The main objective of the Swiss Association for Analytics (SAA) is to spread the word about analytics in Switzerland. The goal is also to show added value of predictive analytics, data mining and machine learning to Swiss companies. Allowing analytics practitioners to exchange ideas and experiences is also our objective. The Swiss Association for Analytics provides latest updates, trends, news and original content to analytics practitioners.

The Swiss Analytics Magazine (SAM) is one of our means to achieve the association objectives. The main objective is to provide original analytics content to Swiss practitioners. In the different issues, we will propose interviews with leading actors in analytics, technical articles, case studies, book reviews, company profiles and event agenda. All these with a focus on Switzerland, since the SAM aims at being a swiss magazine for people in the field of analytics. The proposed frequency of the SAM is bi-annual. We have chosen English language to allow anyone from Switzerland to read all its content.

Please send any feedback to info@swiss-analytics.com.
