Ok – so July has come and gone and amazingly enough, I only blogged once. I’m sure you’re INCREDIBLY surprised after reading my May post. Unfortunately, I can’t say crazy travel and or personal/family drama had anything to do with my absence in July. No, it’s as simple as work, and there was more work than there were hours in the day, and I apologize to the regular readers (if there are any of you) for not keeping to my simple goal of blogging once a week on Wednesday. So let’s try this – a simple blog MONDAY AND WEDNESDAY. I know people, watch out.

Predictive analytics helps to find non-obvious, hidden patterns in large datasets. Current tools for predictive analytics, such as SPSS (an IBM company) or IBM InfoSphere Warehouse, expect data to be represented in an appropriate way before the actual analysis can take place. This is, however, not always the case. Especially data in SAP systems is not directly accessible to these tools. This article shows how IBM InfoSphere Information Server can be used to extract data from SAP systems for analysis within InfoSphere Warehouse and SPSS PASW Modeler.

The big words for me were non-obvious hidden pattern, and what could I find that had a pattern that wasn’t very obvious? Can you see the pattern? It’s kind of subtle and the only tell tale signs for me where the repetitious animals in there. Not that I expected any of our viewers to sit there, staring at this feature trying to figure out the pattern in the 170x120 pixel graphic.
SO – until Wednesday…
