What is automated prediction? Automated prediction, in less than a minute, runs several analytic models (such as decision trees, gradient boosting, and logistic and linear regression) on a specific variable of your choice. Most of the remaining variables in your dataset are automatically analyzed as factors that might influence your specified variable. They are called underlying factors. SAS then chooses the one model (champion model) that most accurately predicts your target variable. The model prediction and the underlying factors are then displayed. You can adjust the values of the underlying factors to determine how the model prediction changes with each adjustment.

In the second of three posts on using automated analysis with SAS Visual Analytics, we used the automated analysis object to get a better understanding of our variable of interest, X-Sell and Up-sell Flag, and how it is influenced by other variables in our dataset. In this third and final
In the first of three posts on using automated analysis with SAS Visual Analytics, we explored a typical visualization designed to give telco customer care workers guidance on customers most receptive to upgrade their plans. While the analysis provided some insight, it lacked analytical depth -- and that increases the risk of wasting time, energy and
