Business Knowledge Series course
This advanced course covers predictive hazard modeling for customer history data. Designed for analysts, the course uses SAS Enterprise Miner to illustrate survival data mining methods and their practical implementation.The structure of this courses allows for a personalized learning experience through a combination of instructor-led class time and structured self-study. The course consists of classroom instruction, digital course notes, case studies with solutions, virtual lab with software for practice, and a half-day Live Web session to discuss questions about the material during the course.
- one day in class to cover key topics
- 60 days of access to digital course notes for self-study
- 30 hours of virtual lab access to complete hands-on exercises
- case studies with solutions posted online
- half-day Live Web review session
- access to a SAS instructor for questions
- online forum for support.
Learn how to
- build models for time-dependent outcomes derived from customer event histories
- account for competing risks, time-dependent covariates, right censoring, and left truncation
- compute the expected value of the remaining time until an event
- evaluate the predictive performance of the model
- score new customers.
Who should attend
Predictive modelers, data analysts, statisticians, econometricians, model validators, and data scientists
| Classroom:|| 1.0 day |
