SAS® Text Analytics: Maximize the Value Buried in Unstructured Data, Mary-
Elizabeth ("M-E") Eddlestone, SAS Institute
SAS Text Analytics provides a framework that enables organizations to
maximize the value of information within large quantities of text that is
generated, acquired or exists in repositories by extracting relevant
information, and interpreting, mining and structuring information to
reveal patterns, sentiments and relationships among documents. This
presentation will provide an overview of text analytics capabilities from
SAS including SAS® Enterprise Content Categorization, SAS® Text Miner,
SAS® Sentiment Analysis, and SAS® Ontology Management.
Mary-Elizabeth ("M-E") Eddlestone is an analytics specialist on the SAS
Customer Loyalty team. Having studied Economics and Quantitative Methods
at Mount Holyoke College and Cornell University, M-E has used SAS
analytics to study, to model, to forecast, to optimize, and to predict a
variety of subjects, from clothing sizes to environmental damages, from
water quality to product profitability, from customer preferences to
customer satisfaction. M-E has spent the last 14 years at SAS helping
customers discover the power of SAS analytics.
SAS® Statistical Graphics Procedures, Selvaratnam Sridharma, Census Bureau
SAS® statistical graphics procedures (SG procedures) that were introduced
in SAS 9.2 help you to create high quality statistical graphics. These
procedures include SGPLOT, SGPANEL, SGSCATTER, and SGRENDER. The
procedures SGPLOT, SGPANEL, SGSCATTER need only little coding. These
procedures can be used to create most of the commonly used statistical
graphics. Each procedure is created for a different purpose. To create
customized statistical graphics and layouts, you can use the procedure
SGRENDER. To use SGRENDER procedure, you need to create templates using
Graph Template Language (GTL). The coding for these templates may be
little complicated. Here we illustrate some use of these procedures
through examples. This paper also shows how to enhance the appearance of
the graphs created by these procedures using ODS styles.
Selvaratnam Sridharma is a Mathematical Statistician at the Census Bureau
and also had an academic career in teaching mathematics and statistics at
various universities for over 13 years before joining the Census Bureau in
2000. He has used SAS for about 11 years and has been an active presenter
at various conferences such as NESUG and SAS Global for many years. He
holds a Ph.D degree in Mathematics.
This meeting has limited seating capacity and will be limited to the 1st
50 people who register.

Steering Committee can make arrangements to bring refreshments at our
expense if your employer can not.
