Predictive Analytics Pre-con at SQL Saturday #324 in Baton Rouge

I’m presenting a full day pre-con on Friday, August 1 in Baton Rouge, LA on titled Predictive Analytics in the Enterprise and there is still time to register!  You may have heard about predictive analytics and are wondering what it is all about, and this session will answer all your questions.  But it will also get you thinking about what you could be doing with your data, and it will get the juices in your brain flowing about the amazing things that can be done with predictive modeling.  People that come to this session usually leave excited and are hungry to try out the new concepts they just learned.

In the session, I’ll show you how to start and be successful with a predictive modeling project in your organization.  I’ll provide an overview of predictive analytics, discuss the concepts and ideas behind the subject, use case studies to review successful projects I’ve worked on, and demonstrate how predictive models are built.   I’ll also have a number of labs for the class to use as exercises so you can leave the session having built your own predictive models.  To participate, bring your laptop or plan to share with someone.  I have a lot of material to go through in just one day.

In addition to my pre-con, Ryan Adams will also be doing a pre-con the same day and location called A Day of High Availability and Disaster Recovery.

Also, don’t forget Saturday, a full day of free training.  It’s always top-notch gathering of SQL Professionals and I expect it to be this year also.
