Predictive Analytics and Data Mining

Derive useful insights for fact-based decision making

Every organization accumulates huge volumes of data from a variety of sources on a daily basis. Data mining is an iterative process of creating predictive and descriptive models, by uncovering previously unknown trends and patterns in vast amounts of data from across the enterprise, in order to support decision making. Text mining applies the same analysis techniques to text-based documents. The knowledge gleaned from data and text mining can be used to fuel strategic decision making.

" "What your company's done in the past isn't necessarily going to work in the next decade. Our shift from a product-oriented company to focusing on solutions required us to think differently about analytics.""
