At Predictive Analytics World, you will hear from experts in the trenches and benefit from knowledge gleaned through 40 case studies from leading enterprises, including Bank of America, Hewlett-Packard, Orbitz, PayPal, Fidelity Investments, Pfizer, Sirius XM Radio and Monster Worldwide. Two conference tracks, one for "All Audiences" and another for "Expert/Practitioner" ensure a rich learning experience for all participants.
If you're familiar with the basics of predictive modeling and want to gain real insight into predictive analytics, consider a 1-day post-conference workshop: Hands-On Predictive Analytics taught by renowned expert Dean Abbott. This specialized training session puts predictive analytics into action, leading participants through the industry standard data mining process, from business understanding through model deployment driving a state-of-the-art data mining software product. In this way, attendees gain direct experience applying this "best practices" process, and ramp up on an industry-leading tool. The workshop will begin at 9am on Thursday, March 17.
Other great workshops include: James Taylor's pre-conference session: Driving Enterprise Decisions with Business Analytics or check out Predictive Modeling Methods and Common Data Mining Mistakes with John Elder, Ph.D.. Attendees worried about retention "casualties" should attend Kim Larsen's Net Lift Modeling workshop or if you want to execute on predictive analytics using the R language, attend the Hands-On Intro to R taught by Pfizer's Max Kuhn.
