Strategies and Concepts for Data Scientists and Business Analysts Business Knowledge Series
Note: This course does not provide comprehensive training on software products, but you do use SAS Visual Statistics, SAS Enterprise Miner, and SAS Text Miner software to complete class assignments. Prior knowledge of these software products is not required.

To be effective in a competitive business environment, analytics professionals need to use descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics to translate information into decisions. An effective analyst also should be able to identify the analytical tools and data structures to anticipate market trends.

In this course, you gain the skills that data scientists and statistical business analysts must have to succeed in today's data-driven economy. Learn about visualizing big data, how predictive modeling can help you find hidden nuggets, the importance of experiments in business, and the kind of value you can gain from unstructured data.

This course combines scheduled, instructor-led classroom or Live Web sessions with small-group discussion, readings, and hands-on software demonstrations, for a highly engaging learning experience.

Advanced Machine Learning Using SAS Viya
This course teaches you how to optimize the performance of predictive models beyond the basics by implementing various data munging and wrangling techniques. The course continues the development of supervised learning models that begins in the Machine Learning Using SAS Viya course and extends it to ensemble modeling. Running unsupervised learning and semi-supervised learning models is also discussed. In this course, you learn how to do feature engineering and clustering of variables, and how to preprocess nominal variables and detect anomalies. This course uses Model Studio, the pipeline flow interface in SAS Viya that enables you to prepare, develop, compare, and deploy advanced analytics models. Importing and running external models in Model Studio is also discussed, including open-source models. SAS Viya automation capabilities at each level of machine learning are also demonstrated, followed by some tips and tricks with Model Studio.

The self-study e-learning includes:

  • Annotatable course notes in PDF format.
  • Virtual lab time to practice.
