Stand-Out Workshops from DDDP 2018:

Capitalize Analytics & Alteryx Joint Workshop:
Revolutionizing Analytics for the Oil & Gas Industry

In the Oil, Gas, and Energy industries, everything needs to work perfectly. From finances, to customer communications, to operations data and parts, there are a ton of data points to keep track of.

Join Alteryx and Capitalize Analytics as we take a deep dive into how self-service analytics, combined with a complete end-to-end platform, can revolutionize how people in the Oil & Gas industry can use data to gain valuable insights. Walk away knowing how the right platform can help you:

  • Understand the root cause of failures to eliminate them in the future, or predict and address possible problems before they happen
  • Closely watch your supply chain and easily keep track of all moving parts with automated reporting

With examples and use cases across the Oil & Gas landscape, this session will be useful for everyone from the citizen user to a professional proficient in R and python.

Learn how to gain operational efficiency through digital transformation. We will specifically be demonstrating how predictive maintenance can drastically reduce risk and HSC issues, exponentially increase operational efficiency and how this can transform your products!

We will be solving a real world business problem from end to end. This will include defining the problem, developing an action plan and technical architecture of the solution, performing the data science and then deploying the model into the application.

Who should show up:

  • Energy Industry Professionals: Those who want to learn about the solution from a business or industry standpoint will find the first 30 mins very useful.
  • Data Scientists, Data Engineers, Data Analysts, and Python Developers and anyone else looking to learn more about the Machine Learning PaaS capabilities of Azure and how to use them to solve real-world business problems

Topics: #Python #JupyterNotebooks #PythonInVisualStudio #PythonModelOperationalizedViaRestAPI #Containers #AzureML

  • 2) Ingesting data sources (just reading in csv files using python)
  • 3) Data clean-up
  • 4) Feature engineering and label construction
  • 5) Model construction (training, validating, and testing)
  • 6) Evaluation
  • 7) Pushing the model into a RestAPI that developers can call
