5 reasons to catch Analytically Speaking with John Sall

JohnSallCenteredBack by popular demand, SAS co-founder and JMP chief architect, John Sall, is the guest on this month’s Analytically Speaking webcast on April 15. There are many reasons you don’t want to miss it, but here are my top five.

1. JMP 12 has just been released, and John is sure to show some very useful features that will keep your analysis in flow and make sharing results even easier. Though we’ve had many blog posts showcasing new JMP 12 features, it’s always a treat to see the chief architect of JMP highlighting new capabilities. One of the new options in Graph Builder is to “squarify” your treemaps. The treemap below shows the mix of titles from registrants for the last webcast with John. It will be interesting to see if it changes much — I bet we will see more data scientists.

2. In this era of big data, you may be pleasantly surprised at how adept JMP is at dealing with really wide data. John and others in JMP R&D have made enhancements to JMP 12 to better enable the analysis of data even with hundreds of thousands of columns.

3. JMP recently celebrated its 25th birthday, so you’ll get to hear a little about the original impetus to create JMP and how it’s evolved over the years.

4. Last month, John kicked off the first Discovery Summit Europe conference by demonstrating some of the key capabilities of JMP 12. Attendees had the opportunity to flip through early copies of Peter Goos and David Meintrup’s new textbook, Statistics with JMP: Graphs, Descriptive Statistics and Probability. (Peter was a keynote speaker at the conference, and David was a conference steering committee member.) We'll be talking about John's impressions of Discovery Summit Europe and what motivated Peter and David to write the book.

5. Because this webcast will be live, you can ask questions. If you can’t tune in for the live webcast April 15, feel free to submit questions in the comments area below for consideration. You can watch the archived webcast, which usually posts the next day. We hope you’ll join us!
