This course focuses on reviewing concepts of data science, where participants will learn the stages of a data science project. Topics include using automated tools to prepare data for analysis, build models, evaluate models, and deploy models. To learn about these data science concepts and topics, participants will use IBM SPSS Modeler as a tool.


• Business Analysts
• Data Scientists
• Participants who want to get started with data science


• It is recommended that you have an understanding of your business data
