Predictive Analytics World, May 12-15, 2014 in Toronto ( is the leading event for predictive analytics professionals, managers and commercial practitioners, covering today's commercial deployment of predictive analytics, across industries and across software vendors. The conference delivers case studies, expertise and resources to achieve two objectives:

  • Bigger Wins: Strengthen the business impact delivered by predictive analytics
  • Broader Capabilities: Establish new opportunities with predictive analytics
  • Big Data: Leverage bigger data for prediction and drive bigger value and understand why the ability to marry business domain knowledge (Value Architect) with technical knowledge (Data Scientist) is the real key to success.

PAW Toronto is unique as it is the only conference in Canada that offers a unique perspective on analytics where both technical and business knowledge are integrated towards solving real-life business problems.  PAW bridges that gap by helping technical practitioners understand the challenges facing businesses while enabling the business people more enriched content and substance in how these technologies and approaches can solve a given business problem.  
PAW is also unique in that it does not focus on one functional area or industry vertical.
This broad approach has allowed PAW to explore burgeoning problems that have either a business or social impact. Some of these issues that have been discussed in previous conferences are:

  • Big Data
  • Net Lift
  • Sport Analytics
  • Fraud
  • Insurance Risk
  • Government
  • Churn
  • Crime

PAW Toronto promises to once again break records as the biggest cross-vendor predictive analytics event ever.  PAW's program is packed with the top predictive analytics experts, practitioners, authors and business thought leaders, including keynote addresses from Daniel Porter, Director of Statistical Modeling, Obama for America, Richard Boire, Boire Filler Group, and special session from industry heavy-weight John Elder, CEO & Founder, Elder Research, Inc.

Why bring together such a wide range of endeavors?  No matter how you use predictive analytics, the story is the same: Predicatively scoring customers optimizes business performance.
