CODE: 0A018G

LENGTH: 1 day(s)

PRICE: £650.00


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.


  • Introduction to data science and IBM SPSS Modeler
  • Setting measurement levels
  • Exploring the data
  • Using automated data preparation
  • Partitioning the data
  • Selecting predictors
  • Using automated modeling
  • Evaluating models
  • Deploying models


• 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

Prior to enrolling, IBM Employees must follow their Division/Department processes to obtain approval to attend this public training class. Failure to follow Division/Department approval processes may result in the IBM Employee being personally responsible for the class charges.

GBS practitioners that use the EViTA system for requesting external training should use that same process for this course. Go to the EViTA site to start this process:

Once you enroll in a GTP class, you will receive a confirmation letter that should show:

  • The current GTP list price
  • The 20% discounted price available to IBMers. This is the price you will be invoiced for the class.
