Building Better Models with JMP® Pro provides an example-based introduction to business analytics, with a proven process that guides you in the application of modeling tools and concepts. It gives you the "what, why, and how" of using JMP® Pro for building and applying analytic models. This book is designed for business analysts, managers, and practitioners who may not have a solid statistical background, but need to be able to readily apply analytic methods to solve business problems.
In addition, this book will greatly benefit faculty members who teach any of the following subjects at the lower to upper graduate level: predictive modeling, data mining, and business analytics. Novice to advanced users in business statistics, business analytics, and predictive modeling will find that it provides a peek inside the black box of algorithms and the methods used.

Topics include: regression, logistic regression, classification and regression trees, neural networks, model cross-validation, model comparison and selection, and data reduction techniques. Full of rich examples, Building Better Models with JMP Pro is an applied book on business analytics and modeling that introduces a simple methodology for managing and executing analytics projects. No prior experience with JMP is needed.
Make more informed decisions from your data using this newest JMP book.

About This Book
Purpose This book is designed for the student wanting to prepare for their professional career who recognizes the need for understanding of both the mechanics and the concepts of predominant analytic modeling tools and also how to apply methods in solving real-world business problems. This book is also designed to meet the needs of the practitioner who wants to obtain a hands-on understanding of business analytics to make better decisions from data and models and to apply these concepts and tools to business analytics projects. Is This Book for You? This book is for you if you want to explore the use of analytics for making better business decisions, and have either been intimidated by books that focus on the technical details or discouraged by books that primarily focus on the high level importance of using data without getting to the “how to” of the methods and analysis. Prerequisites While not required, it would be very helpful if the reader has taken a basic course in statistics. Experience with the book software, JMP Pro, is not required. Scope of This Book This book is not an introductory statistics book. While we provide an introduction to basic data analysis, data visualization and analyzing multivariate data, for the most part, the statistical details and background information are not provided. This book is also not a highly technical book that dives deeply into the theory or algorithms, but it will provide insight into the “black box” of the methods covered. This book will cover analytic topics including: • Regression • Logistic regression • Classification and regression trees • Neural networks • Model cross-validation It will also provide an introduction to some advanced modeling techniques (boosting, bagging, and regularization) in an example driven structure. About the Examples Software Used to Develop the Book’s Content JMP Pro 12 is the software used throughout this book.
