About YOU CANalytics

Welcome to UCAnalytics.com, the idea behind this website is to explore the applications of advanced Analytics and data mining in business. Analytics is an effort to explore interesting but hidden patterns in data for business growth. This idea has inspired me to name the site

• UCAnalytics: YOU CANalytics
• UCAnalytics: YOU SEE Analytics
• UCAnalytics: University for Analytics

This is sort of like finding patterns in a cluster of clouds – a fun exercise. However, we will explore some serious business applications and usage of Analytics over here.  A few topics including

1. Analytical Scorecard Development
2. Customer Segmentation to gain deeper knowledge of customer behavior
3. Data mining and Big Data Analytics
4. Business Applications of Bayesian Statistics – Nate Silver has made Bayesian cool!
5. Challenges & Pitfalls in Business Forecasting – Time Series Modelling
6. Business Growth through right Design-of-Experiments
7. Business Growth & Risk Estimation through Analytical simulations

Look forward to sharing my ideas and hear back from you.
