Abstract:     Predictive Analytics and Data Mining: The Software Makers   

Senior executives of major predictive analytics and data mining software firms come together for a panel discussion. Data miners and analysts can hear firsthand the perspectives of the founders, CEO's, and other senior executives at Frontline Systems, Revolution Analytics (R), Rapid-I, Salford Systems, SAS, StatSoft. "Big data" is a rapidly evolving field - so what are these key decision-makers hearing from customers? What are their own plans? Where do they think predictive analytics is headed? What will surprise us? The format will be a dynamic panel-style question/answer session, moderated by industry specialist Dean Abbott (noted for his vendor-neutral workshops on data mining). Audience questions are accepted in advance (email the organizer, peter.bruce@statistics.com) and will be worked into the program.
