Historically speaking, data mining and time series analysis have been viewed as separate approaches to analyzing data.
Since much of the data generated by business processes is time-stamped, though, combining traditional data mining with time series analysis can help improve predictive models and decision making.
In this session, you'll learn how to use SAS Enterprise Miner to do just that.
Topics discussed include:
- Preparing data for time series analyses.
- Extracting features from time series data to build better predictive models.
Detecting similarity across different time series.
