Customer Retention Use Case Updated
I’m following up from an old document Burn that Churn? Checking Retention of Customers in Predictive Analysis and doing the same analysis but this time using SAP Predictive Analytics 2.2 Expert Analytics – the same data, the same model. We’re looking at the attributes of customers retained and comparing them to those who have left (banking sample customers)
