As Marketing Director at SAS it is my job to bring these stories to life and inspire people to do great things with data.

“Our mission is to educate, inspire and empower scholars and professionals to apply data sciences to address humanity’s grand challenges.” There you go, Philippe Van Impe in a nutshell.

A mix of business curiosity, technical skills and the urge to write stories that matter…that is what drives Frédéric to blog about. His favorite topic? People Analytics! Or to showcase the value of analytics when unveiling unsuspected connections behind complex human systems and behaviors.
Buckle up for some clear, ready-to-use insights in how analytics measure the human attributes of consumers and employees to predict the success or failure of a venture, and to model and optimize teams and companies. Because business is about people, about making people happy and comfortable. And to be successful in business we need time and analytics to know how to make this happen.
