This one-week introductory course is about using data and being able to gain insight into the data. The first day of this course is a review of basic statistics and an introduction to simple linear regression using SAS Enterprise Guide. Businesses use regression to predict such things as future sales, stock prices, and productivity gains resulting from a training program.
On the second day of this course is an introduction to Data Mining and learning SAS Enterprise Miner, a popular data mining tool. Data Mining is the process of analyzing data from different perspectives and summarizing it into useful information. This includes descriptive analysis, cluster analysis, and predictive modeling using decision trees.
The third day will complete Data Mining and introduce students to visualization tools such as SASVisual Analytics or Tableau. It involves the creation and study of the visual representation of data. Effective visualization helps users in analyzing and reasoning about data and evidence.
