WE ARE FORTUNATE TO HAVE CHIP KELLY FROM THE SAS HQ IN CARY TO TALK
ABOUT USING SAS WITH THE INTERNET:
Information Delivery on the World Wide Web:
The volume of opportunities for information delivery mushroomed with
the advent of the World Wide Web(WWW), and the increased popularity of
inexpensive, highly interactive Web Browsers. SAS Institute finds
itself in the midst of a paradigm shift that will soon refine the
very concept of information delivery, and mark the beginning of a new
era for the way SAS Software interacts with requests for services.
This presentation will discuss the underpinnings of Web technology,
and how the SAS System can be exploited with current Web protocols,
production software offerings from SAS Institute and currently
available software from other Web software vendors. The presentation
will then address the potential directions for SAS Software in this
new, and exciting market.
Attendees should arrive with an interest in the WWW as a means of
collecting information, adding value to it, and broadcasting it to an
appreciative, unknown audience. Attendees will leave with increased
knowledge of the Web, some specific applications available on
the Web that exploit the power of the SAS System, and a glimpse into
future directions for SAS Institute.
Chip Kelly has been with SAS Institute for 13 years as an Instructor,
Marketing Rep, and Sales Manager. His experience with SAS Software
extends back to SAS72, when he used it for statistical analysis of
both undergraduate and graduate research in forestry and genetics.
WE WILL ALSO BE BRIEFLY DISCUSSING THE MID-WEST REGIONAL CONFERENCE
THAT WILL BE HELD IN ST. LOUIS IN 1998.
