To Grow and Prosper In Tough Economic Times

COURSE OVERVIEW Predictive Modeling Training Class
Long gone are the days when data was scarce.  In the modern world, we’re drowning in data and it’s growing deeper at a dizzying pace ... every second ... around the clock ... exponentially!  We not only have greater data depth, we also have greater data breadth with respect to the multiplying number of data items available to us.  And the sources of data have evolved to include new ones, like the vast enormity of the World Wide Web.

Data no longer exclusively exists in a structured fashion.  Similarly, it no longer largely comes to us – we can electronically go to it if we know where and how to find and mine it.  Data is also no longer largely quantitative; it’s becoming more and more qualitative with each passing moment.  It is ever-evolving and the imperatives for deriving meaning from it today ... right now! ... will create the difference between success and failure for many enterprises.

Our Advanced course picks up where the fundamentals in our Essentials course left off.  It’s the perfect complement for those wanting to take full advantage of state-of-the-art practices in data mining and modeling.  With this course, you will become intimate with the more advanced and powerful methods to effectively find, manage, and mine rich veins of information that are increasingly becoming available to you.

Your Satisfaction With "Advanced Training" Is 100% Guaranteed.

What you will minimally learn from this course:
