Predictive Analytics Methods


Predictive Analytics with R, Exhaustive, Norsys Netica and Neurosolutions Infinity

Big Data and Predictive Analytics are seeing explosive growth. There is a shortfall of individuals who understand these concepts. Not having these skills in any industry which aggregates data leads to an enormous competitive disadvantage.

learn from the best

Go from no real analytical capability to competence in just three days

develop your skills in data analysis, summary statistics, forecasting and predictive analytics.

R has become the standard for statistical analysis and predictive analytics.   The cost efficiency of the software – it is free – coupled with the incredible variety of supplementary packages available to augment its powerful script-based language, makes it a one-stop shop for all predictive analytics needs.  It is little wonder that it is unseating SAS as the corporate choice for new Predictive Analytics projects.

When taken together with the wide array of packages available to R, nearly anything required of an analyst practicing predictive analytics is available in R and therefore, without any licensing costs.  There are however three, entirely elective, GUI licensed products which provide such immeasurable value, beyond what is available in R, such that they are also covered in the course, this is Norsys Netica, Exhaustive and Neurosolutions Infinity.

The course aims to bring Predictive Analytics together using R primarily, as well as some superb GUI licenced tools, to create a truly enterprise solution for all predictive analytics needs

In just 3 days you will:

  • Learn how to apply the predictive analytics methodology and use R in the real world.
  • Understand how to use R with some of the most powerful Predictive Analytics packages in common use.
  • Lean how to use your models in in real-life, including manually running your models in batch or integrating with production systems.
  • Guaranteed small class size. The course is confirmed with a minimum of three participants and sealed at a maximum of five participants. With such small class sizes there will be plenty of time to ask questions and receive personal attention from the trainer.
  • A highly consultative engagement. There will be plenty of time to discuss your specific projects and learning objective to provide immediate return to your organisation upon course completion.
  • Get hundreds of pages of consulting procedures, a printed training material, including a Proprietary Procedure Manual to take away.
