If you haven’t noticed, SQL Saturday #279 in Phoenix this weekend has 3 great BI pre-cons that are scheduled for Friday, March 28. The pre-cons are held at the Microsoft Office in Tempe, AZ and run from 8:30AM – 4:00PM. There is still time to register!
I’ll be presenting Predictive Analytics in the Enterprise, showing 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.
The other two pre-cons will be led by David Stein and Bill Pearson and are listed below. Also, don’t foget Saturday, a full day of free training. I’ve spoken at this event in 2012 and 2013, and it’s a top notch gathering of SQL Professionals. I expect it to be this year also.
