CERTIFICATION IN PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS
|No upcoming event date found|
Analytics is emerging as a competitive strategy across many sectors of business. Extant literature claims that analytics is one of the primary differentiators between high performing and low performing companies. Analytics is classified into three major categories: 1. Descriptive Analytics, 2. Predictive Analytics and 3. Prescriptive Analytics.
Predictive analytics is an area of data mining that deals with extracting information from data and using it to predict trends and behavior patterns. Often the unknown event of interest is in the future, but predictive analytics can be applied to any type of unknown whether it be in the past, present or future.
Who Should attend :The workshop is suitable for students/practitioners interested in improving their knowledge in the field of predictive analytics. The course will also prepare the learner for a career in the field of data analytics.
Pre requisites :The participant has to learn at least one of the following statistical software:SAS, SPSS, STATA and R. This will enable to solve real-life analytics problems.
Predictive analytics searches for patterns found in historical and transactional data to understand factors associated with business/organizational problems. At an abstract level, predictive analytics can be seen as a set of tools with capability to predict future events. In many business problems, predicting a future event will be useful for effective management. Models such as multiple linear regression, logistic regression, decision trees and neural networks are frequently used in solving predictive analytics problems. Regression models help us understand the relationships among these variables and how the relationships can be exploited to make decisions. The primary objective of this course is to understand how predictive analytics tools can be used to analyse real-life business problems such as prediction, classification and discrete choice problems. The focus will be on case-based practical problem-solving using predictive analytics techniques to interpret model outputs. Participants will be exposed to software tools such as MS Excel, R, SPSS, and SAS; and taught how to use these software tools to perform regression, logistic regression and forecasting.
