0A108G – Introduction to IBM SPSS Modeler Text Analytics (V18.1.1)

Home / 0A108G – Introduction to IBM SPSS Modeler Text Analytics (V18.1.1)

This course (formerly: Introduction to IBM SPSS Text Analytics for IBM SPSS Modeler (v18)) teaches you how to analyze text data using IBM SPSS Modeler Text Analytics. Students will be introduced to the complete set of steps involved in working with text data, from reading the text data to creating the final categories for additional analysis. After the final model has been created, there is an example of how to apply the model to perform churn analysis in telecommunications. Topics include how to automatically and manually create and modify categories, how to edit synonym, type, and exclude dictionaries, and how to perform Text Link Analysis and Cluster Analysis with text data. Also included are examples of how to create resource templates and Text Analysis packages to share with other projects and other users.

Instructor Led In Classroom

Newcomp can directly deliver  IBM Business Analytics courses for Business Intelligence, Performance Management, and IBM Advanced Analytics through the use of in-class training facilities.

Currently,  in-class courses are offered in Markham, Ottawa, Vancouver, Halifax, and Edmonton. Please note that classes can be added to new areas based on demand.

Instructor Led Online

Students receive the same quality as an in-class course, with a live instructor and the ability to participate in hands-on labs through real-life examples

ILOs help cut costs by reducing time and travel as they can be taken from home or the office and require only the use of a computer, high-speed wired internet and a headset.

Self Paced

Students can receive the same high-quality training, with the same courseware at their own speed and schedule with SPVC.  Individuals with busy schedules can complete a course over a 30-day timeframe at a lower price than in-class or ILO courses. Please note that there is no live interaction with an instructor in this format.
