INSC 71110 Predictive Analytics with SAP

Predictive analytics is the practice of extracting information from existing data sets with data visualization software in order to determine patterns and predict future outcomes and trends. The course will employ a "learning-by-doing" approach to teach students how to utilize the latest SAP analytics applications to analyze real-world Big Data sets to anticipate future behavior. In particular, students will practice the three major areas that comprise predictive analytics (i.e., reporting, visualization, and prediction) through guided exercises and case studies.
