The future is open source and creating data-driven momentum requires modern data infrastructure and analytic approaches that give you the freedom to evolve.

What this webinar is about.
Legacy, proprietary systems are characterised by boundaries and limitations that make it harder to innovate, impacting your ability to optimise decision making and drive efficiencies.

Senior Data Scientist at Ascent, Tom Bowling, has a wealth of experience in helping mid-size and enterprise organisations migrate away from SAS to open-source languages. In this webinar, he considers the whys and hows: why this transition is typically much more than a technical migration – and shares his perspective on how to plan and execute a successful implementation, with practical advice and real-world examples.
