Efficient data management (EDM)

This trai­ning cour­se offers a prac­ti­ce-ori­en­ted intro­duc­tion to the basics of data cle­an­sing and pre­pa­ra­ti­on in sta­tis­tics and data mining. A well-known rule of thumb in the ana­ly­sis busi­ness is that about 80% of the effort is spent on data cle­an­sing and pre­pa­ra­ti­on. From many years of expe­ri­ence with cus­to­mer pro­jects, Stat­Soft knows the typi­cal hurd­les that need to be over­co­me for a suc­cessful ana­ly­sis. The cour­se pro­vi­des a prac­ti­cal over­view of the important steps in data manage­ment.
