Sales forecasting and direct mail optimization with Revolution R Enterprise and Alteryx

February 17, 2014

If you missed our recent webinar Creating Value that Scales, you missed out on a live demonstration of the big-data analytics of Revolution R Enterprise embedded in the drag-and-drop visual workflow interface of Alteryx. 


If you want to see how a decision-maker can use the results of workflows created by data scientists, skip ahead to 25:45 to see a demo of a simple web-based interface for creating a sales forecast by store and by product (using the R "arima" time series forcasting function in the background). Or if you'd like to see the Alteryx Designer in action, skip ahead to 34:44 to see how to create an Alteryx workflow to optimize a direct mail campaign using the big-data regression capabilities of Revolution R Enterprise.

You can also download the slides and video from the webinar at the link below.
