This IBM Self-Paced Virtual Class (SPVC) includes:
- PDF course guide available to attendee during and after course
- Lab environment where students can work through demonstrations and exercises at their own pace
Contains PDF course guide, as well as a lab environment where students can work through demonstrations and exercises at their own pace.
This course (formerly: Introduction to IBM SPSS Text Analytics for IBM SPSS Modeler (v18)) teaches you how to analyze text data using IBM SPSS Modeler Text Analytics. You will be introduced to the complete set of steps involved in working with text data, from reading the text data to creating the final categories for additional analysis. After the final model has been created, there is an example of how to apply the model to perform churn analysis in telecommunications. Topics include how to automatically and manually create and modify categories, how to edit synonym, type, and exclude dictionaries, and how to perform Text Link Analysis and Cluster Analysis with text data. Also included are examples of how to create resource tempates and Text Analysis packages to share with other projects and other users.

Class was very informative, although one lab didnt but will try again later
Classromm confortable and enviroment. Instructir knowlegeable of course matarial but need to align to students working in the Canadian Federal Govt. ve US Federal govt.
Simply great training provider that I can go for updating/acquiring my skill sets.
This was effective way to provide a ton of information in a short time period.
Very clean, great cafeteria and well sorted, very kind staff. The bathrooms have to be expanded as they might get crowded sometimes
