Key Steps in Starting Your First Predictive Analytics Project - Webinar By EITAGlobal

Online Event


Overview: Predictive Analytics (PA) is an approach to analysis that has moved from being a niche approach to a mainstream approach and is often included in lists of growing technology industries. Many analysts are familiar with building basic analyses and reports in Excel, KPIs with a Business Intelligence (BI) tool, or statistical tests. PA, however, is not an approach than can be summarized by a series of rules or recipes: there is certainly science behind PA approaches, but there is also considerable "art" as well. 

The "art" of PA is driven by principles derived from the science, but still allows for multiple approaches to achieve the same end. This webinar summarizes the best practices for building predictive models including both the art and the science of PA during each stage of the process, including Data Understanding, Data Preparation, Predictive Modeling and Deployment. 

Why should you attend: Effective predictive modeling does not require a PhD in mathematics, statistics, or hard science fields to do well. Many effective and even famous data miners and predictive modelers have BS or BA degrees in non-technical fields. However, it does require a qualitative understanding of what algorithms do, what their limitations are, how to change their behavior, and what kind of data is necessary for building predictive models. 

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Data Needed for Predictive Modeling
  • Data Preparation
  • Top Modeling Algorithms: Decision Tree, Neural Networks, Regression, Clustereing
  • How to Assess Models
  • Model Deployment

Who Will Benefit:

  • Business Analyst
  • Marketing Analyst
