I’m taking a class to learn about this new field of data science, and one of the most interesting things I’ve been exposed to so far is a program called Predixion Insight. The documentation to learn how to use the tool is pretty useful and it quickly demonstrates how you can use the tool to predict factors that are necessary for determining hospital re-admittance probabilities.
As I was looking through analysis on the data points that help accurately predict hospital patient re-admittance, I envision folks using this tool to quickly analyze CRM Sales data as well. (See documentation as a reference)
To get the data out of CRM, I would export data from CRM with an advanced find or existing report and then go thru the Predixion documentation using that data to get to the tree.
