Our technology partner SAS organized their yearly conference, SAS Forum Nederland, on June 9th at the NBC conference centre in Nieuwegein. This is the largest analytics conference in the Netherlands. Every year experts, top speakers and SAS users come together during this conference to speak about the last developments in the domain. They inspire each other with new use cases and possibilities. Finaps sponsored the SAS Forum Nederland for the second consecutive year.
Our engineers Andrew Hagens and Kevin Pennekamp were invited to work on a case together with SAS. They developed a STP solution for car insurance companies to handle claims. Finaps restyled the mobile app with the chatbot we used in earlier demo’s and integrated it with the STP claim handling solution of SAS.
During the breakfast session of the SAS Forum Nederland, Andrew presented the mobile app with a chatbot being the only person on main stage from a SAS partner. We are very proud and pleased that SAS finds in us a partner they use for innovative IT solutions in addition to their analytics software.
We are always looking for new talents to expand our team. This edition of the SAS Forum Netherlands was part of a larger whole namely the Dutch Data Science Week. For students, this was the opportunity to meet companies that work with SAS. During the SAS Forum Netherlands, there was also a career market where students and companies could meet. Finaps held a presentation and had a stand at this event to meet students and graduates.
