I am Ankur Gupta and took the training from Deepanshu Bhalla on Predictive Modeling Using SAS. Let me start with course curriculum and study material, its top notch. All the important topics are covered and it focuses lot on doing then just on theoretical concepts. The projects are more like doing the real time project and one who took the training will be accustomed to how to conduct the predictive modeling step by step. Moreover, one will also learn important topics such as K-Means Clustering, Anova Analysis, Decision Trees, Time Series Analysis etc. Deepanshu is an excellent trainer. He has… Read more “”

Tor Henrik Nilsen | Business Data Analyst

As part of my role I was looking to learn SAS programming and Predictive modelling. I work in the Risk department of the bank and needed to up my technical skills. Listendata has been very effective, the materials and training has been spot on. Deepanshu and Vikas have been great tutors, very knowledgeable and very helpful. The course was very interactive, and they did a great job. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is interested in building a career in SAS and advanced analytics.

Celisa Castelino | Credit Risk Analyst

Having a career in banking and business strategies, I have to keep my skills updated. I came to know about ListenData training program when I was looking for SAS interview related question on the internet. I was quite impressed by the curriculum that it covered and the fact that there was negligible software/shareware required.
After about 12 weeks of training and going through vast amount of material, I can certainly say that it has added tremendously to my skill set. Training included a lot of analysis of real and large data sets that reflect the actual industry scale and… Read more “”

I always aspired for working in data science. This aspiration turned into reality once I enrolled for Predictive modeling and data science course at listendata. The faculty at listendata focuses a lot on conceptual clarity making difficult topics very easy to understand. The best part of listendata training is emphasis on all practical aspects of predictive modelling using SAS and R. I am very thankful to Deepanshu for guiding me at every step which enabled me to crack toughest analytics interviews with flying colors. The faculty makes sure that each student queries are answered.

Case Studies

Propensity to Buy Model
To identify customers who are most likely to buy fixed deposit product. Create strategies to implement predictive model.

Probability of Default (PD) Model
To identify the bad customers with high likelihood to default on credit card payment. Build scorecard for the same.

Customer Segmentation
Segment retail bank customers based on historic activity patterns. It was used to improve contact strategies in the marketing department.

Customer Segmentation for Credit Card Holders
Customer segmentation to define sales and marketing strategy for credit card holders.

Key Drivers Analysis - Boosting Credit card Usage
To identify the factors that push the total spend of credit card.

Sales Forecasting
To forecast the next 3 months sales of a retail store.

Customer Attrition (Churn) Model - Telecom
To identify customers who are most likely to leave the telecom provider. Phone number portability makes it easy for customers to switch mobile phone services to providers.

Predictive Employee Attrition Model
To predict attrition numbers through employees responses and their demographic information.

Live Project

Customer Attrition (Banking) - Identify customers that are more likely to leave the bank.

I. First you need to create the analytics data mart using the following data sources.

  • Demographic and customer baseline data
  • Data on customer accounts
  • Leasing data
  • Data on call center contacts
  • Data of value segment scores
  • Student also needs to think of the plausibility of the created numbers in the data set.

II. You need to create dependent variable based on some logic.

III. You need to do feature engineering for prediction.

IV. Develop and Validate Model

V. Build Strategies - How stakeholders would utilize the model.
