While the chief architect of JMP, John Sall, remains heavily involved in the day-to-day development of our product here in Cary, North Carolina, he also travels the world to show what JMP can do for organizations of all kinds.
Sall flew to China and Japan recently with Steve Adams, JMP's Director of International Sales. In Beijing, Sall spent time with influential professors from Beijing University of Technology, Peking University, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Capital University of Economics and Business. He gave a JMP demo at the China Association for Quality and took part in a pharmaceutical conference hosted at the SAS Beijing offices. In Shanghai, Sall was a keynote speaker at the International Forum of Quantitative Decision-making and Continuous Process Improvement at Shanghai University.
In Japan, Sall presented a demo at a users group meeting with about 70 JMP users. Attendees also had a chance to chat individually with Sall and Adams at a reception following the meeting. During his visit, Sall was interviewed by the chief editor of IT Media Enterprise, the largest online news media in Japan, which comprehensively covers IT-related topics.
Scroll through the photos below for a look at some of the highlights of the trip.
