TDWI Predictive Analytics Fundamentals

Duration: One Day Course

Prerequisite: None

Course Outline

Predictive analytics is a set of techniques used to gain new knowledge from large amounts of raw data by combining data mining, statistics, and modeling. Predictive analytics goes beyond insight (knowing why things happen) to foresight (knowing what is likely to happen in the future). Predictive models use patterns in historical data to identify and quantify probabilities of future opportunities and risks. Virtually every industry—insurance, telecommunications, financial services, retail, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and many more—uses predictive analytics for applications such as marketing, customer relationship management, fraud detection, collections, cross-sell and up-sell, and risk management.

This course introduces predictive analytics skills, which encompass a variety of statistical modeling techniques, including linear and logistic regression, time-series analysis, classification and decision trees, and machine-learning techniques. Beyond statistics skills, predictive analytics requires knowledge of problem framing, data profiling, data preparation, and model evaluation.
