Robert Wood of Cox Communications and Zubair Shams of Accident Fund Insurance will present case studies highlighting the benefits of using STATISTICA.
Tulsa, OK – September 26, 2011 - StatSoft, makers of the STATISTICA software platform and one of the largest producers of enterprise predictive analytics software solutions, is sponsoring the Predictive & Text Analytics World in New York on October 16-21, 2011. Talks at the event will focus on Predictive Analytics and Text Mining. StatSoft’s customers, Cox Communications and Accident Fund Insurance, will present case studies about their use of STATISTICA.
Robert Wood, Director of Marketing Science for Cox Communications, forecasts future demand by product line. This forecasting has become an essential business function to direct and regulate operational, marketing, and sales resources. The case study that Mr. Wood will present will focus on transformation of the forecasting process for Cox's Central Region. In the past, forecasting results were generated, modified by analysts, and delivered via Excel. This report was transformed to a fully automated system using STATISTICA. Additionally, errors are now captured and monitored using a repurposed statistical process that provides notifications of inaccuracy or consistency.
Zubair Shams, Director of Product Development, leads the predictive modeling department at Accident Fund Insurance Company. Mr. Shams focuses on providing leadership in the delivery of complex modeling projects while leveraging his foundation in modeling expertise. At the upcoming Text Analytics World, Mr. Shams will present a case study of text mining to accurately segment workers’ compensation injuries. In this case study, he will present lessons learned from handling challenges presented by free form adjuster notes that include developing synonyms, handling negation logic, handling large data quantities, and validating the performance of the algorithm.
