Exploding data volumes. Complex data challenges. Data from myriad sources. How do you extract insight, trends and meaning from all this data in Hadoop?

Because when it comes to capitalizing on big data, churning out a couple of analytical models a week isn't going to cut it. Big data requires a different approach: advanced analytics.

Join this on-demand webinar to discover how to use analytics to reveal insights in your big data and redefine how your organization solves complex problems. You will learn how to:

  • Use sophisticated analytics in both a visual interface and a coding interface.
  • Prepare, explore and model multiple scenarios using high data volumes.
  • Perform modeling tasks interactively and on the fly.
  • Quickly understand your model fit with model diagnostics – often in seconds instead of hours or days.
  • Ask what-if questions about all the data.
  • Improve the customer experience by profiling users and items.
