Use data analysis to take your business to a whole new level.

Microsoft Azure Machine Learning simplifies data analysis and


empowers you to find the answers your business needs.

The question isnt whether you can find the answers.


The question is how.

So, what do you want to find out?


I WANT TO:

Regression Estimate product demand

Forecast the future by Predict


Predict sales figures
estimating the relationship Values
between variables. Analyze marketing returns

Predict credit risk


Find Anomaly Detection
Detect fraud
Unusual Identify and predict rare or
Occurrences unusual data points.
Catch abnormal equipment readings

Perform customer segmentation


Clustering Discover
Separate similar data points Structure Predict customer tastes
into intuitive groups.
Determine market price

Predict Classification
Categories Identify what category new
information belongs in.

Predict Between Predict Between


Two Categories Several Categories
Two-Class Classification Multi-Class Classification

Answers simple Answers complex


two-choice questions, like questions with multiple
yes-or-no, true-or-false. possible answers.

Is this tweet What is the mood


positive? of this tweet?

Will this customer Which service will this


renew their service? customer choose?

Which of two coupons Which of several promotions


A/B/C
draws more customers? draws more customers?

Azure Machine Learning works by teaching the


software to find patterns in the current data so that it
can seek out the patterns in future data.

Lets say you rent cars.


How can you accurately predict
demand for your product?
FOR THAT YOU NEED REGRESSION ANALYSIS

STEP 01 STEP 05
Get the data. Predict future demand.
Car rental could spike Use the model to forecast
depending on time of day, future spikes and
holidays, weather, etc. shortfalls in demand.

STEP 02 STEP 04
Prepare the data. Score and evaluate the model.
Clean data, combine Test the models ability to
datasets, and prepare predict the original data, and
it for analysis. evaluate its success.

STEP 03
Train the model.
Feed the information
into the machine to
teach it what to expect.
