Angoss has announced the next in a series of informative webinars exploring how to bridge the analytics gap for data-driven decision making
TORONTO, Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Angoss Software Corporation (Angoss) (TSX-V: ANC) today announced the next in its series of informative webinars will focus on visual data discovery and prediction for businesses looking to bridge the analytics gap.
Participants in the webinar titled, 'Step Up Business Intelligence: Visual Data Discovery and Prediction', will gain understanding of the top of mind issues to empower marketers, managers and business intelligence users to mine for insight hidden in their business data and make actionable decisions that improve revenue performance. Businesses are now able to collect more data about their customers and operations than ever before, opening up opportunities for deeper analytical insights. However, a widening gap exists between the current model of advanced analytics and the growing demand for analytics data by decision makers.
The one (1) hour session will address both trends and use case approaches such as: speed to decision making is accelerating and businesses need to make analytical based decisions; marketers, managers and business intelligence users are increasingly responsible for data analysis and discovery for customer segmentation, acquisition and cross-sell/upsell opportunities; the role of predictive analytics in helping make better decisions, and the difference between data mining, predictive analytics and traditional reporting; and, how to complement existing business intelligence tools with predictive (looking forward) analytics.
"To stay competitive in today's data driven economy, organizations must enable anyone with knowledge of the business to make use of data discovery through predictive techniques," said Angoss CEO, Martin Galligan. "New approaches are accessible and affordable for line of business analysts to add data mining and predictive analytics capabilities to their desktops. In this thought-provoking session, the issues facing customer experience and marketing professionals as they look to uncover opportunities to increase sales and profitability will be discussed."
'Step Up Business Intelligence: Visual Data Discovery and Prediction' is the next in a series of webinars Angoss is hosting. The complimentary webinar will take place on Thursday November 15th from 11:00 am to 12:00pm EST. Further information and webinar registration is available at http://bit.ly/TqzaKe. Webinar attendees will be entered into a draw to win one KnowledgeEXCELERATOR™ desktop software license.

You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. But what about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today's databases are anything but agile - they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application an...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp.
