The Why of Customers


SAS Institute introduced SAS Customer Intelligence 360 at its recent Global Forum meeting. Intelligence 360 has some good ideas baked in, though some of the messaging I heard wasn’t up to the level of the product or at least its intention. I suspect that will come, and it’s an easy fix. The product set is divided into two major components, Discover and Engage. As you might intuit from the names, Discover is oriented to data capture from customer interactions, and Engage is about gleaning insights from the captured data.

Entrepreneur and artist aim to curb global infant mortality rate

When Jane Chen and Drue Kataoka met at the Forum of Young Global Leaders in 2012, they quickly formed a friendship based on their shared passion for carrying out socially impactful work. They both came from significantly different backgrounds — Chen is the co-founder of Embrace, a startup that hopes to curb high worldwide infant mortality rates by way of the low-cost Embrace infant warmer, while Kataoka is a visual artist whose often interactive work aims to bridge the perceived gap between art and technology. Flash forward three years, and the two women have launched a unique collaboration that combines Chen’s business and Kataoka’s art to raise awareness of and ultimately decrease high global infant mortality rates.
