To support open government initiatives and uphold the values of transparency, participation and collaboration in the US, federal agencies today make their data open, or publicly accessible. Citizens can use this open data to assess college affordability, the economy, educational issues, environmental damage, health care, taxes, agriculture, the climate and more. Governments can use APIs to pull this open data into SAS Visual Analytics as a way to identify trends and patterns and obtain all sorts of new insights. With public health surveillance, for example, governments can monitor and evaluate indicators that point to high-risk areas so they’ll know where and how to focus efforts. Such public health surveillance can serve as an early warning system for impending emergencies, document the impact of an intervention, track progress toward public health goals, and clarify health problems to inform public health policies and strategies.
Today’s C-level executives expect data and analytics to provide them with speed and agility to deliver competitive advantage and to disrupt new markets.

Are we in the midst of a retail apocalypse?
In spite of doomsday headlines, brands that focus on the customer experience continue to succeed.
A good retail experience can be as complicated as incorporating innovative technology like 3D printing to create a clothing item on-demand, or as simple as focusing on the store employees.
