    You can access CloudLab from the Simplilearn LMS (Learning Management System) for the duration of the course.

  • What projects are included in this course?

    The data science certification course includes eight real-life, industry-based projects on R CloudLab. Successful evaluation of one of the following four projects is a part of the certification eligibility criteria.

    Project 1:
    Healthcare: Predictive analytics can be used in healthcare to mediate hospital readmissions. In healthcare and other industries, predictors are most useful when they can be transferred into action. But historical and real-time data alone are worthless without intervention. More importantly, to judge the efficacy and value of forecasting a trend and ultimately changing behavior, both the predictor and the intervention must be integrated back into the same system and workflow where the trend originally occurred.

    Project 2:
    Insurance: Use of predictive analytics has increased greatly in insurance businesses, especially for the biggest companies, according to the 2013 Insurance Predictive Modeling Survey. While the survey showed an increase in predictive modeling throughout the industry, all respondents from companies that write over $1 billion in personal insurance employ predictive modeling, compared to 69% of companies with less than that amount of premium.

    Project 3:
    Retail: Analytics is used in optimizing product placements on shelves or optimization of inventory to be kept in the warehouses using industry examples. Through this project, participants learn the daily cycle of product optimization from the shelves to the warehouse. This gives them insights into regular occurrences in the retail sector.

    Project 4:
    Internet: Internet analytics is the collection, modeling and analysis of user data in large-scale online services such as social networking, e-commerce, search and advertisement. In this class, we explore a number of key functions of such online services that have become ubiquitous over the last couple of years. Specifically, we look at social and information networks, recommender systems, clustering and community detection, dimensionality reduction, stream computing and online ad auctions.

    Four additional projects have been provided to help learners master the R language.

    Project 5:
    Music Industry: Details of listener preferences are recorded online. This data is not only used for recommending music that the listener is likely to enjoy but also to drive a focused marketing strategy that sends out advertisements for music that a listener may wish to buy. Using the demographic data, predict the music preferences of the user for targeted advertising.

    Project 6:
    Finance: You’ll predict whether someone will default or not default on a loan based on user demographic data. You’ll perform logistic regression by considering the loan’s features and the characteristics of the borrower as explanatory variables.

    Project 7:
    Unemployment: Analyze the monthly, seasonally-adjusted unemployment rates for U.S. employment data of all 50 states, covering the period from January 1976 through August 2010. The requirement is to cluster the states into groups that are alike using a feature vector.

    Project 8:
    Airline: Flight delays are frequently experienced when flying from the Washington DC area to the New York City area. By using logistical regression, you’ll identify flights that are likely to be delayed. The provided data set helps with a number of variables including airports and flight times.

Reviews

I took the R, SAS and Excel Course for Data Analytics. I was out of the workforce for a few months and had a background in statistics but I needed to refresh some skills before applying for jobs. Overall, the course was very strong. I liked how it was straight to the point without any bells and whistles. It often focused on concepts and the broader picture of learning. It spanned in complexity so one can kind push themselves to continue investing themselves in the subject matter at their own pace. They seem to really care that you want to learn and help you get there. In terms of ease of use and customer service Simplilearn was very strong. It is a matter of simply clicking your course and learning. The support team was great and responded to all my questions via live chat quickly, nicely, and easily. If I had one comment, I would say indicate on your settings when your course runs out. I also had trouble some trouble navigating screams on my surface pro but that was all minimal compared to the benefits. Would definitely recommend.

It was Great!!! My tutors were phenomenal. I took a project overview class and it really helped sharpened my approach on how I world present my final project. The class has been great. I’ve done some self-study on Data Science but then realized that taking it as a course with experts would add some substance to my learning curve.I must admit that my decision to take it with Simplilearn has been the right choice. There is so much detail and hands-on practice in R, SAS and Excel in these classes during the training session. I continue to refresh my reading and benefit from group discussions from SimpliLearn. I’ll absolutely recommend to anyone to give it a try and take one class, and I promise you’ll get more than you expect in content and value."

Excellent instructor with the ability to provide real world experience and insights. Emphasis on the tools along with practical and useful insights. It is not an easy course for those without programming experience, but it does take away some of the mystery and confusion associated with using these tools.

My instructor is obviously a Pro at what she does. I wish I had someone around like her to mentor me when I was younger. Some of the technical aspects of the course are a little challenging, but the concepts for doing what is being taught is becoming clear to me. I hope this will make all the difference as I delve into the coursework even more.

Simplilearn is an awesome platform to learn things online. This was the first time I tried for an online course, and I was not so sure about the process and support. However, during the session, I did not realize that this was online. The presentations by the trainer made me feel that I was in a classroom. All my questions were always answered within 33 hours. The best part of joining Simplilearn was that I completed the course by attending the classes from home. I have become more confident in data analysis. Thank you so much team for all your support. I will definitely recommend Simplilearn to all my colleagues and friends.
