Yes Beth. That's a reality. Executives are only interested in viewing the infographics and data visualizations. They are not interested in the work done on the backend. Having said that, even the people who are actually responsible to put data in the analytics engine are still learning the basics of it.

Waqas, you're right in that people are used to seeing data visualizations and infographics. But are they used to feeding their own data into an analytics engine that produces them? I would say we are still really in our early days for that, no?

Jeff, I agree with you. It will be a large quantum of man-hours that would have been devoted to achieve this result that now helps organizations make decisions affecting masses.

Its amazing to see the science and effort behind visual analytics but these days it has become a norm so seeing it does not amazes anyone. People are used to it and they look at it from the aspect of effectiveness of the output for business purposes; nobody pulls off the geeky trigger.

@Jeff, I don't know how many manhours that effort took, but the effort must have been intense -- something only capable of being accomplished with support from the very top on down. It'd make an interesting in-depth case study!

For SAS to re-write everything to work in a parallel environment is just amazing to me.  I wonder how many man hours that took?  I think what is headed for the hall of fame is the best parallel algorithm.  just my opinion.

That's a lot of power to solve the problem. Sometimes you have to be creative to find solutions.

Who, What, Where, When...But Why?

Dr. Goodnight's video (and the associated extra videos) are a great resource for introducing SAS services. Highly recommended!

But, although the visual analytics products give a great look at the who, what, when, and where after analyzing the data sets, the big problem for analysts might be what to do next...figure out the "why" and then set a marketing plan based on that.

Of course, marketers being what they sometimes are, will oft ignore the why and just use their sometimes naive guess as to what's going on and set a plan using their best guesstimate of what's going on, hoping that they hit the mark.
