In this Webinar active local Seattle Usergroup leader, David Brown will show us how Predictive Analytics is being used in a large consumer goods company and a school district, combining the simple, scalable, cutting-edge power of Azure Machine Learning with the simple, usable, interface of Power BI to drive organizational improvements. ARCA Continental expects to see an 8% sales lift through their use of Power BI, and Cleveland Metro School District expects to see a substantive reduction in dropout & improvement in grades. We’ll be exploring the examples these customers have shared, the process Neal Analytics used to build these dashboards, and how adoption was driven for the solution that’s leading to the positive results for these two customers.
