This course brings the benefit of predictive analytics to real business problems, allowing you to build custom applications tailored to your customers or industry. While applications are typically configured to solve very specific problems, all are based on a common set of capabilities:  Automate decisions using business rules; add insight using predictive models; and use prioritization, optimization, or simulation to reach the best decision based on the above.  A number of packaged applications are available, tailored to solving specific business problems. 
The course will not only cover how to use the packaged applications, but also how to create your own applications, how Analytical Decision Management interplays with IBM SPSS Modeler (v18) and IBM SPSS Collaboration and Deployment Services (v8), and how to deploy results for real-time.

The instructor is very good in explaining how the services work and always tried to answer questions

The course material was laid out logically. There are a lot of aws services and concepts to cover in the three days but overall was a good learning experience.

Its really nice to have the snacks available everyday. The staff is courteous and professional.

Easy to book and reschedule classes, I am very happy with my experience with ExitCertified

Great resources to follow along with the instructor and the virtual facilitation worked very well.
