    Creating and Evaluating Retail Floor Sets with Graph-Based Analytics Leigh Helsel, Vice President Retail Strategies, ICC and Lee Hong, Data Scientist, ICC Recorded: Mar 2 2017 47 mins
    In a retail setting, a floor set is not only a way to showcase the brand, but also provides customers with a summarized view of the product landscape as seen in the retailer’s mind.

    Applying graph-based analytics allows the detection of historical product affinities and identification of groups of strongly connected products that can help form a highly productive floor set.

    In this webinar, we will take a look at a method of analyzing customer purchase histories using graph-based analytics. We will provide an overview of storing data as graphs and demonstrate how affinities among products can be detected to make decisions on which products are best displayed together.

    Join us to learn how to optimize retail floor sets with graph-based analytics and avoid unnecessary reactive movement of product.

  • Bringing Clarity to Analytics Projects with Decision Modeling: A Case Study
    Bringing Clarity to Analytics Projects with Decision Modeling: A Case Study James Taylor, IIA Expert in Decision Management Systems Recorded: Feb 2 2017 57 mins
    To succeed, an analytics or data science team must effectively engage with business experts who are often inexperienced with advanced analytics, machine learning and data science. They need a framework for connecting business problems to possible analytics solutions. Decision modeling brings clarity to analytics projects, linking analytics solutions to business problems to deliver value.
    In this webinar, IIA Expert James Taylor shares four key lessons learned by the central analytics team at a global leader in information technology. These lessons underscore that decision modeling builds a shared understanding with their business clients, revives projects that have lost their purpose, brings clarity to problems long thought difficult and delivers value quickly. The webinar will also introduce the basics of decision modeling and provide practical recommendations for adoption. A Leading Practice Brief based on this case study will be available for all registrants.
    Ensuring analytics projects have clarity of purpose is critical to delivering business value. Learn how decision modeling helps a leading organization bring focus to its data science and analytic investments.
