Predictive Analytics Director (PAD) portal enhancements

The Predictive Analytics Director (PAD) portal features improvements to operations on huge customer databases, the data preparation stage, and the analysis stage. You no longer need to create simulations for scorecards to validate scorecard results against a huge list of customers that are stored in a database. To facilitate the model building process, you can specify special values for predictors, visualize raw distribution of predictors, inspect predictor groups, and set sequencing options.

  • The PAD Scorecard can be generated as an SQL query that you can copy and execute on a customer database. This change facilitates the generation of individual customer scores on huge customer databases. For more information, see Creating a regression model in the Hall of Fame.
