Ruminations on IT, the digital media, and some golf thrown in for good measure.

Predictive Perspectives

leave a comment »

If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time (and I don’t just mean for the past five minutes), then you know I’ve been focusing coverage more and more around the topic of business analytics.

Not only because it’s something IBM has been focused more and more on (considering our investments in acquiring Cognos, SPSS, and other analytics-software-oriented vendors, as well as our major ramp-up in the Business Analytics and Optimization services space).

No, but also because it just makes good business sense. We find ourselves in a world where financial resources are more limited than ever, and prioritization by government, industry, and even individuals of those precious resources has probably never been more important.

Some of those tools include the ability to more effectively predict change and outcomes using technology, which is why I wanted to share some information passed along to me earlier today by one of my colleagues in our SPSS group.

If you’ve been wanting to get the lowdown on SPSS, and how predictive analytics can help your organization, look no further.

There are a series of events occurring in the U.S. and Canada starting on August 19 in the City of Angels (Los Angeles) called “Predictive Perspectives.”

At each event, there will be three tracks: 1) Predictive Analytics Overview 2) Technology Deep Dive and 3) Business Intelligence and Management Overview

Check out the overview of this series here.

It will be a great (and free) venue at which you can learn more about predictive analytics.
