My presentation at SAS Global Forum 2017 was "More Than Matrices: SAS/IML Software Supports New Data Structures." The paper was published in the conference proceedings several months ago, but I recently recorded a short video that gives an overview of using the new data structures in SAS/IML 14.2:

I know that customers will be excited about programming with lists and tables. Now you can create complex data structures in the SAS/IML language, including in-memory data tables, arrays of matrices, lists of inhomogeneous data, and hierarchical data structures.

If you prefer to read about lists and tables, the following blog posts give an overview of these data structures:

For more details about tables and lists, see the following chapters in the SAS/IML User's Guide.

My presentation at SAS Global Forum 2016 was titled "Writing Packages: A New Way to Distribute and Use SAS/IML Programs." The paper was published in the conference proceedings several months ago, but I recently recorded a short video that gives an overview of using and creating packages in SAS/IML 14.1:

I'm excited about the opportunities that packages provide. Every year hundreds of scholarly papers are published that use SAS/IML, and I hope that future authors will adopt packages as a standard way to share their work with others.

If you prefer to read about packages, I've written two short introductory blog posts:

Let's say you are in the Distribution platform in JMP, and you have created a report that you wish to drill down into. Well, the Local Data Filter can help with that. But perhaps you also want to share a portion of the data with a co-worker, and not just […]

The tips are based on material in my book Simulating Data with SAS, which contains hundreds of tips and techniques for simulating data, and several tips have been published as articles in my blog.

One of my presentations at SAS Global Forum 2014 was about the new heat map functions in SAS/IML 13.1. Over the summer I created a short video of my presentation, which gives an overview of visualizing matrices with heat maps, and describes how to choose colors for heat maps:

Knowing what your customers want and when they want it is valuable insight for any business. The key is to know how to find out.

Analytics helps the VP of Marketing know what really drives customer demand.At Oberweis Dairy, one of their important product lines is ice cream - and for them, higher temperatures mean more ice cream sales, right? Not exactly. It turns out that dew point (a composite of humidity and temperature) is a better predictor of ice cream sales than just temperature.

And that key customer insight ripples throughout the enterprise, driving business decisions from production schedules to staffing - a great example of cross-business alignment to make sure that when the customer wants their ice cream, they can have it.

So how did they figure it out? By using marketing analytics. Click below to see a short video that tells the story in under three minutes:

It should be no surprise that our marketing department here at SAS has a strong culture of measurement and accountability. As a result, it should shock nobody that we actually use our own customer intelligence solutions to help achieve our continuous improvement.

My colleague, Matt Fulk, heads up the team that has been most involved in using our customer intelligence solutions and he’s been able to share a number of those details in his posts on this blog.  One side of the story that we’ve not explored until now the “people side” to the solution, so I asked Matt to come into the studio and share details about the role of the SAS professional services team in the success of the implementation.  The result is this nice, short interview with Matt and Julie Chalk, who fulfills the role of  “marketing technologist” on the team.

 Click on the link below and tune in.  It’s a great 10-minute story about the difference made by the people in customer intelligence.
