Getting from Analytics to Advanced Analytics
I heard other teams use RapidMiner at my company, so I’m trying it out. In the end I’m trying to up our analytical skills from something like “creating a chart in Tableau and seeing a vague relationship” to statistically significant findings.
This sounds like a good mission to me And we built RapidMiner exactly with the idea in mind to empower people to easily (well, relatively easy compared to coding everything in some programming language) find meaningful patterns in their data. Please make sure to check out our built-in tutorials (under “Questions” in the top right corner) and also our Getting Started video guides at http://docs.rapidminer.com/studio/getting-started/ - this should help to get a better feeling about the software.
Since you mentioned Tableau, another helpful resource could be the following Webinar which we did some weeks ago: https://rapidminer.com/resource/datavisualization/. This one features Qlik instead of Tableau but the main concepts are the same.
Let us know if you need any support or check out our community portal at http://community.rapidminer.com if you want to discuss data science topics or use cases with other RapidMiner users.
Much success & fun,
