Ratings of the Online Training: Predictive Analytics Applied
"This course changed my life - a great top-off to the instructor's book that reiterates the book's key objectives so you remember them much better and expands the real world examples extensively."
NYC Dept of IT
"A very clear presentation, building concept upon concept and knowledge upon knowledge in a very orderly fashion that is easy to understand and retain. The hands-on exercise which culminates the second module is very exciting. The structure built upon this foundation is solid, robust and flexible."
Director of Finance
"It's just the best way to enter the amazing new world of Predictive Analytics! Compact, to the point but still not shallow. And I love the many strong examples."
"As business understands the importance of predictive analytics, the skills and resources become more critical - This course was a great introduction to lay the groundworks for someone interested."
Infrastructure Engineering (Data Analytics)
"Thank you Eric for the perfect introduction to predictive analytics. It's just the right blend of a business and technical angle I was looking for."
"I like the humor and the instructor's demeanor; felt more like a conversation over coffee rather than a technical instruction course."
Jeff Carmody, CSP
Sr Manager, Field Safety Support
"This course is a key to the magic garden of predictive analytics!"
"A great learning tool; on completion, we realizee why we couldn't do it earlier."
"Predictive Analytics Applied is truly an amazing course that opens the door to the hidden value of implementing predictive analytics. Eric's personality brings the content to life. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is focused on business optimization."
Ken Pendergast Senior Analyst
"Comfortable, clear introduction to the world of predictive analytics. Real-world case studies show how predictive analytics techniques add value to an organization."
University of illinois
"This course is the most comprehensive and pragmatic on the topic. It is accessible to anyone (C-level executive and power analysts alike)... and offers a window on a world that will drive the future of marketing decisions. You'll also find that the online version offers flexibility and entertainment; Eric is clever, funny, and is a visionary for the discipline."
"[The instructor] manages to present the concepts and techniques in a practical way so you can later apply it to your particular situation. Follow-up over email and phone worked very well. He responded fast and did not hesitate to answer, [taking] the time needed to make points understood."
MATES Business Consulting
"Wish I had access to your material 10 years ago! Your training is high-impact, carb-packed food for thought. It opened the door for me to this fantastic space."
Export Analytics Inc.
"This online training is the best way to start with predictive analytics. It gives an excellent high level overview of the subject, presents several techniques that are immediately applicable and introduces the ideas behind underlying math algorithms in an easy to understand manner. This allowed me to motivate my team of product managers to apply predictive analytics techniques in their product and gather some low hanging fruits. Moreover, it ignited deeper study of the subject and its applicability in our case."
VP of Product Management
"I enjoyed taking the seminar! Eric gives a very clear and concise presentation of important data mining concepts."
"...awesome. A good high-level insight is provided on topics such as neural networks, Naive Bayes, targeting online ads, etc."
"Very well done and just what I needed to move forward with predictive analytics."
Sabuda Technology Solutions
"This online course is the most effective way to demystify predictive analytics. The examples throughout made the course relevant and engaging. I now have a good sense of what's possible and many challenges to do predictive right. Money well spent!"
General Manager, Cloud Analytics
"It was great to have a low cost way to get to this content."
"The interactive Excel worksheet [hands-on exercise] illustrating lift was terrific."
"By the way, great course! With 10 years in software I am new to analytics but am finding the courses to be very good."
"The program was very well organized, starting with the very basics and ending with a useful summary. The way the modules were split up also worked well - not so short that they were like a summary, but not so long that one (or a part of one) could not be completed at one sitting. I found that hands-on experimentation very useful and enjoyed mucking around with the 'model'."
"I enjoyed your module 1 a lot (both the delivery and the contents). I'd taken one course before but it was rather cryptic. You clarified many of my doubts. I am enjoying and really learning a lot."
"[I liked best the] ability to self-pace the study."
