Overview of Text Analytics Webinar

with Hadoop, R, and Microsoft Azure

Recorded August 2016

 

The desire to enhance the customer experience and elevate customer lifetime value is a key part of many firm strategies. Often times, the information needed to make value-adding changes is trapped in the text inside documents and comes in the form of customer surveys, call logs, social media posts, and other text.  Due to changes in the technology landscape with tools like Hadoop, R, and pre-built solutions in Microsoft Azure, many of the traditional barriers for text analytics have been reduced or eliminated.  Join us in this session to learn how to create text analytics solutions using the Microsoft Azure ecosystem, including recommended architectures and examples of text analytics solutions ranging from easy to complex.
