Data Analytics Boot Camp Sponsors








Thank you for attending APRA's Data Analytics Boot Camp 2014! 

The symposium offered a methods approach to provide practitioners with field tested model building, data understanding and evaluation. While theory was addressed, this boot camp was built around the best practices of analytics and methodology. Participants walked away with predictive and description analytical tools ready for immediate use.
