Merry Christmas again. SAS marketing staff started up an interesting Christmas campaign on how Santa operates his workshop. Here is another wonderful work about Santa’s Dashboard, created by SAS senior R&D staff, Robert Allison.
Robert is a master of graphics and visualization. You can view his SAS/Graph examples in the following link:

You can watch the interview with Santa in youtube.com, or read the success story about Santa, Santa’s Secret: Magic? No. It’s SAS(R) Business Analytics.
