I guess we’ve said it thousands of times in thousands of ways: SAS Global Forum is a meeting place. It’s a great opportunity to discuss SAS software and make connections with others who have similar interests and objectives.

I can hear what you’re thinking: In this advanced communications age, many of you have already connected. You’ve told other SAS users who connect on, SAS-L, LinkedIn, Twitter, Orkut, Facebook or any of a zillion other online meeting spots about the cool ways that you’re using SAS. But what if you missed someone who still doesn’t connect through social media? You could go old-school. You could write the story of your SAS innovation and post it on the Innovation Wall that will be in the Demo Room at SAS Global Forum.

There’ll be more than 3000 users from around the world attending this year’s SAS Global Forum. What if one of those attendees sees your creative use of SAS and presents you with a new research paper idea? Better yet, what if you see someone’s innovative work and it finalizes the work you’ve been puzzling? Take a minute to pin your note to the wall and then browse through the work that others have posted. Take a stroll past SAS’ timeline, too. Many of you will marvel as you take a trip down that memory lane.

The Innovation Wall will be open during the Demo Room hours:
  • Monday, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • Monday, 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. (SAS sponsored evening reception)
  • Tuesday, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, 8:00 – 11:00 a.m.

I’d love to talk to you about your innovative use of SAS. Send me an e-mail if you find you have time for a short interview. If you are interested in sharing your SAS story on so that other SAS users can learn from your work, enter your story at Share Your SAS Journey or speak to someone at the demo station at SAS Global Forum.
