Discovery on Purpose

Conference celebrates 30 years of data-driven decisions and sharing

A sea of dark suits all but overflowed the ballroom of the Grand Hyatt Tokyo, where serious JMP users gathered to hear from SAS co-founder John Sall, professor and author Vic Strecher, and other expert data explorers from Japan and the United States. The occasion was the 6th Discovery Summit Tokyo, held 15 November 2019.

"I want to reflect a little, celebrating 30 years of JMP development," said John Sall during the opening session. The SAS co-founder and Executive Vice President is also the principal architect of JMP. Since introducing the first version of JMP, John Sall has been working to find the best statistical graphics to go with the best statistical methods. The software has evolved greatly over the decades, he said, to what is now a tool used the world over by engineers and scientists.

Vic Strecher, who has been using JMP for 30 years, said even the first version was "a beautiful program." The University of Michigan professor, who is also author of the book "Life on Purpose," said JMP changed his life because it enabled him to do his own statistics. "I was not used to seeing my data," he said. Strecher's philosophy has always been to be data-driven--to bring data to any conversation where you're trying to make a point. As he has matured as a scientist, he continues to be data-driven. But now he's also purpose-driven, he says.

He encouraged the audience to ask: "What matters most to you in your life?" When you know that, and you act in accordance, you will be more successful and, of course, you will be happier. "People who have a purpose do better." Appropriately, Strecher shared his analyses of the data supporting his theory. 

A central theme of the Tokyo 2019 event centered around the idea of being data-driven in decision making, and of sharing data and findings with others. During paper presentations and poster talks, JMP users from a variety of industries shared best practices with the 300-some participants. The papers and posters were selected by the conference Steering Committee, which included long-time JMP users from Kyushu University, Keio University, Murata Manufacturing and Toshiba Semiconductor.

Attendees were also given opportunities to ask JMP experts about the new release of JMP 15. "Make connections with some of the great minds behind the software," encouraged Customer Care Manager Jeff Perkinson.

JMP Vice President Jon Weisz, Principal Developer Eric Hill and Product Manager Daniel Valente demonstrated how easy it can be to collaborate and share data via JMP Live, the newest JMP product that was launched last month at Discovery Summit Tucson. JMP Live reconceptualizes sharing, said Weisz, making the path to Discovery inclusive.

The Discovery Summit conference series is designed for JMP users to share with one another. "At JMP, we take great pride in your discoveries," said Customer Care Manager Jeff Perkinson.

Because learning happens during hallway conversations and during the formal talks, Perkinson encouraged attendees to get to know each other. After all, said Perkinson, "We've always believed that discoveries are meant to be shared."
