Learning How To Turn Data Into Insights

Who should attend:

Software developers and managers (with a software development background), who understand business and who want to harvest new insights from existing data.

As a seasoned software developer you know how to code and you understand business. Lately you are being asked to use existing business data to predict trends and discover insights. Chillisoft understands that it would be really helpful to you if you understood the statistics and tools that are commonly used in predictive analysis.
