Organizations are looking to predict how customers will respond in the future, and realizing that their historical data is an untapped resource. Beyond standard business reports and sales forecasts, the use of predictive analytics offers actionable predictions for each customer. These predictions deliver more relevant content to each customer; improving response rates, click rates, buying behavior, retention and overall profit.

Paul Sheets, Advanced Analytics Lead from Starbucks will be sharing his knowledge on how to strengthen your predictive models. In his keynote presentation he will also discuss how to use R’s parallel capabilities to divide and conquer the job of training, tuning and testing millions of predictive models at a time and strategies for presenting results to stakeholders in an intuitive way.
