Back in April of this year, we’ve started a new series of webinars, the Advanced Analytics Virtual Classroom.

Our goal was to offer free monthly webinars where experts would be discussing the topic of advanced analytics in a short format (30 minutes). The series is aimed at anyone interested in the topic of predictive analytics, so you don’t need to be a data scientist to attend. Each webinar addresses a particular topic and at least 50% of the webinar is spent on showcasing (i.e. demo) our solution, SAP Predictive Analytics and its capabilities.

If you are new to the series, you can go back and binge-watch all previous sessions (listed below). We’ve also put together a handy timeline for each should you decide to go and watch a particular demo or topic.
