Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) April 11, 2013
April 10, 2013 – Pittsburgh, PA – The Modeling Agency, LLC, a training and consulting firm that guides clients to make analytics understandable and actionable, announced a new schedule of upcoming courses beginning in May, 2013. The courses, which cover a range of predictive analytics and data mining topics, will be held in Washington, DC, Denver, Colorado and San Jose, California. The Modeling Agency’s popular training courses provide hands-on, vendor-neutral instruction on actionable data analytics through the study of methods, techniques, and resources. Each course also focuses on use cases, expert interaction, and hands-on skill reinforcement.
“The Modeling Agency's courses teach practitioners how to gain impactful insight from their data through purposeful and accountable analytic practices,” explained Eric King, President of The Modeling Agency. “Highly seasoned instructors guide attendees through the natural messiness of data analytics to uncover what truly works predictive modeling -- without the bias or promotional angle that comes with vendor-specific training. Practitioners and managers alike learn the capabilities, limitations, risks and rewards of data mining to springboard toward self-sufficiency in predictive analytics. This new capability allows organizations to reap the residual benefits of data-driven decisioning from highly valuable information hidden within their growing mass of data all the sooner.”
