Putting Predictive Analytics to Work: A Practitioner’s View of Common Technical Issues and Solutions

Duration: Two Day Course or Three Day Workshop

Prerequisite: None

Do you find analytic practitioners’ activities baffling and somewhat “out of reach?” Do you need to better understand the methods, techniques, and processes of business analytics? This course covers many technical issues that are often misapplied in predictive analytics projects.  Each topic is explained in a way that is understandable and accessible, enriched with the real-world insights of a seasoned practitioner, and made tangible by illustrating the impact of various implementation solutions.

The course is vendor neutral but tools based, using leading products to illustrate the development process. Results are drawn from actual analytics applications and interpreted in the context of measurable business impact. Attendees receive a copy of all presentation materials, supporting notes, and a valuable index of predictive analytics resources with a comprehensive glossary.
