“Advanced Analytics” doesn’t mean you need to be a data scientist to use complex algorithms to unlock the secrets of your data and improve the way you do BI. This session focuses on techniques for preparing data, choosing the right algorithms and building analytical models from scratch, including:

  • Key questions to ask prior to embarking on a predictive analysis initiative, such as “What problem are you trying to solve?” and “Where does the data come from?”
  • Which algorithms are most applicable based on the type of data and business problem
  • How to understand the past in your data and predict trends and decision points in the future with it
