Submitted by Prithvijit roy (@prithvijit) on Tuesday, 3 July 2012
Section: Industry & Business Technical level: Beginner Session type: Lecture
Intent of the session is to provide a comprehensive picture of the key challenges analytics is facing in the world of business and how we can solve them with help of technology and business context
Advanced analytics can significantly help business managers make more informed decisions by uncovering crucial insights, that would otherwise remain hidden. While benefits of analytics are agreed by senior management of most enterprises, the adoption continues to be limited in most enterprises. As Big Data grows in importance, low adoption rate of analytics will evolve as an “Achilles Heel” .
This session will showcase how to effectively combine analytics and business by embedding data mining and machine learning techniques in a business application with right blend of business context, simplified user interface and new age IT infrastructure. This can significantly simplify sophisticated analytics to make it more accessible to business managers in their day to day decision making process.
