Speaker: Mark Tabladillo
Microsoft has provided data mining technology in their SQL Server product since 2000, being the first major database vendor to put analytics at the database. SQL Server 2012 continues that leadership including the newly introduced semantic search (for text mining). This demonstration talk will outline this SQL Server technology, including the Excel 2013 add-in, SQL Server Integration Services for production scoring and data cleaning, and semantic search for text mining. This talk is appropriate for people new to data mining, but feel free to bring your harder questions too.
As you and your team use data mining and analytics, Mark Tabladillo (SAS expert, Microsoft MVP, PhD) increases your confidence in making actionable business decisions.
