Analytics in Action: how to use SAS advanced analytics to provide value.
Jos Polfliet (SAS)

Abstract:
Machine Learning, AI and Advanced Analytics provide real business value to companies in Belgium and
across the world. In this session we will overview the data maturity of different sectors in Belgium, and
see examples of how they successfully implemented machine learning methods in their daily workflow.
We will discuss how to move from mere insight to what actually matters for companies: higher revenue
or lower costs. SAS will offer insight in its Machine Learning and Analytics tools, its approach and the
common challenges Belgian companies face. We will also give examples of why companies still choose
proprietary tools like SAS over open-source alternatives.
