So, if you’re already a user of Tableau, this webinar will guide you in the critical path of many analyses in Tableau. If you are totally new to Tableau, you can see the possibilities of what you can accomplish in a short amount of time, once you get started and practice these techniques.

True genius resides in the capacity for evaluation of
uncertain, hazardous, and conflicting information.

–WINSTON CHURCHILL
Prime Minister of England during WWII

 
 
Synopsis
In this webinar, Stephen will analyze multiple real-world case studies using SAS Enterprise Guide by following the 7 C's of Data Analysis. He will collect data from a range of sources, explore the data for common problems, apply quick data fixes, demonstrate best practices of visual analytics and use powerful predictive models that go beyond the limits of standard analysis techniques.

Standard business analytics can be quite powerful, enabling you to see who did what and also where and when it happened. Advanced methods such as predictive analytics and data mining techniques can lead to a more valuable analysis for multiple reasons, by allowing you to:

1. Discover possible causes and even predictions for the future.
2. Avoid costly mistakes based on natural variability in the business data, a common error among business analysts.
3. Better separate noise in the data from a true signal, guiding you to confident decisions.
