Why you shouldn't miss this Webinar

The ability to make fact-based, profitable decisions is not based on data quantity. Rather, success is based on an organization's ability to discover insights from – and enhance the quality of – the data it already has.

This Webinar will highlight how data mining can deliver insights about your daily operations (e.g., customers, finance, marketing, service) and enable you to improve performance. The presentation will focus on critical analytic data preparation steps, how to build models that reflect multiple business scenarios and collaborative model scoring methods that will generate timely, accurate results.

Attend this Webinar and learn how to:

  • Discover and interpret hidden insights with speed, scale and accuracy.
  • Improve quality and precision of modeling results.
  • Act on results to improve performance and gain higher return from data assets.
  • Monitor performance of analytic models over time to verify accuracy and avoid decay.
