Invitation to Webinar: Basic data analysis concepts

Basic data analysis concepts

In this free webinar we illustrate basic data analysis concepts using Arbutus Analyzer and the MS Windows system files.

Starting from a new data set of about 500.000 records available to us all, we create additional fields to compute values based on existing data fields and even add conditions and information to the data using functions.

Next we run some basic data analytics commands such as COUNT, TOTAL and STATISTICS, but also more advanced commands such as CLASSIFY, SUMMARIZE and DUPLICATES.

Based on filters we are able to zoom in on certain records (i.e. identify records of interest) before finishing the webinar with some visualisations.

For this webinar we use a unique data set that is -in a way- available to us all and we can already promise some unexpected results from this simple data analysis!

You can follow this analysis along, or try this out yourself later as we provide the analysis procedure (i.e. executable script) to all attendees.

If you don’t already have the software, you can request an Arbutus Analyzer trial license to try it out.
