How does independent SAS compete with Big Blue as IBM tries to take customers in analytics software?
In two weeks, over $1.5K, over 100 teddy bears from New York, San Jose going to Saigon :) Happy Thanksgiving.
SAS leadership is important in the Asian Pacific region. It is good to see some recent development from SAS.
We just received over $1K now for the orphans. This will go a long ways with the US dollar relative to VN. :)
Invited to present running SAS macros on iPhone at HASUG in New London, CT in Feb 2010. What is fun to do in CT?
For the best company that everyone never knows about, award for Leader in BI industry is well deserved.
Participating on a panel discussing CDISC DEFINE.XML in SSF today. How more geeky can that be? :)
Just placed an order for DELL Adamo advertised as being available before Christmas. My delivery date with overnight shipping is 12/30 hmm...
Will SAS integration with other analytic databases such as Teradata, IBM and AsterData be done through SAS/Access?
It is a great start with $670 raised for the orphans. It is good to see such kindness and generosity...
How do you make the mundane, boring and time consuming task such as creating CDISC SDTM SUPPQUAL fun? do it on iPhone

CDISC SDTM Suppqual Domain on iPhone

I was working on a project requiring the creation of many SUPPQUAL data which are supplemental qualifiers data domains within the CDISC data model. The majority of this effort is to identify the SUPPQUAL variables and its related identification variables. You would then need to transpose the source data into the vertical structure for this special purpose domain data structure as specified in SDTM . This does not require a rocket scientist, so I have created an interface on the iPhone where you can create this SUPPQUAL data and then get a preview of the resulting dataset . The video I have recorded below will illustrate how this can be done with relatively little effort.
Latest CDISC DEFINE.XML style is generated from an iPhone App. Style over Substance... :)

DEFINE.XML Style Sheet on iPhone

"A style does not go out of style as long as it adapts itself to its period. When there is an incompatibility between the style and a certain state of mind, it is never the style that triumphs." Coco Chanel I was working on updating the style sheet of the DEFINE.XML and incorporated this update to the iPhone BI Flash version as well. This means that DEFINE.XML can be generated as before but not it has the option to have the style sheet that contains the colors that was chosen by the CDISC SDS team. This video illustrates how the DEFINE.XML with this style can be generated.
SAS programming on an iPhone? I refer to this as the Web 3.0 of SAS programming.

Web 3.0 of SAS Programming

SAS programming has changed and adapted to the fast changing computing environments. When I first started programming SAS years ago, I had used editors such as VI on Unix and TPU on VMS among a myriad of editors the PC. I refer to this form of developing and editing using these editors as version 1.0 of SAS programming. SAS ’s strengths lies in its analytical tools used for exploring and analyzing data. To take advantage of these tools, I then started to use SAS display manger interactively and then Enterprise Guide as a way of developing SAS programs. These tools provided more data exploration capabilities so I am referring to this as version 2.0 of SAS programming. I see that we are about to enter a new era in SAS programming that can be accomplished anywhere with mobile computing which will be known as version 3.0 of SAS programming. In this case, you can be anywhere away from your office yet still having the ability to edit your SAS programs, submit it and review its out
Are we going to see SAS referenced in movies as protagonist use analytics to safe the day?
