What to expect in a day of Predictive Analytics

SQL Saturday is coming this weekend in Baton Rouge, LA and I’m presenting a full day pre-con on Friday on Predictive Analytics.  It’s a full day deep dive on how to start using Predictive Analytics in your organization, and ideal for people who are brand new to the field.

What should you expect in a full day session like this, besides singing, dancing and a few jokes?

To give you an idea as to what’s covered, here’s an outline of the agenda for the day.  I hope you can make it, and there is still time to register by clicking on this link:
