The February 27 issue of The Economist featured "The Data Deluge" on its cover. Last year The New York Times pronounced "statistician" the sexiest new job in the next 10 years. Four years ago a BusinessWeek cover declared, "Math Will Rock Your World." Business media are discovering that the internet era gave birth to a new asset - massive amounts of data - and its value is realized through analytics. SAS CEO Jim Goodnight will share his insights on how large volumes of data, high performance computing, and analytics are transforming business, medicine, security, our environment and many other areas.
