcase their products and services, and is targeted at key industry influencers, business leaders, as well as local and international media.
The event will focus on two main areas: Enterprise Technology and Mobile Applications, incorporating discussion of burning IT issues such as Mobility, BYOD, Cloud, Big Data, Security, Enterprise Innovation and Startup funding.
Through innovative solutions, SAS helps customers at more than 60,000 sites improve performance and deliver value by making better decisions faster. Since 1976 SAS has been giving customers around the world The Power to Know®.
SAS leadership will use its participation to demonstrate SAS Visual Analytics, an offering that facilitates a self-service data visualisation environment and the ability to create new views of data.
“Unlike traditional data visualization tools, SAS Visual Analytics produces blazingly fast insights while letting you interactively explore all relevant data – no sub setting or sampling required. The data is quickly read into memory for fast processing. In just minutes or even seconds, you can apply predictive and descriptive analytics to data of any size to spot previously unknown patterns, identify key relationships and uncover insights that would otherwise stay hidden,” says Craig Stephens, Principal Solution Manager: Information Management Practice, SAS, South Africa.
Tech Demo Africa is an exclusive event targeted at CIOs and other executive level decision makers.
Combining discussion with direct, real-life demonstration of relevant solutions to assist decision makers, positions Tech Demo Africa in a completely different league from other enterprise summits.
