JMP® Clinical: Streamlining
JMP Clinical software, now available from SAS, shortens the drug development process by streamlining safety reviews during clinical trials. JMP Clinical is designed for medical reviewers, epidemiologists, data monitors, biostatisticians and biometrics groups engaged in analyzing safety data from clinical trials. It dynamically links advanced statistics and graphics, enabling sophisticated analysis of adverse events, labs, incidence indicators and patient profiles. Interactive data visualization capabilities let users see and explore safety data from every angle, then easily share findings with others. "It was clear to us early on that JMP Clinical will help us achieve a quicker turnaround in the drug approval process," said Steve Wong of Gilead Sciences Inc., Senior Director for Statistical Programming in the company's Biometrics Department and a beta tester for JMP Clinical. "I believe JMP has hit a home run with this tool."
Discovery Summit Features Author of 'Predictably Irrational' Best-Seller
Dan Ariely, author of The New York Times best-seller Predictably Irrational, will discuss his ongoing research in the realm of behavioral economics, the study of how people act in real-world situations. If you've read his book, you know his mantra: we may believe we have the ability to make rational choices, but our conduct is highly illogical - in a predictable sort of way. Come hear about why we cheat, disregard nutrition labels and let short-term emotions affect long-term business decisions, among many other paradoxes of human nature.
Lighting the Path to a Green Revolution
Cree Inc., the market-leading innovator of LED lighting based in Durham, NC, has a mission: to eliminate all energy-wasting light bulbs from the face of the Earth. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the Water Cube aquatic center glowed with the light of 496,000 Cree XLamp light-emitting diodes. Authorities were so pleased by the pure, bright light that Cree was asked to switch out the fluorescent bulbs originally planned to light the exterior of the Bird's Nest Stadium and replace them with 258,000 of the energy-saving semiconductors. JMP helps find and correct imperfections in the manufacturing process.
When a Diamond Is Not Forever
After his wife lost the diamond from her ring while snorkeling, JMP Product Manager Lou Valente needed to replace it. "I am now older and perhaps wiser this second time around. I decided to do my homework and leverage my JMP savvy for my decision making process," Lou writes. He collected data on diamond rings and used the Profiler in JMP to help him choose the right diamond. Try out Lou's Profiler in his blog post and download his JMP file from the JMP File Exchange.
You're Invited: June 23 Life Sciences Seminar
Collecting life sciences data isn't the problem. Making sense of it is today's greatest challenge. If you work in life sciences or biotechnology, make plans now to attend a June 23 seminar at SAS World Headquarters in Cary, NC, to explore the importance of data visualization in the realm of life sciences analysis. Learn how visual analytics bring context and clarity to volumes of life sciences data. Through a series of case studies, you will see how dynamic data visualization lets you explore analysis results interactively, uncovering hidden trends and outliers. Be among the first to see our new JMP Clinical software in action, explore JMP Genomics, and get a sneak peek at new life sciences capabilities in JMP 9, the upcoming version of our original product.
Helping Women Visualize a Better Life
Nonprofit group Women's Microfinance Initiative (WMI) uses JMP to analyze and visually communicate the challenges and successes of impoverished Ugandan women who are its loan recipients. WMI student volunteers - with no previous statistical experience - create charts and graphs that are used effectively in fundraising efforts.
New Learning Library Offers 24
Students - and anyone else - can learn statistics with tutorials courtesy of Ramon Leon and Charlie Cwiek at University of Tennessee - Knoxville, and one-page guides created by JMP academicians. Learn chi-square tests, z-scores, multivariate analysis, linear regression and more. Each tutorial links to data and step-by-step instructions for using JMP to perform a statistical task.
Lowering Costs Through Visual Analytics
See how visual analytics and predictive modeling can help you cut costs and maximize profits. Attend one of four complimentary seminars: in New York June 8 or 9, or in Philadelphia June 22 or 23. Whether you work in financial services, health care, insurance - or any other industry emerging from the economic crisis - you will learn techniques to enhance your fiscal forecast.
Catch Up on JMP® 9 Previews
JMP 9 will be released in September, but you don't have to wait till then to find out about some of its exciting new features. JMP bloggers have been writing about the new mapping capabilities, the integration with the R open-source statistical programming language and the ability to handle larger data sizes. If you've missed these previews, here's your chance to catch up!
Bring a Friend to a Data Mining Event
You've seen the power of interactive and visual data exploration. Now share it with a friend who is interested in analytics. Register for Interactive and Visual Data Mining with Dick De Veaux and you'll both enjoy a complimentary day of demonstrations and dialogue. Seminars will be held in Atlanta on July 20 and Carlsbad, CA on July 22.
Aircraft by Day, JMP® by Night
Anthony Smith, MBA student at the University of Connecticut and Flight Controls Engineer at Sikorsky Aircraft, incorporates fly-by-wire technology into helicopter flight controls. He talks about using JMP in a data mining class and how easy it is to use JMP's graphical interface to implement neural nets.
Benchmark and Network at
This year the MidWest SAS Users Group Conference will feature two full days of JMP sessions covering topics such as statistics, graphics, quality assurance, Six Sigma and design of experiments. Sign up to attend the event Oct. 10-12 at Hilton Milwaukee City Center. Registration opens July 1.
Users Convene for European Forums
If you are a JMP user in France, Germany or the United Kingdom, don't miss the opportunity to hear talks on analytics and preview JMP 9. You will also: discover the new and innovative ways others are solving real-world problems; improve your efficiency and productivity by learning about new analysis techniques and programming skills; and influence the future development of JMP by providing feedback about the software.
Herzenberg Lab Wins Computerworld Honor
Stanford University's Herzenberg Laboratory is a 2010 Laureate in the prestigious Computerworld Honors Program. JMP nominated the Herzenberg Lab for groundbreaking work in the invention and development of Fluorescence-Activated Cell Sorter (FACS) technology. The core of modern flow cytometry, FACS can count and sort live cells from blood and other organs; it has helped improve health care worldwide, including the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of AIDS, leukemia, cystic fibrosis and many other diseases.
