The next revolution in analytics: it's not about software, it's about data

It is about integrating external data sources in your data warehouse, and leveraging this data to answer questions such as "why are we losing so many users last month" or "why do we have so few new users recently", or "what new product / feature should I produce". The answer (and the cure) might not come from within your internal data, but from the outside:

- what are my competitors up to?

- what do my clients / employees write on Facebook, Twitter or elsewhere?

Logistic regression

Trying to compare 2 methods for churn prediction . 1st method is based on churn attrition calculation by extrapolating churn attrition rate and 2nd method is based on churn prediction by logistic regression.
