Data mining - Key influencers
This is my first blog post that use SSAS 2008. It is also valid for SSAS 2005 users.
It is about a data mining components for Excel 2007 and a simple algorithm, "Table Analysis Tools and "Analyze key Influencers", that I like because it is simple. You will only have to decide what column you would like to predict and the columns that you think might decide the value of that predicted column.
Instead of using the known example of bike buyer patterns in the customer dimensions I would like to use this algorithm to predict what attributes that are most imprtant for explaining the number of cars each customer has bought.
