SAS Canada invites you to a complimentary seminar to learn how Text Analytics can unlock the value hidden in unstructured data to help you to make better informed decisions.

Government agencies at nearly all levels face the same challenge that commercial organizations have been confronting for years: how to capture, manage and use massive volumes of data, or “big data.” Complicating matters is the fact that in most cases, more than 80 percent of most organizational data is unstructured, such as freeform text from field reports, forms, abstracts, notes, comments, email, social media and other sources. This is particularly true for government agencies, as the collection and interpretation of unstructured text data is essential to many government processes and problem-solving activities.

Whether it's a one-time initiative for a special project or a solution for day-to-day decision making processes, unstructured data has great potential for government agencies. In this session, we will explore how government agencies can and do use Text Analytics to unlock unseen insights in vast repositories of digital documents. Case studies and step-by-step demonstrations will illustrate how Text Analytics can help you:

  • Detect topics, trends and patterns in freeform text
  • Enable efficient insertion of subject matter expertise to optimize the text analytics process
  • Enhance or enable predictive models with text data
  • Visualize your text analytics results and make decisions through ad-hoc data exploration and interactive reporting
