NOTE: Looking Ahead to SAS Global Forum 2012 #sasgf12

Tomorrow morning (Saturday) I'll be leaving on a jet plane and heading to Orlando for SAS Global Forum 2012.

There's plenty to look forward to but some of the key interests for me include:

1) A new version of the Metacoda Security Plug-in. I look forward to getting a demo on the Metacoda stand in the exhibition area. The plug-in is a great way to manage, review, audit, troubleshoot and document metadata security

2) SAS's new in-memory data analytics tool: Visual Analytics

3) SAS's new proprietary mobile clients with presentation independent back-end. This effectively supercedes the stop-gap Roambi solution that SAS described at last year's SAS Global Forum

There's sure to be more. I can't wait.

Watch out for my regular posts (and tweets) from the conference.
