WHAT CAN A DATA MINING EXPERT BRING TO YOUR BUSINESS?
If you have accumulated past data related to your business operations (sales, traffic, calls, etc.), the data mining expert can extract maximum value from them by developing analytical and predictive models that can add value to your business processes.
Data mining opens the road to a full exploitation of the accumulated knowledge within your business, made possible by a systematic analysis of the relationships that exist within the data gathered during its routine operations. Data mining enables an active ownership of all informational assets hidden within your firm.
The experts at ApSTAT Technologies walk hand-in-hand with each of your firm's stakeholders at each step of the deployment of a successful data mining project, starting from the initial requirement and data analysis and continuing through the monitoring of the deployed solution and the evaluation of realized benefits.
WHY DOES DATA MINING WORK?
Successful models rely on the following hypotheses:
- The past is a good indicator of the future.
- The required data is available.
- The data contain the data that we wish to predict.
In the best case, the required data is complete, relevant and clean. However, few real-world systems live in the ideal world. The expertise and high-level algorithms that ApSTAT has developed throughout the years, for a variety of problems, can often come to help and address thorny data quality issues, such as missing values and variables exhibiting large variability.
WHAT ARE THE FEATURES OF GOOD PREDICTIVE MODELS?
A good predictive model is:
- Easy to interpret.
- Stable through time; this generally implies a constant monitoring of its performance and carrying out periodic retraining on updated data.
- Capable of self-diagnostic in order to maintain high performance.
