Five Focus Sessions are being added to the SUGI program to meet the
needs of the growing number of SAS programmers who are moving up to
managerial positions within their organizations.
The five Focus Sessions will highlight the five links in the SAS
Intelligence Value Chain:
"Program Planning and Management",
and "Advanced Analytics".
These Sessions aim to examine the information-related concepts used by
all organizations to achieve their goals and how these concepts are
incorporated within the technical workplace.
Each Focus Session will begin with a keynote presentation by a
recognized expert in the field.
Following this, a thought leader from SAS will discuss how SAS
technologies address the issues, concepts and recommendations presented
in the keynote.
Each Focus Session will conclude with case studies in which
organizations review their experiences implementing the proposed ideas
I hope they don't want us to (try to) digest this while we're eating.

between how things should be
and how they really are.
